CEMEX top priorities has always been the health & safety of our people, our stakeholders, and the community where we work. And that is why we make sure to keep our people healthy and safe, and reduce the environmental impacts of our operations.
Health and Safety has always been the top priority in the industry. This year 2017, we started our initiative by having a FUN RUN last January together with our Biggest Loser Campaign. Health campaign's objectives are to unify all of our health efforts and to align all occupational and preventive health programs, both current and developing, at all levels of the company.
The program formalizes and strengthens our knowledge base for the different aspects of CEMEX's Health Management System. The Health Essentials initiative aligns all current and developing CEMEX health programs, occupational as well as preventive. It is divided into twelve different health promotion topics and aims to cover the most important issues our people face every day regarding health. This program was developed including self assessments, designed to make people think about their lifestyle and this month we will draw our attention to NUTRITION AND WELLNESS.
For the month of February, we were focusing on NUTRITION AND WELLNESS of the employee. And with the support of the Management, the HR/HSE Team and the VLCC, we ensure the health of our employees by conducting and providing them the health assessment so that they will know the current status of their health.
