Votorantim Cimentos in Spain recently received the Spain Xcellens award in recognition for our safety policy. The award, granted by ASPY, recognizes the work of companies seeking excellence in risk prevention, beyond compliance with legal obligations.
During the awards ceremony, Alberto Carrillo, Safety Director in Spain, reinforced the message that "for Votorantim Cimentos, security is not a priority, it is a value" and also said that "whereas prior to the arrival of the Brazilian group we had only tools and procedures, we now have a strategy."
Among the initiatives that earned Votorantim Cimentos this award are the daily meetings with all of the teams on each shift to talk about safety, and the belief that when it comes to accidents zero is the only number that counts.
Jorge Wagner, Spain CEO also attended the awards ceremony, held in Madrid on 28Th April.
