HOLCIM (CANADA) INC. LAUNCHES THIRD ANNUAL SAFETY DAY CAMPAIGN

TORONTO, June 22, 2011 /CNW/ - Holcim (Canada) Inc. launches its third annual Safety Day campaign today. Introduced in 2009, Safety Day is one of many initiatives put in place by the company to achieve its goal of ZERO HARM TO PEOPLE. It is meant to be an occasion to reflect on health and safety in the workplace, and further improve it. The event will take place on September 21 and will focus on incident prevention, with activities organized at every location across Canada.

"This year, employees will go beyond task specific risk analysis. They will be asked to think of what could happen around them, that is not directly related to their task, but that could still impact them and cause an incident," explained Paul Ostrander, President and Chief Executive Officer, Holcim (Canada) Inc. "They will also be encouraged to share their thoughts and experiences in order for each division of the company to benefit from what the others have learned."

Safety is Holcim Canada's number one priority and the company and its divisions are committed to sending employees home safely at the end of every day.
