Well done to everyone on a ZERO LTI week across our new CEMEX Western Europe Materials Region (which includes the UK, France and Spain) and across the whole of our European operations last week (including Central Materials Europe as well).
There were, however, two TRIs in the Central Material Europe region. The first one, a Readymix truck driver fell from the ladder of the truck to the ground when he was going down from the platform after cleaning the hopper. He slipped his hand when he was getting grip of the railing.
The other one was an incident in a Quarry while the employee was working at a water pipe above the truck loading area. The employee stumbled at his working place and fell to the ground, fortunately into a pile of sand. Both incidents are related to working at heights hazards. We need to improve safety measures to avoid or control the risk of working at heights, especially in our trucks. Where possible, we should eliminate the need to work on the top of trucks. If we need to access to the top of trucks the safest way is to use safe platforms. We are going to work across Europe to implement the best solution available.
