Site Protocol – What to expect when we arrive

  • When the pump arrives on site, the operator will discuss with the customer/site contact, set up requirements and optimum positioning for the pump
  • The operator will then proceed to position the pump and set up the pipelines
  • The operator will prepare the grout and grout the line ready to pump the concrete
  • When the concrete wagon arrives, the driver will back onto the pump and begin to deposit the concrete into the hopper at which point the operator will begin to pump it
  • The pump operator will operate the pump while on site operatives (unless otherwise arranged) direct and move the delivery hose into required position *Please see 'Site Safety Information' for associated risks and risk prevention when using the concrete pump and manoeuvring the delivery hose as high pressures are utilised in its operation
  • When the concrete wagons have finished delivering and all materials have been pumped, the operator will proceed to clean all the concrete from the hopper and pipelines
  • When all cleaning is completed and all pipes and equipment reloaded on to the pump wagon ready for transport, the operator will then prepare the worksheet, completed with hours on site, for the customer/site contact to sign
  • The pump operator will then return to base or continue to the next job
