As an appreciation of Malino’s caring for others, and his positive attitude which demonstrates that Health & Safety is his number one value and priority, Global Health and Safety Director Richard Claydon presented Malino with a Health and Safety Ambassador Award on behalf of the Executive Committee.
Richard also hand delivered a letter from our CEO Fernando Gonzalez to thank Malino for his actions and for leading by example.
Malino’s Health and Safety Ambassador Award is the first one of its kind but CEMEX intends to make the same recognition for other people who also demonstrate ‘going the extra mile’ and living our CEMEX values, in the future.
Richard commented: “We are very proud of Malino, whose thoughtful and considerate attitude is a credit to both himself and to CEMEX. Our employees and contractors are the representatives of our values that people see on a daily basis, and the positive reaction to Malino’s actions demonstrates the impact this can have on the way people view our commitment to Health and Safety, which of course is at the highest level.”
The presentation was made at the Oldbury Concrete Plant office, with Malino’s colleagues and members of the local management team in attendance, including Lex Russell, Managing Director UK for Materials North.
Lex added: “Health and Safety is visible in many forms in CEMEX, but Malino has demonstrated that it is at its most effective when it comes from our heart. We’d encourage all employees to look out for those around them – not just the people they work with but those in the local area and at other businesses. Ensuring the safety of those we come in to contact with is our most important priority, all day, every day.”
