Occupational Health and Safety

In all business processes including raw material production, procurement, cement, aggregate, and ready-mixed concrete production, logistics, and sales and marketing, Akçansa manages health and safety risks of its employees and all stakeholders arising from business processes. Occupational health and safety is the common primary area for all links in the value chain.

Measures taken for minimizing the health and safety risks arising from working conditions are different for all stakeholders. These measures and practices aim creating a healthy and safe environment at the work areas.

Trainings and practices towards the employees or behavior oriented audits take place, while training programs containing training, awareness raising, and simulations are being organized for the suppliers or the customers.

5 Minutes for My Risks!

With the slogan “5 Minutes for My Risks”, R5 Practice is to perform and record own risk assessments by all employees before each activity in the business process. Thus, this practice aims ensuring effective personal participation to the Occupational Health and Safety practices, employees to identify the work related dangers from the Occupational Safety perspective before they start working, and developing measures by assessing the risks. No dangerous work is started after the risk assessment, and additional measures are taken by informing the executives.

OHS Academy

In addition to being a leader with its business volume, Akçansa attaches importance for being the leader in sustainability priorities, and thus launches practices pioneering the industry. Akçansa OHS Academy is another pioneer practice launched for developing an OHS culture and transferring knowledge and experience for Akçansa employees, as well as for operational stakeholders such as business partners and suppliers during the reporting period.

Akçansa OHS Academy serves with a continuous and innovative approach to all Akçansa employees and operational stakeholders, both theoretically and practically, within the scope of Akçansa OHS Golden Rules meeting the requirements of the best international practices and standards related to the Occupational Health and Safety, as well as the requirements of the Occupational Safety Law.
