NRMCA Unveils PPE Training Program
The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) recently introduced a personal protective equipment (PPE) training program, which comes in the form of a CD-based PowerPoint presentation and instructor notes that are separated into a train-the-trainer section and four individual PPE modules for ease of training ready mix concrete personnel.
A sample PPE assessment and welding shade guide also is enclosed. Finally, a quiz for every section and training documentation form is enclosed to help keep track of personnel training. The aim of the program is to improve safety-related procedures at the plant level, said NRMCA’s managing director of Compliance. Ideal instructors for the program include, but are not limited to, a concrete producer’s safety, human resources and plant manager personnel.
“The personal protective equipment training course was designed with input from the NRMCA Operations, Environmental and Safety Committee to ensure that examples are industry-specific, providing practical applications while also addressing our safety needs,” said Steve Jones, director of safety and human resources at NRMCA member company Chandler Concrete and NRMCA Safety Task Group chairman. “We have broken the course down to a train-the-trainer module and separate modules of about 15 minutes each.”
