Health & Safety

For LafargeHolcim, being the most advanced company in the building materials industry means setting new health and safety standards. Health and safety is at the center of everything we do, from the daily routines in our plants to our customers’ project worksites and our actions in our neighboring communities. Our aspiration is to conduct our business with zero harm to people and to create a healthy and safe environment for our employees, contractors, communities, and customers. This is how we intend to make a difference in the way we work, in our business and communities.

Health and Safety, the overarching value for LafargeHolcim

At LafargeHolcim, we want to do more than prevent accidents: we want to conduct our business with a goal of zero harm.

To realize this aspiration, we are committed to:

  • Creating a healthy and safe environment for all stakeholders (employees, contractors, communities, and customers) based on a true safety culture.
  • Maintaining a global Health and Safety Management System designed to continuously improve our performance and actively manage risk in our business.
  • Targeting operational discipline by instilling a mindset of safe execution and follow-up.
  • Communicating openly with all stakeholders on relevant health and safety issues.

Health & safety is embedded in LafargeHolcim’s operations

At LafargeHolcim, we believe that “if we’re good in safety, then we’re good in business”. Health and safety is a critical success factor for our operational performance and not something we regard as a separate activity.

This is why it is seen as a core competency at all levels of LafargeHolcim’s organization, from site operators to top managers, and as a key component of successful personal performance.
