Environmental Driver Training Lessons
mixer driver’s use of water at the plant and
on the jobsite not only impact the
maintenance of the vehicle but also carries
liabilities if not done correctly. To
address these challenges in an
easy-to-understand format, NRMCA has
produced two informative videos.
Truck Washout illustrates a best
practice system to remove daily concrete
build-up in mixer trucks, it helps with
truck maintenance, reduces chipping and the
amount of water wasted.
In Jobsite Chute Rinse-off, drivers
learn the correct way to handle chute
rinse-off at a construction site so that the
chute is not only clean with minimal water
but also abides by environmental
regulations. Online lessons are available 24
hours a day, seven days a week, and can be
viewed on any computer, be it at work or
home. The online version also includes an
automatic record keeping system that tracks
proof of training by name-title-date. The
lessons are available in an online format
Each streamed lesson is 20-30 minutes long.
Each video is filmed at a ready mixed
producer facility to assure the lesson is
specifically relevant to the concrete
Each lesson includes automatic quizzes that
provide proof of training and comprehension.
Each purchase includes a supervisor's log by
name, date, and title to record
Each lesson is accessible online 24 hours a
day, 7 days a week.

Releases New Specification in Practice (SIP)
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
whether the requirement is mandated by
basis for the requirement, either real
adverse implications of the requirement;
alternative performance criteria; and
benefits of using the performance
requirements in place of the
