Your Health & Safety is our number one priority, with ZERO Harm invariably our main goal. Over the years we have made huge strides in our workplace safety and I am proud of all our employees and contractors for their contribution to this important effort.
However, according to statistics, more accidents happen at home than anywhere else, including the workplace. According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA), as many as one in five accidents occur in our homes. We cannot engage in safety only at work and ignore it at home! I would like to encourage you and all CEMEX employees to pay more attention to the Health & Safety of our families and loved ones, keeping them safe in their own homes and daily environment; particularly those who are most vulnerable – children and the elderly.
Following on from supporting RoSPA Family Safety Week in April, we have developed a CEMEX Health&Safety@Home campaign. From now up until December we will be launching custom-made materials to raise awareness of the different dangers in the home so that accidents can be avoided I am confident that the CEMEX Health&Safety@Home campaign will help bring attention to the most common home hazards, and in turn, will help us keep our families safe.
