Lafarge is the safest company in its sector. Since 2002, the Group has achieved a significant reduction in both the frequency and the gravity of work-related accidents. These improvements are due in part to the Group's Health and Safety Management System, which defines the minimum safety levels required for all Lafarge sites and through embracing best practices and encouraging innovation. This has led to Qatar Precast being awarded Best Risk Management 2009 by Lafarge for the innovative solution of edge protection for working at height.
