UK Readymix Wins Safety Sword
Congratulations to the UK Readymix team, which has been named as this year’s winner of the coveted Safety Sword. This long-standing prestigious CEMEX UK safety trophy is awarded annually to the best performing team. The UK Readymix team faced some tough competition from across the business, with the Supply Chain – Rail, Marine and UK Asphalt teams also reaching the final.
Carl Platt, Chair of the UK Health & Safety Committee, said: “Well done to the UK Readymix team for their fantastic achievement. They have worked very hard to demonstrate great safety leadership and collaboration between colleagues, all with the mindset of continuous improvement and striving for Zero harm.
It is great to see so many teams across the business really committing to keeping their colleagues, contractors and other site visitors safe. We are very proud of UK Readymix, and all the finalists, for all they have done to make Health & Safety their number one priority despite the increased pressures presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
