|Increased communication with contractors
|As a way to engage contractors with the safe practices of CEMEX, it was decided to forward the internal health and safety best practice alerts to them for their perusal. Contractors now benefit from the experiences of others working at CEMEX sites and are made aware of the incidents in the same way as CEMEX employees.
The intention of this process is to remove the traditional problem of a company and their contractors having different operating standards. Creating improved levels of health and safety understanding and awareness for contractors using the alerts has contributed to lowering the accident rate.
