Holcim Brazil: Safety first

At our company in Brazil, all new employees, regardless of their role or level in the organization, are expected to complete a week-long "integration" program. The course content is heavily weighted toward occupational health and safety topics.

Ready-mix truck drivers have been identified as a high-risk group, so all new drivers employed undertake a further training period of between three and 10 days, during which they receive both theoretical and practical training under the guidance of experienced company drivers. The experienced drivers are rotated every six months and while they are on their training assignment, they are fully dedicated to the program.
