Here is some safety information related to using a self-loading concrete mixer.

Hazard Identification: The following hazards have been identified during the operation of a self-loading concrete mixer:

  • Risk of collision with other vehicles or personnel on site.
  • Risk of injury due to falls from height while accessing the mixer.
  • Risk of injury due to manual handling of heavy materials.
  • Risk of injury due to contact with moving parts of the mixer.
  • Risk of injury due to exposure to cement dust and noise.

Control Measures:

  1. Training and Competency: Only trained and competent operators are allowed to operate the self-loading concrete mixer. The operators must hold a valid license for the vehicle and have completed relevant safety training.
  2. Site Safety: The site must be clearly marked with appropriate signage to warn other vehicles and personnel of the presence of the mixer. Traffic cones must be placed around the mixer to provide a clear perimeter.
  3. Access and Egress: The operator must use the designated access and egress points to enter and exit the mixer. The access points must be equipped with slip-resistant steps and handrails to prevent falls.
  4. Manual Handling: The operator must use mechanical aids, such as a hoist or crane, to load heavy materials onto the mixer. The operator must also wear appropriate personal protective equipment, such as gloves and safety boots, when handling materials.
  5. Moving Parts: The operator must ensure that all moving parts of the mixer are turned off before attempting to access or maintain the equipment. The operator must also ensure that any guards or safety devices are in place and functioning properly.
  6. Cement Dust and Noise: The operator must wear appropriate personal protective equipment, such as a dust mask and earplugs, to protect against exposure to cement dust and noise.

Procedure:

  1. Pre-Operation Inspection: The operator must perform a visual and functional inspection of the mixer before starting the engine. The inspection must include checking the hydraulic system, tires, brakes, steering, and other critical components.
  2. Loading: The operator must use mechanical aids, such as a hoist or crane, to load the materials onto the mixer. The operator must ensure that the materials are evenly distributed and the weight is within the maximum load capacity of the mixer.
  3. Mixing: The operator must start the engine and engage the mixing drum. The operator must monitor the mixing process to ensure that the materials are thoroughly mixed.
  4. Delivery: The operator must drive the mixer to the delivery site, following all traffic rules and regulations. The operator must also take necessary precautions, such as using the horn, to warn other vehicles and pedestrians of the presence of the mixer.
  5. Discharge: The operator must use the hydraulic system to discharge the mixed concrete at the delivery site. The operator must ensure that the concrete is discharged in a safe and controlled manner.
  6. Post-Operation Inspection: The operator must perform a post-operation inspection of the mixer to ensure that all components are in good working condition. Any defects or damage must be reported to the supervisor immediately.

Emergency Procedures:

In case of an emergency, such as a collision or injury, the following procedures must be followed:

  • Stop the mixer and turn off the engine.
  • Call emergency services and report the incident.
  • Provide first aid to the injured person.
  • Secure the site and prevent access by other personnel until the emergency services arrive.

Gary’s Safety Tips

Hey there, my name is Gary and today I want to talk about the dangers of working with a self-loading concrete mixer and some safety recommendations that can help you avoid any accidents.

Firstly, let me emphasise how important it is to take safety seriously when working with heavy machinery. The self-loading concrete mixer is no exception, and if not handled properly, it can cause serious injury or even death. So, let’s dive into some of the dangers and safety measures you need to be aware of.

One of the biggest dangers of a self-loading concrete mixer is the potential for it to tip over. These mixers are incredibly heavy and can become unstable if not properly balanced. That’s why it’s critical to ensure the mixer is on level ground before beginning any work. Additionally, it’s important to make sure the mixer’s load is evenly distributed, and not overloaded on one side. You should also be mindful of any slopes or uneven surfaces that could cause the mixer to tip over.

Another danger when working with a self-loading concrete mixer is the potential for entanglement. These machines have a lot of moving parts, and it’s crucial to keep your hands and other body parts away from them. Before starting the mixer, make sure all guards and safety devices are in place and functioning properly. You should also avoid wearing loose clothing or jewellery that could get caught in the machine.

In addition to entanglement, it’s crucial to be aware of the risk of being struck by flying debris. When the mixer is in operation, it can throw rocks, stones, and other debris at high speeds. That’s why it’s essential to wear personal protective equipment, such as safety glasses and a hard hat, to protect yourself from any potential hazards.

Another critical safety measure is to avoid putting your hands or any other body part inside the mixer when it’s in operation. It may seem obvious, but I can’t stress enough how important it is to never attempt to dislodge any material stuck inside the mixer while it’s still running. Instead, turn off the mixer and allow it to come to a complete stop before attempting to clear any blockages.

When operating a self-loading concrete mixer, it’s also essential to follow proper lifting techniques. The mixer’s chute can be heavy and cumbersome, and it’s crucial to avoid any strain or injury when moving it. Always lift with your legs, not your back, and be mindful of your posture to avoid any unnecessary strain or pain.

Lastly, never attempt to modify or repair the mixer on your own. These machines are complex and require specialised knowledge to operate and maintain. If you encounter any issues with the mixer, contact a professional technician immediately to ensure proper repairs and maintenance are performed.

In conclusion, working with a self-loading concrete mixer can be dangerous, but by following these safety recommendations, you can reduce your risk of accidents and injuries. Always be mindful of your surroundings, wear personal protective equipment, and follow proper lifting techniques. Remember, safety should always be your top priority when working with heavy machinery. Stay safe out there, folks!
