SAFETY POLICY

For many years, CCB has striven to improve the safety and well-being of its employees at work as well as its external service providers working on its sites, going far beyond mere compliance with regulatory requirements.

In recent years, specific tools have been put in place to move towards zero accidents, tools that are now bearing fruit through active involvement by all employees.

These approaches focus on concrete commitment from management and the hierarchy, integrating all employees through awareness-raising and training actions, organising work operations on machinery, detecting and analysing malfunctions, observing work situations and the involvement of management, internal employees and those of our partners outside the company.

This improvement can be seen in the number of industrial accidents requiring sick leave for employees which has fallen from 20 to less than 4 over the last five years (over 12 sliding month periods) or the achievement of a record of over 1,000 days with zero accidents requiring sick leave at the entire Gaurain cement factory.

FIRST PARKING AREAS TO ADJUST
REAR VIEW MIRRORS IN WALLONIA

To promote maximum security, CCB has put in place a rear view mirror adjustment area on its Chaussée de Bruxelles site to minimise inevitable blind spots when a vehicle changes lane. CCB considered it important and necessary to set up this system which may help prevent some of the often fatal accidents between trucks and other smaller road vehicles.
