Lafarge Canada Whitefish River Terminal has won the Canadian 2009 terminal safety award. The award recognizes Portland cement distribution terminals with the best safety records in North America.
Performance records of more than 230 terminals in Canada and in the United States were reviewed, and 10 received awards for the best accident performance records. Canadian terminals were evaluated on the entire range of employee hours.
“This award is proof that everyone at Lafarge Whitefish River Terminal has been contributing to an accident-free environment by continuously improving health and safety conditions”, said Michael McSweeney, President and CEO of the Cement Association of Canada. “This award is also proof that high standards that promote safety and health protections throughout the year have been set at the terminal.”
The Cement Industry Energy & Environmental Awards is open to any cement manufacturing plant in North America. Judges for the award represent independent groups such as National ready Mix Concrete Association, US EPA-ENERGY STR, U.S. EPA Office of Policy, Economics and Innovation, Cement Association of Canada, Cement Americas magazine, U.S. Geological Survey, World Resources Institute and the World Wildlife Fund. The awards program was created in 2000 by the Portland Cement Association as part of its renewed environment and energy strategic plan for the cement industry.
