Here is some safety information related to working with concrete mixer.

  1. Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment

Potential hazards associated with concrete mixer operation may include:

  • Electric shock
  • Contact with moving parts
  • Struck-by and caught-between hazards
  • Chemical hazards (e.g. cement dust)
  • Noise exposure

The level of risk associated with these hazards will depend on the specific circumstances of the task, including the type and condition of the equipment, the location and environment of the job site, and the competency and experience of the operators and other workers in the vicinity.

  1. Control Measures

To minimize the risk of harm associated with concrete mixer operation, the following control measures will be implemented:

  • All workers involved in the task must be appropriately trained and qualified to operate and maintain the concrete mixer equipment.
  • Before operating the mixer, visually inspect it for damage or defects, and ensure that all guards and safety devices are in place and functioning properly.
  • Only trained and authorised workers may operate the mixer.
  • Appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), including hearing protection, eye protection, and respiratory protection, must be worn by workers when operating the mixer or working in the vicinity of the mixer.
  • The mixer must be placed on a level, stable surface, and chocked to prevent movement.
  • Workers must not reach into the mixer drum while it is rotating or attempt to move it while it is in operation.
  • A minimum distance of 1.5 meters must be maintained between the mixer and any workers or obstacles.
  • When loading materials into the mixer, the mixer must be turned off, and the drum must be locked in place.
  • Workers must use appropriate lifting equipment and techniques to move bags of cement or other materials, rather than attempting to lift them manually.
  • Workers must use appropriate tools to clear any blockages or obstructions in the mixer, and must not use their hands or other body parts to do so.
  • Cement dust must be minimised by using appropriate ventilation and dust control measures, such as wetting down the material prior to loading it into the mixer.
  • Workers must ensure that the mixer is turned off and unplugged from the power source before attempting any maintenance or repairs.
  1. Emergency Procedures

In the event of an emergency, workers must:

  • Shut off power to the mixer immediately and remove the plug from the power source.
  • Call for medical assistance if a worker is injured.
  • Evacuate the area if there is a risk of fire or explosion.
  • Report the incident to the supervisor or manager and complete an incident report.

Gary’s Safety Tips

Hey there, my friends! Today, I want to talk to you about a question that comes up a lot in the world of work: is a safe work method statement a legal document?

Now, before we dive in, let me just say that I’m not a lawyer, and I’m not giving legal advice. I’m just sharing my thoughts and experiences as a businessman and entrepreneur. So, with that disclaimer out of the way, let’s get into it!

First of all, what is a safe work method statement? Basically, it’s a document that outlines the steps and procedures that will be used to complete a job or task safely. It’s often used in industries like construction, manufacturing, and mining, where there are a lot of potential hazards and risks involved.

Now, when it comes to whether a safe work method statement is a legal document, the answer is… it depends. In some cases, yes, it can be considered a legal document. For example, if there’s an accident on the job and there’s a legal investigation or court case, the safe work method statement can be used as evidence to show that the company took reasonable steps to prevent the accident.

However, just having a safe work method statement isn’t enough to protect you from legal liability. It’s important to actually follow the procedures outlined in the statement and make sure that everyone involved in the job or task is aware of and trained on those procedures.

In fact, I would argue that the most important part of a safe work method statement isn’t the document itself, but the culture of safety and accountability that it represents. If you’re just going through the motions of creating a safe work method statement to check off a box or meet a legal requirement, but you’re not actually committed to creating a safe work environment for your employees, then you’re not really doing anyone any favours.

So, if you’re in a position where you’re responsible for creating or enforcing safe work method statements, my advice to you is to take it seriously. Don’t just do the bare minimum to meet legal requirements – go above and beyond to create a culture of safety in your workplace.

Make sure that your employees are trained on the procedures outlined in the statement, and hold them accountable for following those procedures. Encourage them to speak up if they see something that could be a safety hazard, and make sure that they know that their safety is your top priority.

And finally, remember that safety isn’t just a legal obligation – it’s a moral obligation as well. You have a responsibility to create a safe work environment for your employees, and that’s not something that can be taken lightly.

So, to sum up: is a safe work method statement a legal document? Yes, it can be. But more importantly, it’s a representation of your commitment to creating a safe work environment for your employees. So, take it seriously, and do everything in your power to create a culture of safety in your workplace. Your employees (and your bottom line) will thank you for it.
