St Patrick’s Day parade in London was a blinding success this year and attended by our haulier contractor, Denis Moriarty’s mixer trucks.
The Mayor for London, Sadiq Khan, was on hand and Nigel Bateman (RMX London Manager) and Dennis Moriarty had a very lengthy conversation with him. They mentioned how they appreciated the tough task he has trying to improve the safety on London’s roads for all.
Nigel continues: “The Mayor was very knowledgeable about FORS and mentioned how appreciative he was of companies like ours that have gone out and achieved Gold standard. The parade has been going now for a number of years and these mixers were the first mixer trucks ever to appear.
Moriarty Haulage was the first independent multi hauliers to approach CEMEX and working together they have achieved Gold standard. This really demonstrates Moriarty Haulage’s commitment to London and it is encouraging that CEMEX’s leadership is extending the message across London.
Whilst the parade was about celebration, one thing that was apparent with all the hauliers from across many different operations was how CEMEX are held in high regard for the commitment they show to safety, and we are seen as one of the leaders in this field.
People like Julie Welch and Paul Clarke (both Health & Safety Managers) should not underestimate how well known they are for the work they do as their names were mentioned countless times. Next year working with Moriarty Haulage we have booked a CEMEX truck to be in the parade. I’m not sure if we can turn a mixer green or not!”
