Keeping Our Readymix Truck Drivers Safe And Healthy

IHCs and Drivers in our NW Market recently attended a Truckmixer Driver Health and Safety and Wellbeing Awareness session. The session was tailored to talking about their specialist skills.

Mark Cowan, MILT of UK Truckmixer Training ran another enthusiastic and interactive Truckmixer Awareness DCPC course. The course was run for us at Preston Brook office last Saturday 1st June.

The course content is specific to the operation of Truckmixers in the Readymix industry, and reflects Mark’s commitment in pushing the industry to recognise the role as a specialist skill and ensuring every operator’s health, safety and wellbeing are prioritised over any production need.

Paul Cheeseman, Operations Manager, commented: “My colleagues and I in the North West agreed that we would ensure that every truckmixer operator locally would attend as part of our 2019 Health and Safety Improvement Plan, and with Mark’s support we are now half way to achieving that.”
