Safety first: Putzmeister conducts trainings for concrete pump operators in collaboration with IESC


Based out of their factory in Goa, Putzmeister has been churning out top notch quality Concrete Equipment that have been specially innovated and designed for the rough conditions presiding in India.


Operators benefit from being trained

Safety comes first when working with Putzmeister, great care is taken to ensure that everyone working in and around the machines is skilled to prevent accidents and untoward incidents.


A well trained operator is able to use the machine more effectively which requires less maintenance or servicing. This way the operators can save time and money plus have more fun working as he can develop a good teamwork with the machine!


Putzmeister Concrete Machines conducts courses for “Recognition of Prior Learning” (RPL) where concrete pump operators are trained and assessed to work with the machines. RPL is a part of PradhanMantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) an initiative by the Infrastructure and Equipment Skill Council (IESC) and Skill India.


Putzmeister aims to conduct more RPL trainings for concrete pump operators as they lead to significant advantages – for the operators as well as for Putzmeister.


The first batch has successfully completed the RPL course in December 2016: Nine candidates underwent four days of mandatory training in Mumbai. The training topics included comprehensive operation, maintenance and safety of Putzmeister’s BSA Stationary Concrete Pumps.


The final assessment consists of a questionnaire in English, One-on-one tests and a practical demo on the machines. In the end, the candidates receive an official certificate authorised by Putzmeister.
