Two On-line Environmental Driver Training Lessons Available

A 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.

(NEW) Mixer 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 and DVD.

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.
