Haulier Health and Safety Leadership Days

In the UK CEMEX works with over 500 subcontract hauliers to help our own fleet in delivering aggregates and asphalt to our customers.  Ensuring we work with hauliers that have a commitment to improving Health & Safety performance and standards is of the utmost importance.

Each year our 3 Commercial Haulage Capacity Managers (Ronnie Simpson, Mark Fennell and Callum McPhillips) host Haulier Health & Safety Leadership Days in order to engage our subcontract hauliers on Health & Safety issues, industry developments and sharing best practice. During 2015 we saw a record turnout at the 5 events held at Uddingston, Stockton, Preston Brook, Rugby and Thorpe. The events saw the attendance of 50 of our subcontract hauliers who are responsible for safely delivering over 5 million tonnes, or 58%, of our subcontractor volume between them!

Topics covered included Safety Alerts, Vulnerable Road Users, CLOCS & FORS, Step In and Driver Health – we even managed to get the Mercedes Econic to the Rugby event for our hauliers to get a close up view.

In 2016 the events will be even bigger and better with plans in place to host 7 events across the country to enable us to engage even more hauliers on the journey to Zero injuries.
