Masonry Wall Safety during Construction

Some important points for young apprentices and reminders for experienced bricklayers.

During construction work, masonry walls (brick and block) can fail due to side loads on the walls, the rate of construction, inadequate foundations or adjacent excavations. Side loads can include wind, inadvertent impact with the walls or leaning materials against them. Such failures can result in serious injuries or fatalities.
