How We Protect Our Staff and Partners
At Lafarge Egypt Health and Safety is a core value. In the face of the coronavirus pandemic we have continued to live up to this core value, acting quickly and with great solidarity to protect employees, contractors and all our stakeholders in the time of Coronavirus (Covid-19).
In this unsettling time, our first and foremost priority remains the health and safety of our employees, customers, service partners and the communities we form a part of.
We want to ensure that we are complying with all government directives to help stop the spread of the virus, ease the suffering and bring about an end to it as quickly as possible. Our responsibility and sustainability approach uses our presence and resources in Egypt to provide solutions toward addressing social, environmental and stakeholder challenges, with one clear goal: to create shared value with society.
