Operating heavy equipment on a construction site can be dangerous and serious accidents can happen such as running over a crew member, rollovers, or having someone get caught between machines. Drivers of heavy equipment need to remember to take care when mounting or dismounting from their machinery and to follow proper procedures for starting up the equipment. Experts advise that workers never attempt to dismount a moving vehicle, and when shutting down equipment, they need to engage the parking brake and release any pressure from hydraulic controls.
Drivers also need to be aware of their surroundings at all times including watching out for obstacles overhead and underground. Power lines should be deactivated or protected to avoid contact and underground utilities should be identified and marked in advance of any digging. The website, ConstructionConnect also advises that, “Operators should be aware of their swing radius, especially when working in tighter spaces, to avoid hitting other workers, bystanders, or other vehicles or equipment in the vicinity.”
As with any vehicle, drivers of heavy equipment need to wear their seat belt. In addition equipment should not be used to exceed lift capacity or overloaded, and should only be used for its intended purposes. All jobsite workers need to wear the required proper personal protective equipment (PPE) such as safety glasses, hard hats, sturdy boots and gloves. Furthermore, when backing up equipment with workers in the area, a spotter or radio contact should be used to ensure blind spots are clear.

While The Conco Companies have successfully accomplished many significant feats during our decades in the industry, we have always put the safety of our workforce, our fellow trade partners, general contractors and the public first. We are proud of our safety record and it is one of the first things we consider when undertaking a new project.
By partnering with our contractors, we all work together to maintain the highest standard of safety on all of our projects. One of the first things our team does is to create a Site Specific Safety Plan as well as a Pre-Task Plan. We also implement our standard Injury and Illness Prevention Plan (IIPP)/ Accident Prevention Program (APP).
In order to maintain our excellent safety record, the entire Conco workforce – managers and crews alike – are trained in a variety of safety related topics including new industry rules and regulations. Safety programs include Fall Protection, First-Aid/ CPR, Forklift Operation, OSHA 30, Material Rigging, Traffic Control, and more. Furthermore, Conco’s team of safety professionals not only provides our workforce with up-to-date training, but goes out to our jobsites to carry out frequent safety inspections.
One example of our safety protocols includes having all of our concrete pump operators ACPA certified to ensure they operate their equipment safely for not only their protection but for those working around the pump. We also provide each jobsite with specific safety instruction for our other trade partners who routinely work around our pumps as it is important that they are aware of basic concrete pump safety procedures.
One of these groups is ready mix drivers who need to be aware and follow basic guidelines when discharging concrete into a pump in order to protect everyone on the jobsite. To help mitigate the dangers, we have put together a flyer that cites the safety procedures for drivers to follow upon arriving at the jobsite and when they back up to the pump.
At The Conco Companies, we are one of the leading concrete contractors in the Western U.S. and offer a wide range of quality services and products.

Safety has always been important in the successful operation of a concrete construction company. At The Conco Companies, we understand that construction work presents many hazards. In addition to ensuring that all construction operations are performed in accordance with federal OSHA, WISHA, and local standards, we also go many steps above and beyond to protect our employees, partners and the general public.
Conco employs a staff of safety and risk professionals. The job of these professionals is to work with the team to eliminate all construction and “over the road” risks. This team can be found at our project locations carrying out frequent inspections, ensuring employee safety, and monitoring regulatory compliance.
A Culture of Safety & Prevention
To create the safest environment, Conco believes that each and every team member must be trained in hazard prevention and safety standards. Hazard prevention is the core of our safety program. With an entire team who can identify unsafe working conditions and potential work related accidents these hazards can be eliminated early or prevented entirely through individual responsibility and awareness. Conco believes that when safety is the first consideration, everyone wins.
We ensure that our partnerships with contractors are based on a mutual understanding that we will employ the highest standard of safety on all project sites. All projects are provided with a Site Specific Safety Plan and Pre-Task Planning, Injury and Illness Prevention Plan (IIPP)/ Accident Prevention Program (APP), and training is provided to all on Fall Protection, First-Aid/ CPR, Forklift Operation, OSHA 30, Material Rigging, Traffic Control, and all other related areas.
