Cemex USA showed it is helping set the standard inside global Cemex by winning three Cemex Health and Safety Awards this year, highlighting safety and innovation.
The West Logistics Region, which covers five states, including California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon and Washington, earned first place in the Most Improved category for terminal operations. The West Region has developed several safety innovations that have been implemented in the terminals, including new safety racks and procedures for incoming trucks.
“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 United States want to make their work sites safer for themselves and for their colleagues, while still providing the best service to our customers.”
Judges also recognized Cemex USA for its contractor site safety education initiatives. The program focuses on contractor hauling safety on the scales and helps contractors be more alert when at Cemex sites. Cemex USA’s initiative was one of 10 worldwide to receive the award.
Safety is a priority for Cemex USA employees, but so is their health. The human resources department developed a health and wellness microsite to give employees information to help improve their health. The site was awarded as one of the best Health Initiatives inside Cemex.
The Cemex Health and Safety Awards are handed out annually. Judges from inside Cemex examine the entries from different regions of the global company.
