Cemex UK takes top safety award

Cemex UK has been awarded the highest industry Health and Safety Award, at the 2015 Mineral Products Association Health and Safety Awards, for its outstanding excellence in the area.

Cemex UK Country President, Jesus Gonzalez, and health and safety director, Andrew Taylor, received the trophy at the conference and awards held in London.

The judges said Cemex UK excelled in four key areas: Leadership training with Visible Felt Leadership targets for all managers, health and wellbeing embedded as a core value, “Stepping in” to prevent unsafe behaviour is part of the company’s culture at all levels and strong management of contractors.

Jesus Gonzalez, country president Cemex UK emphasised that “Health and Safety is our No 1 priority for colleagues, contractors and those coming onto Cemex sites.

“I am delighted that our industry and the independent judges are rewarding and recognising the outstanding work we are doing to ensure everyone comes home safe at the end of the working day. Safety has no memory so safe practices have to be in both our heads and our hearts, and a part of our DNA.”

This is the second time in three years that Cemex UK has been awarded the John Crabbe Trophy.

The company was also presented with the Blue Circle Trophy in the Transport Category and the BACMI Trophy for Contractor’s Safety.
