Heracles Group of Companies invests in Health and Safety of employees

During the "Health and Safety Days" the company organised information and awareness events.  

The Heracles Group of Companies, member of  LafargeHolcim  celebrated the "Health and Safety Days", with information happenings in all the plants throughout Greece and under the motto "I care, I share, I Act | Health and Safety Concerns Us All". These events were aimed at informing employees and raising their awareness on the importance of Health and Safety at work, which constitute a fundamental and non-negotiable priority for the company.

In 2015, despite the unfavourable economic climate, Heracles Group of Companies made productive investments amounting to €6 mn, with emphasis on improving Safety and occupational Health, among other areas. Moreover, in 2015, the Group's Distribution Terminals underwent an inspection by a specialised technical team from the parent company, with exceptional results which placed Greece within the Group's Excellence Club of the best-performing facilities in terms of Health & Safety, globally.

From 22 May 2016 until 5 June 2016, the company held information meetings, with Management participation, in all facilities, from the two cement plants in Volos and Milaki to the Distribution terminals, Quarries and Ready-mix Units throughout Greece. 

The meetings showcased the importance for LafargeHolcim of developing a health and safety culture, as well as the company's progress and best practices. Meanwhile, the people of Heracles Group of Companies had the opportunity to share their personal, safety-related, experiences and concerns. Then followed meetings of the heads of all units with the employees, so as to discuss personal behaviour change commitments undertaken and to encourage materialisation.

On the occasion of the World Environment Day on June 5th, "Health & Safety Days" were concluded with a flower-planting and beach cleaning event at the facilities with the participation of employees and their families. Children and adults joined forces to prove that they "Care - Share - Act" both for Safety and for their work environment.
