UK: Lafarge UK is celebrating the achievement of one of its UK cement production sites, which has reached the milestone of 10 years without a lost-time injury (LTI). Workers at the Cookstown Works in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, have not suffered any injury that prevents an employee or contractor returning to work the next day since 2002.

Thanks to a strong team commitment to safety, the achievement has put Cookstown Works in the Lafarge Group's record books. Of the company's 170 cement production sites across the world, this is the longest any site has gone without a LTI.

Commenting on the major achievement, Cookstown Works manager William McGuckne said, "This is a proud moment for the team. Through continued hard work and constant vigilance on safety in all aspects of our operation, we have managed to maintain our safety performance and achieve this fantastic record. A culture of assessing risks, proceeding with care and looking out for each other has helped us contribute to the Lafarge Group's ultimate goal of zero harm to any of our employees or contractors."

Lafarge UK president Dyfrig James added, "My congratulations go to the whole Cookstown Works team of employees and contractors for achieving this world first for Lafarge's cement business."
