Inspection Programs

The importance of a comprehensive inspection program cannot be understated. Regular inspections of your equipment not only help prevent untimely breakdowns and loss of revenue, but can also reveal issues which could lead to a large incident and costly insurance claim.

It’s been a busy year for ACPA’s Workforce Development program, with many new initiatives to help our members recruit job candidates. By drawing upon the latest technology, strategic partnerships and good old-fashioned networking, we’re ready to see a fruitful 2018 for recruitment in the concrete pumping industry.

Electronic Logging Devices – Mandate begins December 18, 2017

Concrete pump drivers who operate only within a state under a state’s unique HOS regulations are only required to utilize an ELD if that state has adopted the federal requirement to apply to “intrastate” trucking operations. Texas adopted an intrastate mandate to begin in December of 2019. California is “talking” about a compliance date of January 1, 2021! If you operate exclusively within either of these two states’ borders under state HOS rules, no mandate applies for now and you can continue to use paper logs. Some states have adopted, by reference, the federal requirement to apply to their “intrastate” markets. You should check with your state police or highway patrol’s motor carrier unit to determine if an adoption has occurred.
