It is with great pleasure that the Educational Activities Committee announces that the 2013 Innovation in Training Award is awarded to CEMEX's "JOB-Safe." Middle Tennessee State University’s Concrete Industry Management faculty judged the entries for the committee; CIM Program Director Heather Brown, Ph.D., noted, "All of the submittals were top notch."

The judges wrote about the winner’s entry, "JOB-Safe was created from a driver’s idea and the company believed and supported him to share his message of job site safety for drivers and ultimately the contractor and community. A checklist and brochure was created to send to the construction site prior to the truck arriving. This would ensure all possible hazards would be avoided on the day of the pour. This brochure and concept can be replicated industry wide and it is truly innovative. Congratulations to Lance Morgan – the driver who was inspired to think outside the box – and the entire CEMEX team."

The award will be presented at NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks awards luncheon, Monday, September 23, just outside Las Vegas at the Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa. As the winning entry, "JOB Safe" will also be featured in an upcoming edition of NRMCA’s Concrete InFocus quarterly magazine.
