Concrete operators are being instructed to "review their current risk assessment and safe system of work for cleaning the interior of truck mounted mixing drums".
SAFE SYSTEM OF WORK
Operators must be provided with adequate
information, instruction and training, and the correct equipment for the job. Adequate control measures must be in place and the work activity supervised.
Key considerations include:
Confined Space Entry
Effective Isolation & Lockout
Drum Access Hatches
Noise and Vibration
Permit to Work
Concrete Operators should eliminate the need to enter the mixing drum to perform cleaning activities where possible.
Concrete Operators MUST consider whether this work can be completed without the need for entry into the mixer - this is the safest and preferred option.
Technology is now available that eliminates the requirement for individuals to enter the mixer drum to remove hardened concrete; DRUMBLASTER is an automated system that will clean the inside of your concrete drums by initiating multiple water jets to remove any waste before it hardens.
As well as providing a SAFE CLEANING PROCEDURE FOR TRUCK MOUNTED MIXING DRUMS, DRUMBLASTER will:
Reduce chipping costs
