CEMEX USA has been recognized by the Texas Aggregates & Concrete Association (TACA), earning awards for outstanding safety performance at eight of its operations across the Lone Star State.
Each year, operations from across Texas submit their safety performance records to TACA, and they are reviewed, comparing total employee hours worked and safety incidents based on Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) standards.
“At CEMEX, safety is our top priority, and we encourage our employees to take the extra time to identify and mitigate potential hazards to help ensure the safety of themselves and one another,” said Scott Ducoff, CEMEX USA regional president – Texas Region. “Like TACA, CEMEX has a long commitment to safety, and we are proud of our operations for their exemplary efforts.”
In the Aggregates Division 5A (over 200,000 hours), first place went to CEMEX’s Balcones Quarry, New Braunfels, Texas. CEMEX also won awards in the Vehicle Shop Maintenance, Plant Facility Maintenance and Ready Mix divisions.
The award-winning operations received plaques commemorating their achievements during a ceremony at the TACA 67th Annual Meeting on June 18 in San Antonio.
