Five California operations recognized for excellence in safety
The California Construction and Industrial Materials Association (CalCIMA) awarded with the association’s 2013 CalCIMA Excellence in Safety Awards.
CalCIMA President and CEO Gary Hambly says the awards recognize mines and plants that make an effort to improve workplace safety.
“They recognize the team effort from workers, supervisors, and management to allow for innovations, processes, and communication to improve workplace safety,” he says.
The awards have have several categories for aggregate, ready mixed concrete, and industrial minerals plants and personnel. Winners of the 2013 awards were selected in five categories:
Cement Plant – TXI Riverside Cement’s Crestmore Quarry and Plant in Riverside County
Ready Mixed Concrete Plant – Lehigh Hanson’s Paso Robles Ready Mixed Concrete Plant in San Luis Obispo County
Industrial Mineral Plant – Lhoist North America’s Natividad Plant in Monterrey County
Small Aggregate Plant (fewer than 20 employees) – Calaveras Materials Inc.’s Merced Aggregate Mine in Merced County
Large Aggregate Mine – Lehigh Hanson’s Irwindale Rock Plant in Los Angeles County
Mike Herges, Graniterock safety and health services manager and co-chair of the CalCIMA Safety and Health Committee, says the awards recognize operations for making permanent changes that improve safety.
“The CalCIMA Excellence in Safety Award is unique in that it goes beyond numbers and seeks to find changes in culture, engineering, and procedures to learn where mines and plants are adapting and changing to improve safety,” he says.
CalCIMA also recently recognized six of its members for making contributions this year. Read about those awards here.
