Health & Safety

Care for the well being of our employees has always been a main priority of the TITAN Group’s strategy and directs our social policy.

However, today apart from our employees there is a significant number of indirect employees providing either on permanent or on a temporarily basis services to Usje through contractors.
 
Cementarnica USJE AD recognizes that Health & Safety is an integral part of its business performance. We ensure implementation of legal requirements and corporate policy aimed at providing a health and secure working environment to all employees in our plant.

We understand that successful Health & Safety Management involves integrating sound principles and practice into our day-to-day management arrangements and the good performance levels are achieved by the collaborative effort of all employees.

Usje’s approach to reducing occupational hazards is a continuous joint effort of its management and its employees. We adopt this systematic approach to Health & Safety in order to achieve continual performance improvement.

Having placed Health & Safety at work as first priority for the well-being of all employees within the TITAN Group, it becomes apparent that all of Usje’s efforts in response to our values and commitments is to safeguard the best working environment for both direct and indirect employees with the aim to achieve a “zero accident” performance in all our operations.

Our Health & Safety Policy and Vision is to achieve a healthy working environment free of incidents, injuries and accidents.

We benchmark our Group Health & Safety performance against the Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) members and aim to be by 2010 in the top quartile of the peer group’s safety performance.
