"Health & Safety at Work is our highest priority. We want each of our employees and subcontractors, regardless of his or her job position, to spend safe and secure working days in Cementarnica Usje until retirement. In this perspective, Titan has been continuously investing hundreds of thousands of Euros each year in improving the Health & Safety at Work through various projects. This €300,000 Project only proves our honest determination for raising the level of Health & Safety at Work to a world class level. This project depends on each of us, and it cannot be implemented if it does not involve every employee and subcontractor of the Company. Every single person’s Health & Safety is extremely important to us," stated Anthony Nikolopoulos, Chief Executive Director of Cementarnica USJE AD.

The implementation of this project will be managed by DuPont Safety Resources (DSR), which is the world leader in the field of Health & Safety at Work and has enormous experience in implementing such projects.
