Posted: Thursday 1st December 2016

Lhoist, the world leading producer of lime-based products, has recently won the John Crabbe Trophy, the top industry prize for Outstanding Excellence in Health & Safety at the annual Mineral Products Association Health & Safety awards in London.

This is in recognition that health and well-being is very clearly embedded in the business's core values with a whole series of physical and psychological initiatives, including the introduction of a Zero Harm Behaviours Framework programme and industry peer reviews.

Cedric de Vicq, Vice President and Managing Director, Lhoist Western Europe commented, "I am extremely proud of the hard work and commitment from all the employees and contractors associated with Lhoist in the UK.

"This effort has directly led to an improvement in Health & Safety performance and the operations have become a benchmark for other plants overseas.'

Andy Jackson, Industrial Director added, "It is fantastic to be recognised by colleagues from elsewhere in the industry and represents the culmination of several years of work and application across our four UK plants.

"However, we do not wish to be complacent and will commit to further improvement by keeping the safety effort relevant, fresh, and valuable,' concluded Andy.
