Pleasant working conditions

The French company Lafarge is a major international manufacturer of building materials – cement, aggregates and concrete, roofing materials and gypsum.  It sees part of its commitment to sustainable development in improving working conditions in its factories, to make work less arduous and optimise both site organisation and workers’ safety.

Lafarge India and the Indian Institute of Engineers have awarded certificates to the first ‘batch’ of mason trainees who received training under “Project Employability”, a program launched by Lafarge India earlier this year. The program, intended for uneducated and unemployed rural youth, was designed to increase employability of the Lafarge plants’ neighbouring communities.
