At CRH, safety is our top priority and our ambition is to have a culture of safety and wellness working towards zero harm.

We demand the highest safety standards in everything we do, driven by our employees and management at every level as we work to achieve our common goal – that nobody gets hurt at work.

Our businesses are collaborating to drive safety improvements across our industry and beyond, implementing best practice safety management systems and health and wellbeing programmes across all our locations.

Case Studies

Collaborating for safety across our Building Products Division

Oldcastle APG and Oldcastle Infrastructure, both part of our Building Products Division in the US, collaborated to improve and standardise machine specific lockout/tagout/tryout (LOTOTO) procedures.

This involved the roll-out of BradyLink360, a web-based software application and mobile app, which has allowed Oldcastle APG and Oldcastle Infrastructure to produce safety procedures with embedded pictures designed to increase clarity of the LOTOTO procedure.

The system ensures all steps are taken before employees enter potentially dangerous work areas.

Engaging employees on the CRH Life Saving Rules

Europe Materials North Danube Cluster comprising Austria, Hungary and Slovakia has launched a new Care & Share campaign to engage employees on safety. The programme aims to ensure consistent training across the cluster on our CRH Life Saving Rules and provide our employees with the knowledge around risks and the control measures needed to prevent serious injuries.
