PCA is proud of its member companies’ commitment to safety and excited to celebrate Safety Month throughout June. Safety is a core value and we look forward to engaging with our members and hosting webinars, providing safety materials, collaborating with other construction materials associations, and staying active on social media. Help spread the message about health and safety by using the resources below and we hope you’ll join for all our events throughout June.


CEO Safety Roundtable

Tuesday, June 1
2:00 p.m. EST to 3:00 p.m. EST

While everyone is responsible for health and safety, leadership at the CEO level plays a significant role in a company’s safety culture. Come learn from PCA member company leaders about their views on safety and health in the cement industry. Moderated by Mike Ireland, the roundtable will offer insights from these industry leaders on the role of leadership and management in safety, building and maintaining a safety culture, how to continually improve health and safety, what challenges they foresee, the role of technology and more. We hope you can join us to hear from these industry leaders and celebrate safety month. 

Panelists Include:

  • Allen Hamblen, President and CEO, CalPortland Company
