The Center to Protect Workers' Rights contracted with the Center for Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, in New York City, to conduct a hazard assessment of truck drivers in the ready mixed concrete industry. The project was to include the following: 1. Review, analysis, and interpretation of OSHA Log 200 and inspection data and literature supplied by the Teamsters and the Center to Protect Workers' Rights. 2. Development of a job description for ready mixed concrete truck drivers and a qualitative hazard assessment based on site observations and literature review. 3. A final report containing summary information on identified work-related hazards, OSHA Log 200 data, and recommendations for hazard abatement and areas for further study. Because the data sources for this analysis are not a representative statistical sample for the ready mixed industry, the findings here do not necessarily exactly reflect the hazards in the industry; for instance, the types of injuries might occur in a different order than shown here if all injuries were counted. However, the data presented show the main safety and health problems encountered by the drivers.
