Inland Concrete holds barbecue, safety information session

Blindspot demonstration raises awareness

Over 60 people attended a barbecue and safety information session at Inland Concrete in Ponoka on June 28.

Inland Concrete had set up cut outs in the yard of people – kids, teenagers, adults and a car.

People were then given the chance to sit in the driver’s seat of a cement truck that is regularly used in day-to-day operations.

When asked what they could see, even with all the mirrors on the truck, they could not see any of the cut outs.

Leonard Davis, operations supervisor of Inland Concrete Ponoka, commented this was part of the company’s “safe work/healthy life” program. Davis hoped this demonstration would help people realize how important it is to be seen by truck drivers thus preventing a tragic accident.
