Our mission is to support CEMEX’s Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) performance and culture. As a major player in the global building materials industry, we face a broad array of challenges. The production, storage, transportation, and distribution of our products involve hazards and risks that, if not controlled, can cause harm to people and damage to the environment. For this reason, our top priorities are to keep our people healthy and safe, and reduce the environmental impacts of our operations. We strive to have zero EHS incidents and we act thoroughly to achieve it.
Our work requires a good understanding of EHS risks and practices. To ensure the safe and efficient use of CEMEX’s assets, we periodically monitor, and audit operations. We visit operational sites, analyze company EHS performance data, and review the root causes of incidents and near misses. We use this information to develop plans, management systems, training programs and initiatives that can be applied globally to eliminate or decrease EHS risks.
In this area we welcome anyone with a passion for environmental, health, or safety performance and the ability to convey that passion to a wide and diverse audience across different organizational levels. It is important for us to have team members with a strong work ethic, who are creative and adapt easily to change, and who have good leadership and networking skills. Depending on the role, people interested in this area should be experienced and qualified in health and safety, science, engineering, environmental science, or occupational hygiene.
EHS professionals at CEMEX may choose to stay within the function and deepen their expertise, or they can transfer their skills to other areas such as Human Resources, Risk Management, Technology Projects or Operations.
