|Cluster group committee and hazard alert cards
|CEMEX’s aggregate, concrete and mortar sites in the South East have been participating in health and safety committee meetings for some years. The cluster group approach allows experiences to be shared across a number of sites, which is particularly beneficial for lone person operations.
One of the most effective ideas developed by the committee is for hazard alert cards, which include ‘near hits’. Ideas for these are raised in meetings and then entered into a central database, as well as being displayed on site notice-boards. Employees who submit a particularly high quality hazard alert card, which includes an effective solution to the problem, receive gift vouchers as a reward.
