Safety

Central Iowa Ready Mix Striving for Safe Production

At CIRM, safety is a commitment by each individual, led by our workforce, supported by our management team, and reflected in our core values.

The achievement of our safety goals is a reflection on the professionalism, expertise, and innovation of our employees. We are dedicated to providing a safe and healthy work environment that enables our employees to work without incident.

We desire that all our employees go home safe every day.  Through the relentless creation of safe work practices, we will provide a safe working environment for our employees, our customers, and our communities.

CIRM believes the execution of safe production depends on the dedicated ownership of all those we employ, including our managers, workforce, and subcontractors. The achievement of this objective requires that we look out for each other and intervene whenever possible to create a safe work climate. We believe motivation is achieved through the systematic use of consequences for both desired and undesired behaviors.

A commitment to work safely is a condition of employment at CIRM and requires an individual commitment from each member of our team.

CIRM utilizes the SLAM process as a tool to aid our employees in identifying, evaluating, and managing potential risks in the workplace. At the start of each shift or as tasks change throughout the workday, employees utilize the SLAM tool to STOP, LOOK, ANALYZE, and MANAGE workplace hazards.

CIRM also uses the following Safety Best Practices:

Training/Certifications:
• Annual DOT Inspections/Daily Pre/Post Trip Inspections
• OSHA 10-hour for all employees/ OSHA 30-hour supervisors
• Basic Orientation in addition to ready mix concrete driver training
• Driver Coaching Process
• Forklift/Loader certification
• Daily Plant Inspections and Periodic Safety Audits/Insurance Carrier Audits

CIRM is a member of multiple ready mix associations and routinely earns IRMCA safety awards.

We are committed to performing services in an accident-free workplace that protects people, assets, and the environment.

Sincerely,

Tim Janssen, VP
