Nelson Ready Mix receives top award

The award recognizes Nelson’s efforts to achieve the best five-year safety record with no lost time accidents.

Tony Maida, operations manager of Nelson Ready-Mix, and members of the Nelson Ready Mix team gathered last Tuesday to celebrate the Performance Award the company received from the BC Ready Mix Concrete Association for achieving the best five-year safety record in the industry from 2007 through 2012.

The award, co-sponsored by the BC Ready Mix Concrete Association (BCRMCA) and the BC Construction Safety Alliance (BCCSA), was presented to Orlando Dias at the BCRMCA’s Annual General Meeting and Convention in Nanaimo this past weekend. The award recognizes Nelson’s efforts to achieve the best five-year safety record with no lost time accidents.

“Our whole Nelson Ready Mix team is pleased and proud of this achievement. It is a result of our hard work and continuous focus on implementing and improving our safe work practices at all times and everywhere in our operation,” said Maida.

“Safety is always our top priority — for everyone on our team — as we pursue our goal of zero accidents. Since 2005, NRM has worked over 208,000 hours without a lost time accident.”

The awards, in their seventh year, were established by BCRMCA and the BC Construction Safety Alliance (originally the Construction Safety Network), to recognize leaders in the industry and encourage all members to promote excellence in safety practices, procedures, behaviours and attitudes.
