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, starting with workers and returning to workers as the final objective of our actions, 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

Our main plants have adopted an occupational health and safety management system certified by ISO 45001 or OHSAS 18001 international standards awarded by accredited external parties. We have also defined that all operating companies involved in cement production, concrete production and waste management have to operate with a certified health and safety management system (i.e. ISO 45001). As of 2019, 55% of all operating companies are certified ISO 45001 or OHSAS 18001. The goal set by the Group is to reach 80% coverage by 2025 and 100% by 2030.

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.
