CEMEX Logistics has won the new MORR Technology Trophy, awarded for the first time at this year’s prestigious Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards.
The MORR (Management of Occupational Road Risk) Technology Trophy was won by CEMEX Logistics highlighting the company’s commitment to the management of road risk for both its drivers and other road users.
CEMEX UK, considered one of the leading companies in its sector in addressing cyclist safety, has made further investment in innovative bespoke safety systems on its LGVs. 2012 saw trials of a range of camera systems on a number of vehicles with considerable driver involvement to review their suitability and assess their effectiveness. Trials will continue in 2013.
“It is an outstanding achievement to win this award and to be recognized for our work in this area. With a fleet of 300 cement and aggregates vehicles covering over 15 million miles per annum, we have significant work to do in managing the risk while our vehicles are on the road.
“CEMEX has a vision to be the best construction solutions partner and a key part of this is to ensure that we are the best with regard to health and safety, protecting our colleagues and the communities in which we operate. Our No. 1 priority is Zero Accidents,” says Andy Taylor, Health and Safety Director.
