The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association has released two interrelated safety-training programs aimed at reducing specific accidents within the industry. The two programs are Lockout/Tagout/Tryout and Mixer Drum Cleaning.
Lockout/Tagout/Tryout assists companies in understanding the sources of hazardous energy at RMC facilities and aims to help them create equipment specific procedures that address the source of hazardous energy. Mixer Drum Cleaning covers the responsibilities of the entrant, attendant and entry supervisor in the entry and removal of hardened concrete from inside the mixer drum. Both programs have a quiz at the conclusion of the training along with other forms to help measure the retention of participants.
