Here are all the great nominees for this month. Thank you to you all for putting in the great effort for CEMEX this January – we seem to have a lot of drivers nominated this month so a particular thank you to our driver community for their fantastic efforts.
Special mention also to Maurice Burrell, Quarry Manager, who got two nominations!!
- Maurice Burrell – Quarry Manager, Chris Makepeace – Weighbridge Operator, Tony Tallentire – Shovel Driver. All three agreed to give up their weekends when we needed emergency supply of 2,500 tonnes of materials to Construction Marine for a landslip near Hexham.
- Andy Ralph – Relief Plant Supervisor and Marcus Bedford – Fitter both for RMX Northern. Who both decided off their own back to stay on late after a full day’s shift to fix an issue with the Leeds Plant. They didn’t leave site until gone 8 pm.
- Alan Jones, Mark Renshaw, Martin Robinson, Glynn Courtney, Garry Blakeston and Roger Taylor – Plant and Ops staff for Readymix Northern. Each of the above took it upon themselves to go into their respective Plants over the Festive period to check the Plants were all ok and not flooded. This meant we could start up again in the New Year without any delays or problems.
- Terry Howell – IHC, Readymix Northern. Terry’s quick reactions stopped a potential accident on site when a customer’s employee was walking with a hoodie up and a woolly hat, carrying an object towards a reversing dumper. Terry quickly shouted to the pedestrian, stopping him from walking in front of the dumper.
- Keith Newton – LGV Driver, Logistics Cement, South Ferriby. Thursday 7th January Keith had left home for the day. Shortly after hearing of an amber alert flood warning for South Ferriby Keith called into the office to offer to come back into work to provide support which included calling drivers and coordinating to taking driver’s cars up to higher ground and collecting drivers from vendors in time before high tide.
- Pat Newton – Driver, Logistics Aggregates South West. Recently the Site Manager at Carbon8 Aggs in Avonmouth commented that Pat’s attitude and the image he projected of CEMEX was exceptional. It was noticed that Pat’s truck was always very clean and that Pat was well presented in his full CEMEX PPE. The Site Manager also commented that he set a very good example and wished that all Drivers would follow his lead!
- Kevin Tucker – LGV Driver. Who helped rescue a runaway horse and the young rider who had been injured in a fall. Kevin used his truck to block the field entrance so the horse was contained – he also helped the rider get aid.
- Maurice Burrell, John Donnison, Ryan Bradley and Mick Allinson – Aggs. Maurice and the Team cut their Christmas holidays short to supply the Environment Agency with dumpy bags on Dec 28th. The Team drove to Catterick to start work not knowing how much was needed. They ended up supplying two artic loads.
