The California Construction & Industrial Materials Association (CalCIMA) recognized Lehigh Hanson and Santa Fe Aggregates for their dedication to safety at the recent CalCIMA 2012 Education Conference.

Lehigh Hanson’s Carroll Canyon plant in San Diego was recognized in the Large Aggregate Mine category. According to CalCIMA, the plant is exceptional for motivating personnel, establishing a safety culture and serving as a testing ground for new safety programs.

Santa Fe Aggregates, meanwhile, was recognized in the Small Aggregate Mine category. The company’s plant in Waterford, Calif., was specifically honored. CalCIMA says the mine has created a caring, family atmosphere where employees can talk openly about safety.

Lehigh Hanson and Santa Fe Aggregates were selected, along with two other safety winners, from among 27 applications.

CalCIMA also named John Hecht, president of Sespe Consulting Inc., the winner of its Associate of the Year Award. The award recognizes someone for dedication to the association, commitment to membership and outstanding support for the industry.
