Three Roanoke Cement Company (RCC) sites have achieved 11 years without a lost time accident: Castle Hayne, Richmond and Winston-Salem terminals. The Portland Cement Association, a national trade group located in Skokie, IL, has recently recognized RCC with a certificate commemorating the event.
"This is a special milestone in that for 11 years, no employee of these three terminals was injured or had to miss work," says Ronnie Collins, who has served as Business Unit Safety Manager for the Mid-Atlantic, Essex Cement and Separation Technologies for the past two years. "The milestone solidifies the commitment management and the employees have towards working safely."
Employees and guests from each location celebrated the accomplishment with a dinner party held in their respective regions. Festivities were held at The Oceanic Restaurant in Wrightsville Beach for the Castle Hayne employees; the Richmond terminal enjoyed dinner at the famous Tobacco Company and the Winston-Salem celebration was held at the Village Tavern.
"It’s a "can-do" attitude and enthusiasm on the job that makes achievements like these possible," says Ronnie. "It makes me proud to be associated with a team like this."
