Ready Mix

Ready, Set, Improve!

Like concrete pumpers, most ready mix operations fall into a “local” or “intrastate” classification.  Ready-mix operators are also granted an exemption by FMCSA from the 30-minute break rule.  It has been Thorn Valley’s experience that drivers tiring from the over-the-road lifestyle may find a home with a local ready mix operation solely by virtue of the fact that they possess a valid CDL.  While we recognize this to be a requirement, there are other exposures unique to the ready mix classification that OTR drivers may not be prepared for, and unless properly trained in, can result in serious crashes – including vehicle upset/overturn and rear end collisions for failure to allow proper following distance.  Thorn Valley combines expert knowledge in compliance matters with unique aspects relating to specific operations such as ready mix to help reduce exposures that, unless properly managed, can lead to preventable claims.

Areas of Focus

Bus & Coach

Charter buses, metro/city buses, school buses, and shuttle services are evaluated for safety practices and compliance with federal, state, and local regulations.

Crane & Boom Truck

While operators are not yet mandated to be crane or NCCCO certified in all States, our field specialists review all hazards, training and management practices to ensure safety policies are in place.

Concrete Pumpers

Maintenance, operation, situational awareness, and location are all evaluated. In addition our normal safety and compliance analysis is performed.

Limousine & Taxi

Special risks are affiliated with these types of business. Typically non-DOT regulated, the primary concerns are training, hiring, supervision, and driver turnover.

Para-Trans

Typically not federally regulated, but still require proper driver screening, safety training, supervision, and specialty training in the care and transport of disabled persons.

Ready Mix

Concurrent with normal safety and compliance concerns, our field specialists review the extra training and supervisory practices that are necessary for these risks to operate safely.

School Bus

Student transportation is highly regulated at the state and municipal levels, so it is important that loss control looks at state and local compliance as well as federal. The importance of ensuring that proper driver screening, safety training, and supervision cannot be overemphasized.

Towing & Repo

Most towing and recovery vehicles are subject to compliance with the Federal safety regulations. Our field specialists not only check for compliance with these regulations, but also ensure that proper chaining and securement, maintenance procedures, safety training, and at-scene safety policies are in place.

Trucking

Long haul, short haul, and local delivery trucking companies evaluated for proper hiring, training, safety, and compliance with the federal regulations.

Waste Hauler

Whether hazardous materials or normal waste, waste haulers must comply with the federal regulations. Our field personnel cover all aspects of safety, maintenance, and compliance when evaluating these risks. Special consideration is given to the special risks that these companies pose, such as load securement.
