  • What about the Concrete Industry makes it “An Industry that Cares”?

    The Concrete Industry is truly an industry that cares. Among other things, our members care about Safety, about Community, and about the Planet.

    #SafetyMatters –

    The Ontario Construction and Concrete Industries are very committed to safety. In fact the Concrete Ontario Association and its members truly believe that #SafetyMatters and the job isn’t done until all employees make it home safely every night. This means committed to your safety as a Concrete Delivery Professional and committed to the safety of other construction professionals and public around you. There are great details on this in the FAQ “What are the safety standards in the industry?”

    The Concrete industry also provides leadership on safety through the construction industry through its voice at Concrete Ontario. Examples of Concrete-industry driven safety best practices can be found here: https://www.rmcao.org/publications/safety/ and also www.passtruckssafely.ca

    #Camp Ooch & community-giving –
    Childhood cancer changes lives. So does camp. Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium (merged in 2020) is a privately funded charity that brings laughter and joy to kids and families affected by childhood cancer. Year-round community, in-hospital and overnight camp programs deliver fun, friendship and a sense of community at any stage of a childhood cancer journey.
    The ready-mixed concrete industry has been supporting Camp Oochigeas for over 37 years, with an incredible $820,000 donated over that time.

    Even through the intense times of CoVID, our members have risen to the challenge and put community first. Whether it was continued support of Camp Oochigeas, donations of N95 masks to their local hospitals, supporting locations for CoVID vaccination clinics, extra donations to the food banks to those in need, or continued support of the MANY local charities to whom individual members offer support each and every year, don’t hesitate to ask your hiring producer member how they support their local community. They all will have great inspiring stories to tell.

    #ConcreteFuture –

    The Global Cement & Concrete industries have made transparent commitments to NetZero concrete by 2050. While other heavy or building material industries may be avoiding and/or denying this topic, we’re proud to be part of not only a global industry that has a committed path to a better planet, but also a Canadian Cement & Concrete industry who additionally has made a notable 2030 ambition for reduction of CO2 as well. We’re proud of our industry. Transparent. Committed. Resilient. Sustainable.

  • Why should I take the risk and switch jobs?

    On top of the attractive compensation described in another FAQ answer, being a Concrete Delivery Professional comes with some pretty great intangible benefits that are all about how you feel going home at the end of a rewarding day’s work:

    • Direct involvement with the major construction projects in your community ~ it’s a pretty great sense of pride to be involved with building important, landmark projects around you
    • Learning, Growing, Never getting bored ~ allows for the expansion of your technical knowledge regarding construction and provides you with additional skills outside of driving a commercial motor vehicle
    • The ability to positively interact and support the efforts of the local contractors in your community
    • You work and collaborate with a great plant team every day
    • Driving is typically limited to a 60-minute driving radius around the concrete plant out of which you are working.
    • You have a healthy balance of time behind the wheel, at the plant, and at construction sites.
    • Home every night
    • No need to own your own equipment – takes a ton of risk & worry off your shoulders
    • No unrealistic or unsafe delivery quotas ~ this industry has best practices and policies that put safety first cause #SafetyMatters
  • What is the work life balance?

    Ready-mix concrete has a shelf-life of approximately 2 hours, meaning it must be delivered locally. Concrete Delivery Professionals can expect to be home every night allowing for a crucial work/life balance. Hours in the “busy season” can be long – but bring with them opportunities for great earnings. Winter seasons – pending levels of construction activity – can be lighter, with many Concrete Delivery Professionals choosing this as a good time to take vacation time.

    Speak to your hiring producer about this topic if of importance. Some producers have policies around closing for certain holidays / long weekends / etc to support work-life balance for their employees.

  • What sort of physical requirements are involved in being a Concrete Delivery Professional day-to-day?

    Day-to-Day you might expect some and/or all of the following physical requirements. Please note that there is some variation based on hiring producer’s expectations, policies, and equipment:

    • Getting in and out of the cab of your vehicle unassisted both at your home plant as well as on site / delivery locations
    • Climbing up the ladder to the hopper on your truck to inspect and maintain concrete loads, and washing out after
    • Each concrete truck has up to 3 additional concrete chutes that can extend the concrete placement range of the vehicle. These chutes weigh approximately 20 kg each
    • Conduct daily circle checks of the mechanical and electrical systems on your truck to ensure safe use.
    • Accessing various types of construction sites. While site conditions can vary from paved surfaces to native soil conditions on rural sites, the construction sites must be stable enough to safely support a heavy construction vehicle and be properly graded to avoid tripping hazards as you work around the concrete truck.
  • What license is required to drive a ready-mixed concrete truck in the province of Ontario?

    In Ontario an AZ or DZ license is required to operate a ready-mixed concrete truck.

    According to DriveTest from the Ontario Government (https://drivetest.ca/licences/drivers-licences-commercial.html):

    • Class A: Any truck/tractor-trailer or combination of motor vehicle and towed vehicles where the towed vehicles exceed a total gross weight of 4,600 kilograms. Class A license holders may also drive vehicles in Classes D, G, and A with condition (R). A Class A license does not permit you to drive a bus carrying passengers, a motorcycle, or a moped.
    • Class D: Any truck or motor vehicle combination exceeding 11,000 kg, provided the towed vehicle is not over 4,600 kg. Class D license holders may also drive a vehicle in Class G. A Class D license does not permit you to drive a bus carrying passengers, a motorcycle, or a moped.
    • Z Endorsement: A Z air brake endorsement is required on a driver’s license to operate any air-brake-equipped motor vehicle. The Z endorsement can be combined with any of the class A, B, C, D, E, F, or G licenses.
