Apr, 24 2012
(Texas) -- The Portland Cement Association has recognized the Alamo Cement Co. plant in San Antonio for having an outstanding safety record.
The plant received the Chairman’s Safety Performance Award at the association’s spring meeting in Chicago on April 16.
The association honored plants in three categories, broken down by the number of hours employees worked collectively in 2011. The San Antonio plant qualified under the “More than 256,001 employee hours” division.
“Working to continuously improve their workplace, employees at the Alamo Cement Company plant set a standard for safety excellence that promotes safety and health protections throughout the year,” says PCA President and CEO Brian McCarthy.
The Skokie, Ill.-based association analyzed the records of 111 cement plants in the United States and Canada to determine which ones had the best safety records. None of these plants had an accident rate above one and several plants had no accidents in 2011.
