Truck mixer workshops
ARTICLE
Year on year, CEMEX UK Operations has successfully reduced the level of personal accidents, with a 91% reduction in incidents over the last five years.

CEMEX UK recognised that the accident rate amongst the 55 company truck mixer drivers and 650 independent contract hauliers had not improved to the same degree.

A decision was made to develop a training workshop designed around real incidents that had occurred both within CEMEX UK and the industry in general.

The workshop content was drafted and agreed by senior management and included:

- Truckmixer accidents.
- Safe driving.
- Company policies and procedures.
- Mixer drum entry - confined spaces.
- Mobile phones, seatbelts, drugs & alcohol.
- New legislation.
- Accident reporting.

Handouts were issued to reiterate the most important sections.

The workshops were well received and the content was judged to be very informative, relevant and worthwhile.
