Cemex USA started the new year by reaffirming its safety goal of Zero4Life during Safety Week 2022, the company’s annual initiative to focus employees on health and safety.

Safety Week 2022 included safety activities and messages delivered to employees aimed at refocusing them on safety in the new year. Throughout the week, employees participated in exercises that encouraged them to use important safety tools such as hazard recognition, hazard control and risk assessment, while emphasizing accountability aimed at preventing unsafe behavior.

“Safety is a team effort and, at Cemex, we encourage our employees to contribute and build on our strong safety culture by looking for opportunities to improve our health and safety for everyone each day,” says Jamie Muguiro, Cemex USA president. “We strive to work together and utilize our company’s health and safety management system tools to identify and mitigate hazards so we all can go home safe to our families every day.”

During Safety Week, employees across Cemex operations were encouraged to reflect on their safety performance in 2021, examine their actions and seek opportunities to improve. They were also encouraged to use Cemex safety tools such as Take 5 assessments, which ask employees to stop, think and act when approaching jobsites.

Meetings throughout the event focused on strengthening a culture of personal accountability to identify and prevent unsafe behaviors.

“Our employees are empowered to take action when it comes to safety, and they are encouraged to follow these well-established tools and guidelines in an ongoing effort to create an injury-free workplace,” says Alan MacVicar, Cemex’s vice president of health and safety. “Safety is a core value at Cemex and we expect each of our employees to become safety leaders and hold each other accountable to prevent injuries and create a sustainable, injury-free environment.”

Cemex USA has hosted Safety Week each January since 2016 to promote a renewed commitment to safety throughout the new year.
