The safety, health, and well-being of our people are of paramount importance to us and we continually monitor our safety progress to ensure our programs are working as effectively as possible.
At Saman Cement, safety is our first business priority. We are committed to making Saman Cement a safe workplace and to supporting all aspects of the health and well – being of our employees, contractors, and third parties.
1- Zero Accident Objective :
We believe it is wrong to accept injuries and occupational illnesses. We believe injuries and illnesses are not an inevitable or expected consequence of doing business and we are committed to eliminating these tragic events. It is the right thing to do and a business imperative. We call our commitment Zero Accident objective.
Saman Cement has a target of zero injuries and does not accept unsafe working practices. Accident prevention, safeguarding employee health and environmental protection are an integral part of Saman Cement's business philosophy.
2- Programs and Safety Training :
a. On-job safety training :
Continuous training is one of the most important procedures to prevent accidents. Safety training is directed toward all employees and contractors in all areas. The objective is creating a prevailing culture “Safety is First”
b. Contractors management :
This special program is directed toward contractors. The objective is to improve the safety awareness and practices of contractors to the level that qualifies them to work inside Saman Cement premises.
To achieve this goal, Saman Cement HSE team arranged a training plan for the contractor’s safety managers covering all Saman Cement H&S management system elements.
Employees and contractors are encouraged to stop and report unsafe practices whenever they see them. Also, managers/supervisors are aware that they must stop unsafe acts immediately, even if they are not directly responsible for the work.
c. Implementation of fatal injury prevention checklist :
As part of our continuous effort to make Saman Cement the safest working environment, a checklist for safe practices and precautions were developed to guide all employees and contractors practices toward safe actions.
