ESSENTIAL RULES IN CEMENT PLANTS

Studies show that the vast majority of incidents, injuries or accidents in the workplace are related to failure to observe important rules relating to health & safety.

It is for this reason that we do not just lay down a set of rules, but also require all employees to follow safe work practices, to comply with safety rules and regulations and to work in a way that meets the high standards we have set.
