How We Protect our Staff and Partners


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).


The Business Resilience Team (BRT)

In early January 2020 in compliance with LafargeHolcim the Business Resilience Team was established to meet the confronted challenge. The BRT put in place their expertise in HR, Health & Safety, Communications, Operations, Procurement, IT, Legal, Compliance, Security and Resilience to provide monitoring, guidance, advice and reporting on the preparedness of Lafarge Egypt. Response is prepared using a four alert level Trigger Action Response Plan (TARP), with specific actions at each deteriorating alert level. Our Team are accountable to comply with the national health regulatory requirements and the execution of central guidance on a risk basis.

Our measures

We have put in place a range of local measures to protect our teams and contribute to the containment of the disease. These measures are: strict adherence to social distancing in both the operations and our offices, adaption of our Health and Safety guidance to all our operations in relation to COVID-19, creation of company-wide COVID-19 online resource center, available to all our employees, travel restrictions and work-from-home arrangements wherever possible, as well as strong promotion of digital (i.e. ‘contactless’) initiatives in our markets.

Vaccine Campaign

Because we care for our employees’ health

Our CEO Solomon Baumgartner Aviles sponsored an internal campaign at Sokhna Cement Plant to emphasize on the importance of Covid-19 Vaccine. He was accompanied by a doctor to answer all inquiries about vaccine. 
This resulted in increasing the registered number of Lafarge employees to take Covid-19 Vaccine.
