Ash Grove Cement Company’s Durkee plant in Oregon has won an internal award for excellence in safety.
Commenting on the win, Steve Minshall, Ash Grove corporate health and safety director, said: “Earning the Safety Excellence Award takes focussed effort, teamwork, accountability and truly valuing the well-being of every person in the plant, and we congratulate the Durkee employees on their achievement”.
The company’s plants in Durkee (OR), Leamington (UT), Midlothian (TX) as well as the Rivergate lime plant in Portland (OR) were recognised with one of the Ash Grove Safety Leadership gold awards. Louisville (NE) and Montana City (MT) plants each received silver.
