Occupational health and safety

In line with its Safety Policy, Buzzi Unicem believes that safe working conditions can only be achieved through a thorough risk assessment, the careful planning of prevention measures, and a control system that involves all employees. Besides prevention, an assessment of the accidents reported is becoming an increasingly important tool, because identifying the causes of accidents and defining corrective actions is essential for preventing repeat incidents. This systemic approach allows Buzzi Unicem to continuously improve its accident indexes, together with the widespread promotion of a culture of safety and health within the workplace.

The frequency index (number of accidents per million hours worked), and the severity index (days lost as a result of accidents per thousand hours worked) trends are shown below.
