Lafarge North America kicked off its 2012 Health & Safety Month. As part of its activities, it will recognize achievements and focus on building health and safety awareness through programs, demonstrations, on-site access to health and wellness professionals, field days, and community events that promote health and safety beyond the workplace.
“Health and safety is Lafarge’s top priority, and we are proud of our outstanding record of success in that area,” said John Stull, CEO, Lafarge U.S., in a company press release. “This annual event is a specific time where we can celebrate our successes and focus our energies on finding ways to continue improving our health and safety. We also want to take this opportunity to reinforce our commitment to the health and safety of our employees and contractors, as well as to their families and to the local communities where we operate.”
This year’s theme is Personal Risk Assessment, which involves employees taking the principle of the risk-based approach and adapting it to an individual situation. The objective is to reinforce the importance of every person knowing about risk, and doing a full risk assessment before beginning to work.
