The American Concrete Pumping Association (ACPA) created a new video called Day in the Life of a Concrete Pump Operator to support the ACPA Workforce Development program.
“Our new Day in the Life video will enhance our recruiting efforts by giving viewers a visual representation of real-world pumping experiences,” says ACPA Executive Director Christi Collins. "ACPA members will be able to share the video with pump operator candidates to give them an idea of what operating a pump is really like. It will be a great way to attract potential job seekers who are interested in a concrete pumping career but aren't sure, because they may have no experience with the field."
The video, available in both English and Spanish language versions, has an intended audience of ready mix drivers, laborers, those already in construction who may want to change fields, or those who are aware of concrete pumping and are wondering what that career path might be like.
The 10-minute video is available on the ACPA YouTube channel at. It follows a pump operator from the time he begins his work day to the time he finishes his work day. The video follows his responsibilities on the job, from clocking in at the start of the day, to getting his paperwork, working with contractors and cleaning out the pump, returning the pump, finishing inspection and clocking out.
Day in the Life will be available for members to customize with their own company logo, branding, contact and other company information. The video will be available on ACPA social media sites and will be sharable, with the goal of reaching as many people across the industry as possible.
The video is the latest effort by ACPA’s Workforce Development program, which is creating and sharing new initiatives and resources to help ACPA members effectively recruit job candidates. By utilizing the latest technology and strategic partnerships along with creating shareable, informative content, the ACPA is helping increase recruitment in the concrete pumping industry.
