Cemex celebrated the end of 2013 with a zero-accident rate in its 65 Spanish work sites. The company attributes the success to its “Zero Accident” campaign, started in 2007. In some works, new records were set in terms of days without accidents.

For instance, the cement works of Buñol in Valencia registered not a single accident since May 2010. "All the effort we have been making for years with awareness campaigns, training through visits involving safety, risk warnings cards, etc ... has had its reward,” says the company’s health and safety director, Javier Mota.

“We have shown through this achievement that a zero accident rate is possible and replicable over time," he added.
