Midlands-based concrete mixer supplier, Hymix, has redesigned the Readymix Concrete Mixer taking away the need for the ladder and platform thus removing the necessity for the driver to work at height, helping to ensure his or her safety. This is just one of the latest innovations focusing on pedestrian, cyclist and driver safety launched by Hymix at ‘The 2019 Concrete Show’ on 20th and 21st March at the NEC, Birmingham.
The latest innovations have been engineered to address the principal concerns of today’s Readymix Concrete industry including accidents with falls from height and slips, trips and falls, plus a number of actions to help reduce the environmental impact.
James Harper, General Manager at Hymix, said: “Improving safety and helping reduce both serious and minor accidents is a high priority in our vehicle development programme and we aim to work with the industry and key stakeholders to ensure the safety of all involved Our roads are getting busier and potential for danger is greater than ever, it is for everyone in the supply chain to contribute in mitigating risks to all. The first truck to benefit from these innovations plus the latest 360 degree camera system with dynamic views will be on the roads in April.”
