Cemex USA recognised for health and safety
Published by Rebecca Bowden,
Cemex USA has won three Cemex Health and Safety Awards this year, highlighting its safety and innovation.
The West Logistics Region covers five states, including California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon and Washington, and earned first place in the Most Improved category for terminal operators. The West Region has developed several safety innovations, including new safety racks and procedures for incoming trucks, which have been implemented in its terminals.
Cemex USA was also recognised for its contractor site safety initiatives. The programme focuses on contractor hauling safety on the scales, and helps contractors to be more alert when onsite. The initiative was one of ten worldwide to receive the award.
“We focus on the health and safety of CEMEX employees every day to live up to our Zero4Life commitment,” said CEMEX USA President Ignacio Madridejos. “These awards show how employees all over the US want to make their work sites safer for themselves and for their colleagues, while still providing the best service to our customers.”
Additionally, the human resources department has developed a health and wellness microsite to give employees information to improve their health. The site was awarded as one of the best Health initiatives inside Cemex.
