Philippines: Republic Cement has held a rally assembling over one thousand construction workers at its Norzagaray Plant to aim for five million safe man hours. The cement producer has reached 4.5 million man hours at its expansion projects at Bulacan, Batangas and Iligan. This includes no lost-time injuries or fatalities.
“Safety is not a punishment. It’s not a punishment to wear your helmet, boots, or harness. It’s a gift of life - the life of your fellow workers and of your family,” said
Roy Ruedas, Project Lead at Aboitiz Construction.
