Getting down to business – safely

As the Covid-19 vaccination is rolled out worldwide, we’re confident that we can continue to look after the Health and Safety of our employees, contractors, visitors and customers.


We look forward to a time when we can relax the measures that apply uniquely to COVID-19. Until that time we will continue doing all we can to remain healthy and safe.

Health & Safety: our core value

Heath & Safety has been a core value of Holcim since the company was founded. We have built a robust set of tools and frameworks to ensure these are not just words. We live up to this value every day. Our tools are flexible and can be extended to our current situation.


Targeting our guidance: operations, offices and customer sites

No matter where we operate, we have robust protocols and procedures in place. Our governance structure allows us to monitor compliance and training to ensure all our sites are compliant and set up to successfully implement safe and healthy operations -- on our sites, on the road and on our customer sites.


Leveraging good practices

We are also fortunate that, at many operational sites, it’s fairly easy to apply social distancing measures. The average aggregate site or cement plant offers a lot of space per person. Our local teams implement measures that are appropriate to their sites and needs, and they are shared with other teams across the world.
