Health and Safety is the number one priority throughout the global Lafarge group. Comprehensive healthcare programmes and continually reinforced safety training are directed at ensuring the well-being of Lafarge employees, the company's contractors, transporter's, customers and visitors to our sites. We also believe that health and safety cannot be strictly workplace issues and embrace the local communities in our endeavours to promote better standards.
Working with different partners and peer educators, Lafarge administers an HIV/ AIDS programme for all its employees and dependants. Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe has increased its disease prevention efforts to incorporate programmes to combat malaria, tuberculosis and other diseases.
