The company’s operations are in strict adherence to the authorities´ regulations, recognising the importance of the construction industry in supporting the maintenance and service of essential infrastructure required to face the pandemic and contribute to the economy in the countries where the company is present.

Cemex’s core businesses of cement, ready-mix concrete, and aggregates have, by nature, a low density of employees in the work area, so the risk of transmission is less probable. However, more than 50 new protocols were implemented to reduce the risk of contagion.

“Due to this pandemic, we have complemented our existing protocols by developing and implementing special protocols and guidelines to protect our employees, communities, and customers from COVID-19 risk. Additionally, we are constantly updating and improving our protocols to be in line with official health regulations,” said Fernando A. González, CEO of Cemex.

The protocols developed are based on national and international guidelines established by experts in the field, such as the World Health Organization (WHO), and in strict adherence to local health regulations.

Among the protocols implemented are the company’s Personal Hygiene Protocol, Physical Distancing Protocol, Screening at Workplace Protocol, Cemex Truck Drivers Protocol, Workplace Cleaning Protocol, and Commuting To and From Work Protocol, among many others.

Cemex also noted that it is using digital technologies to limit physical contact and protect employees, customers, and suppliers.
