|Modifcations to a concrete technicians' vans
CEMEX has redesigned the interior of concrete technicians’ vans to reduce the manual handling of concrete samples and to improve hygiene.
A working table has been installed at the rear of the van to enable concrete cube moulds to be stored at the correct working height for the technician, minimising the need for stooping or bending whilst making specimens. The table has flanged edges to prevent the cube moulds from moving freely around the vehicle when in transit. Special storage areas have been created for tools and items such as slump cones. A large sealable plastic trunk has been fitted to enable PPE to be stored cleanly and safely. A first aid box, hand cream dispenser and hand towel dispenser have also been fitted where they can be easily accessed by the technician.
The modifications have significantly reduced the manual handling of concrete cube specimens and made it easier to maintain a good standard of housekeeping. Tools and equipment are now safely stored during transit and are easily accessible when working. The location of the cleaning equipment has made it easier to maintain a high standard of hygiene.
