Health & Safety
Our mission is to support CEMEX’s Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) performance and culture. As a major player in the global building
materials industry, we face a broad array of challenges. The production,
storage, transportation, and distribution of our products involve
hazards and risks that, if not controlled, can cause harm to people and
damage to the environment. For this reason, our top priorities are to
keep our people healthy and safe, and reduce the environmental impacts
of our operations. We strive to have zero EHS incidents; we act
thoroughly to achieve it.
Our work requires a good understanding of EHS risks and practices. To
assure the safe and efficient use of CEMEX’s assets, we periodically
monitor, and audit operations. We visit operational sites, analyse
company EHS performance data, and review the root causes of incidents
and near misses. We use this information to develop plans, management
systems, training programs and initiatives that can be applied globally
to eliminate or decrease EHS risks.
Be Part of the Challenge
In this area we welcome anyone with a passion for environmental,
health, or safety performance and the ability to convey that passion to a
wide and diverse audience across different organisational levels. It is
important for us to have team members with a strong work ethic, who are
creative and adapt easily to change, and who have good leadership and
networking skills. Depending on the role, people interested in this area
should be experienced and qualified in health and safety, science,
engineering, environmental science, or occupational hygiene.
EHS professionals at CEMEX may choose to stay within the function and
deepen their expertise, or they can transfer their skills to other
areas such as Human Resources, Risk Management, Technology Projects,
Operations, and Communications.
