HEALTH & SAFETY

 
Occupational health and safety have become a public health priority in industrialized countries and a primary concern, especially in high-risk industries (Rachid et. al. 2015). Cement manufacturing is one of these industries



Health and safety is at the center of everything we do, from the daily routine tasks in our plants to our customers’ project worksites and our actions in our neighboring communities. Our aspiration is to conduct our business with zero harm to people and to create a healthy and safe environment for our employees, contractors, communities, and customers.
INSEE Vietnam’s ambition is that 100% of personnel entering any of our sites return home as safe and healthy as when they arrived. In our company, the overall objective of implementing all of the blocks within the H&S pyramid is to provide an effective H&S management system that is capable of ensuring healthy and safe workplaces. This is measured against the targets for H&S performance. When all the blocks of the pyramid are fully implemented, or green, this indicates that INSEE has met its H&S standards and guidelines, provided the necessary resources and training, and measured H&S performance.

 
 
H&S staff hold sharing sessions in order for employees to feel ownership for safety and take responsibility for themselves and others, and actively converse with colleagues on safety topics. This includes talks on the safety toolbox, safety observation tours, hazard & incident reports, and near miss reports. In particular, a tool called “personal risk assessment” is a simple but effective process for keeping every person safe. Before each task or activity, employees are encouraged to take a small amount of time to consider all aspects of the activity and ask themselves what could go wrong and what they can do to prevent such incidents.
