TROUTVILLE, Va., Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Roanoke Cement Company's Winston-Salem and Castle Hayne terminal sites will be honored this month by the North Carolina Department of Labor (NCDOL). The Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) acknowledges businesses with exemplary safety and health programs that comply voluntarily with the applicable standards.
"I congratulate Roanoke Cement Company on achieving status in the SHARP program," said John R. Bogner, Jr., Consultative Services Bureau Chief, OSHA/NCDOL. "As a SHARP employer, you have corrected all workplace hazards identified by our consultants and have agreed to maintain an ongoing, effective workplace safety and health management system. We sincerely appreciate the efforts put forth by your company and its employees."
Both terminal sites were previously recognized by NCDOL for their exemplary safety performance and each has achieved gold safety status in North Carolina. Earlier this year, the Portland Cement Association awarded the Winston-Salem terminal site first place for safety in its category in the United States. Official ceremonies will be held later this month at each terminal by the NCDOL, whose representatives will present each Roanoke Cement terminal manager with a flag to be flown at their campus recognizing this achievement.
