Safety at work is an essential value within the Group sustainability culture. We strive to protect and promote Health as a fundamental objective.

Our culture

We firmly believe in safety as a core value. Safety begins with workers and is then focused back on them as the ultimate goal of the overall risk mitigation and management improvement actions is put in place, through their involvement and participation.

We believe that injuries and work-related illnesses can be prevented. In achieving our goal of “zero harm” the main attitude required to our managers is leadership through a visible and exemplary behavior, proactive commitment and employee involvement.

What Health and Safety is for us

H&S Management system

The implementation and maintenance of effective and efficient management systems for accident prevention is one of the key health and safety objectives at Group level. During 2020, all certified cement production plants completed the migration process to the ISO 45001 standard and were found to be in full compliance with the standard.

At the end of 2020, certified cement plants accounted for 73% of the total. The Group plans to certify all cement plants by 2022.

How we work in accident prevention

  • Each plant is subject to periodic internal controls aimed at highlighting and correcting any risk factor, defining corrective plans, technical and managerial solutions on any equipment, plant, workplace as well as operating and behavioral methods. The resulting actions are thoroughly analyzed during periodic safety meetings.
  • Scheduled maintenance is coordinated so as to maintain productivity, reliability and safety over time.
  • We invest in safety devices (both individual and factory) and in machinery to maintain a high technological standard.
  • Perform internal audits through Cementir Internal Audit function.
  • We offer specialized training, carried out in the classroom and through on-the-job coaching and where appropriate with external training bodies for the prevention of identified workplace risks and technical skills for the correct use of campaign machinery and the empowerment of all employees.
  • Improvement and prevention plans: we strive for continuous improvement of the occupational health and safety management system by defining measurable indicators monitored according to pre-established implementation plans.
