Health and Safety

Ambuja Cement is committed to achieving Zero Harm at its workplace. Strong emphasis on improving health and safety (H&S) parameters has helped the company substantially reduce the number of onsite injuries

Four-pronged strategy for health and safety
1. Reduce risks through people engagement
2. Capability building
3. Advanced engineering solutions for key risk areas
4. Strengthening H&S management systems and processes

For Ambuja Cement, its people are its most important resource. The company is committed to ensure the safety of all its employees, contractors and others connected with its operations, through its Zero Harm policy.

The company has substantially reduced the number of onsite injuries with its strong emphasis on improving health and safety parameters, reducing risks through people engagement, capability building, and strengthening health and safety management systems and processes. However, there is more to be done to achieve the company's ultimate goal of achieving a Zero Harm workplace.

We Care – an umbrella initiative which covers all stakeholders – has played a seminal role in transforming Ambuja Cement's operations as well as attitudes towards safety. The We Care initiative has led the way in training and capability building, and has been spearheading the company's efforts to achieve the goal of Zero Harm.

All plants of Ambuja Cement are certified as per OHSAS 18001 world standard.
