Preparing for an OSHA Plant Inspection

If you think OSHA will never visit one of your plants, think again. An average of 70,000 unannounced inspections happen a year between state and federal OSHA agencies. As a result, this video covers the basics you need to know about OSHA’s inspection and enforcement protocol, their expectations, and specifically, the steps in an onsite inspection. Remember, how well you survive is directly proportional to how well you prepare. This video is a great place to start.

2017 Driver’s Hours of Service Compliance Guide


Do you have questions about the Hours of Service 30-minute break? Did you know the ready mixed concrete industry now has an exemption from the 30-minute break? Did you know ready mix drivers' logging exemption hours was extended to 14 hours?


Answers, explanations and guidance on these questions, and more, are now part of NRMCA's Compliance Guide for the Federal Drivers' Hours of Service (HOS) regulations! Over the last decade the federal drivers' Hours of Service (HOS) regulations have been subject to numerous court actions and Congressional meddling. Now, once again, there are recent, new revisions to the HOS rules including the confusing 30-minute break, 34-hour restart provision and when mixer drivers do and don't need to use logs. Do you know how these changes impacts your drivers? Is your company in compliance? Do you know how to be compliant? The 2017 HOS Guide will explain what the law is, how the industry is impacted, and what your company and drivers need to do, or not do, to be compliant. The 2017 HOS Guide also covers the new ready mixed concrete driver compliance scenario for Electronic Logging Devices or ELDs. NRMCA's 2017 Drivers' Hours of Service Regulations Compliance Guide has all the answers to help you and your company be prepared for complying with Hours of Service regulations.

NRMCA Releases New Specification in Practice (SIP) Series

The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association has released a new Specification in Practice (SIP) series. This series was developed by NRMCA’s Research Engineering and Standards Committee and consists of short (2 page) information sheets written in an easy understandable “What, Why and How?” format. The first 5 topics address commonly found high priority prescriptive issues that impact the ability to produce mixtures that are sustainable and attain the intended performance. The 5 topics were chosen by survey and their frequency of occurrence was quantified by a review of more than 100 currently used specifications. The SIPs can be distributed to specifying engineers by ready mixed concrete industry personnel to improve concrete specifications.

Each specification topic is addressed under these headings:

  • States a prescriptive requirement;

  • Indicates whether the requirement is mandated by industry standards;

  • Discusses the basis for the requirement, either real or perceived;

  • Describes adverse implications of the requirement;

  • Suggests alternative performance criteria; and

  • Illuminate the benefits of using the performance requirements in place of the prescriptive requirement.
