Roanoke Cement Co.’s Front Royal, Va., terminal was awarded Portland Cement Association’s 2013 Terminal Safety Award for 12.75 years without a lost time accident. PCA President Greg Scott presented the award at the terminal earlier this summer.
“This achievement represents the entire length of time the plant has been in operation,” said David Brinkley, director of customer resources and distribution for Titan America.
“We are very proud of Dwayne, Adam and the rest of Front Royal’s staff for this terrific accomplishment.”
The PCA Logistics Committee members consider factors such as accident prevention, accountability, safety and environmental innovations as criteria for judging. Front Royal’s other safety accomplishments include Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) certification by the Commonwealth of Virginia, implementation of a Hazard Tag Tracking program, an on-site driver-training program, and recognition by the EPA in the Energy Star Challenge for
In addition to the presentation of the PCA award in June, the terminal held a SHARP flag raising ceremony. The Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Labor and Industry honored the exemplary safety performance last August with certification in the program. Titan America/Roanoke Cement officials, as well as customers and local dignitaries, were on-hand to celebrate with the Front Royal staff.
