Lhoist pick up top Health and Safety Award

John Crabbe Memorial Trophy winners Lhoist UK

Company scoops prestigious John Crabbe Memorial Trophy in MPA Health and Safety Awards

LHOIST, the world-leading producers of lime-based products, have won the John Crabbe Memorial Trophy, the top industry prize for Outstanding Excellence in Health & Safety at the Mineral Products Association’s recent annual Health and Safety Awards in London.

The award was in recognition of the fact 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 (centre of photo), vice-president and managing director of Lhoist Western Europe, said: ‘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 and safety performance and the operations have become a benchmark for other plants overseas.’

Industrial director Andy Jackson (right of photo) added: ‘It is fantastic to be recognized by colleagues from elsewhere in the industry. This 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.’
