CEMEX safety roadshows
ARTICLE
Following the success of the CEMEX Safety Leadership workshops held over 2005, it was decided to introduce safety roadshows and take them out to several sites to help spread the safety messages that CEMEX is advocating.

The initial safety workshops had been conducted in a ‘classroom’ setting but was so successful that the practice of engaging the workforce with safety issues has been taken out on the road.

Held onsite, where the employees are in their natural environment, workers can benefit from advice and presentations on such things as:

-transport
-manual handling issues
-taking care of yourself on site
-confined space issues.

The benefits that have been gained so far include:

-The workshops and roadshows combined have achieved over 4,600 hours of training whilst being able to maintain ‘business as usual’ because workers do not have to leave their sites.
-The scheme has counted towards employees’ continuous personal development records.
-The roadshows have promoted a positive safety culture.
-Incident rates have been reduced.

This entry was highly commended.
