Cemex improves on safety record

Cemex improves on safety record
17 August 2007

Cemex UK celebrated an accident free year at its Rugby production plant last week. The producer hit 365 days without a reportable accident at the cement kiln as part of a long-term campaign to reduce accidents and injuries.

The latest total beats the plant’s previous 152 day record reached in 2005 and builds on the successful campaigns at its Kensworth quarry, near Dunstable, and the Southam and Lodge Farm centres in Rugby, which have remained injury free for eight and three years.

A Cemex spokeswoman said: "While the records are good news, we are focused on reaching the next milestone of no lost time due to injuries for the remainder of 2007."
