Ready-mix drivers Site survey before pumper arrives!:  Site survey before pumper arrives! Power lines - the #1 killer Pump operators must have 17 foot clearance, or must be de-energized or relocated Ground stability Sufficient space Paths-to-Ground:  Paths-to-Ground Which kind of power line is the worst hazard?:  Which kind of power line is the worst hazard? Transmission? Distribution? 7,200 volts Service drop? Need for Ground Stability:  Need for Ground Stability Weight of Concrete Pumper up to 60,000 pounds Weight of Redi-Mix Truck 65,000 pounds or more Ground Stability Considerations:  Ground Stability Considerations Soil type & compaction Sloping & set-back Proximity to excavation Evidence of cracking Weather Sufficient Space for Pumper:  Sufficient Space for Pumper Not a “pass through” area Ability to deploy outriggers Free of housekeeping hazards Away from overhead activities:  Away from overhead activities Welding Concrete finishing, etc Sufficient lighting?:  Sufficient lighting? During Winter months, most operations begin before dawn Sufficient Space for Redi-Mix Truck:  Sufficient Space for Redi-Mix Truck “Staging area” Clean-out area Removal of mud/gravel before returning to highway Turning radius of Redi-Mix Truck:  Turning radius of Redi-Mix Truck Importance of Communications Ahead of Time:  Importance of Communications Ahead of Time “Can you just drive it around the block?” Setting up the Concrete Pumper:  Setting up the Concrete Pumper Positioning the outriggers Forward Stability:  Forward Stability Outriggers rather than front tires Setting up the Concrete Pumper:  Setting up the Concrete Pumper Positioning the outriggers Schwing v/ Putzmeister specifications Setting up the Concrete Pumper:  Setting up the Concrete Pumper Outrigger footings Setting up the Concrete Pumper:  Setting up the Concrete Pumper Cribbing Sidewalks & driveways are not reliable:  Sidewalks & driveways are not reliable Setting up the Concrete Pumper:  Setting up the Concrete Pumper Hose size & selection Size of aggregate Yards per hour Inspection of Clamps:  Inspection of Clamps General condition Pins Cracks When good clamps go bad…:  When good clamps go bad… Hose Inspection:  Hose Inspection Evidence of wear Kinks Setting up the Concrete Pumper:  Setting up the Concrete Pumper Protecting workers from blow-outs Setting up the Concrete Pumper:  Setting up the Concrete Pumper Keeping out “sightseers” Setting up the Concrete Pumper:  Setting up the Concrete Pumper One more check for power lines Backing in the Redi-Mix Truck:  Backing in the Redi-Mix Truck Designated “spotter” Ensures pump operator & others are clear Stays in sight of driver’s mirrors Backing in the Redi-Mix Truck:  Backing in the Redi-Mix Truck Driver must stop when looses sight of spotter!

Air in the Lines! Why communications are vital:  Air in the Lines! Why communications are vital Driver needs to know where emergency stop is Everyone needs to know what the horn means! Plugs in the system the hazard:  Plugs in the system the hazard Quick build-up in pressure Blow-out of clamps/hoses Plugs in the system:  Plugs in the system Reduction in piping diameter Aggregate too large/piping too small Concrete not properly mixed Poorly cleaned hoses Debris from redi-mix truck Plugs in the system:  Plugs in the system
