Before Christmas CEMEX UK and CAPE contractors received substantial fines at the hearing into the tragic death of John Altoft, a contractor who was working at the Rugby plant during the 2012 shutdown.
Since the incident we have worked closely with the Health & Safety Executive to develop netting and airbag solutions to prevent this kind of accident ever happening again.
We once again extend our profound sympathy to the family and friends of John Altoft. It is of deep regret and sadness that the incident occurred despite strict health and safety procedures that were in place for both contractors and employees at our Rugby cement plant. This is a sobering reminder to us all of the importance of safety.
