HOUSTON, TX — Cementos Mexicanos or CEMEX in the United States was recently acknowledged by the Texas Aggregates and Concrete Association or TACA, earning awards for outstanding safety performance at eight of its operations across the State of Texas.
Every year, operations from across Texas propose their safety performance records to TACA, and they are assessed, comparing the total number of employee hours worked and safety incidents based on Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) standards.
"At CEMEX, safety is our top priority, and we encourage our employees to take the extra time to identify and mitigate potential hazards to help ensure the safety of themselves and one another. Like TACA, CEMEX has a long commitment to safety, and we are proud of our operations for their exemplary efforts,” said Scott Ducoff, CEMEX USA Regional President in the Texas Region.
The award-winning operations obtained plaques commemorating their accomplishments throughout a ceremony at the TACA 67th Annual Meeting on June 18 in San Antonio, Texas. The CEMEX USA operations that earned the awards are Aggregates, Vehicle Shop Maintenance, Plant Facility Maintenance and Ready Mix.
