Driver Training for the UK Ready-Mix Industry
HYMIX have now partnered with UK Truckmixer Training Limited, to help improve driver awareness and safety standards to the UK Ready-Mix industry.
UK Truckmixer Training Limited are the only company in the U.K. and Europe who provide dedicated training to ready-mix concrete mixer drivers. With over 60 years experience in the industry, they deliver practical training and JAUPT approved CPC courses. In addition, they also offer a bespoke consultancy service to Ready-Mix companies, both large and small, in the U.K. and overseas, to significantly enhance driver standards and safety.
In 2015 they created the Truckmixer Operator Awareness CPC© as a way of bridging the skills gap for concrete mixer drivers. As the industry didn’t provide any recognised or approved training for mixer drivers, they set about producing a portfolio of services, which would not only improve the safety of the industry but enhance and promote the important role these drivers play. In 2019 they started working with MP Skills, who are part of the Mineral Products Qualification Council [MPQC], who recognised that what we offered was of great benefit, not only to the role of the driver, but to the industry. Concrete Mixers are the most unique vehicles on any roads and dedicated, tailored training should be focused on the driving and operation of these specialist vehicles. Mixer rollovers are a problem across the globe and something they are working hard on eliminating by providing specialised and specific training.
