Safety Excellence Journey

UltraTech Cement has marked occupational safety as its core value and the responsibility towards Safety, Health & Environment (SHE) is driven by the desire to protect the people we work with and society at large. UltraTech Cement has always promoted safety as one of the most integral cogs of its value system. It has taken serious initiatives towards ensuring utmost safety of its employees and the environment they work in. The Safety Excellence Journey is a significant initiative on this front.
