Cementation is committed to safety because working safely is the right way to work. We care about our employees and feel that they deserve a safe work place and a safety culture they can embrace at work, and bring home as well. We also recognize that a safe contractor will be more attractive to both employees and Clients and this aligns with our goal of being both an employer and contractor of choice. Our target is always zero harm within our operations and for our employees and their families at home as well. Our vision as a company is to change the way mine contracting is carried out in our industry for the benefit of all stakeholders. The first change we want to make is to eliminate harm within our industry and the stakeholders who benefit from this most are the ones with the greatest personal stake in our company, our employees.
