Driving is the activity that leads to the majority of fatalities in our industry. In addition, approximately 60 percent of all fatalities in the CSI database are related to contractor activities.
At CEMEX, we believe that greater industry collaboration on driving- and contractor-safety initiatives that address the causes of these fatalities is necessary to prevent additional loss of life. That is why we led the Driving Safety Working Group in developing consistent, industry-wide practices for reporting safety performance and evaluating progress in reducing incidents and injuries over time.
The CSI document, entitled Recommended Good Practice for Driving Safety, outlines practices for drivers, their managers, and transport management contractors. A similarly titled document, Recommended Good Practice for Contractor Safety, outlines safety practices for both contractors and subcontractors.
