We are committed to our health and safety policy, The policy is guided by international best practice, as well as country-specific requirements, taking into account the varying health and safety risk profiles across operations. The policy is communicated to employees and contractors regularly and effectively through various engagements such as inductions, training and workshops, and toolbox talks. Any visitors to operations must attend health and safety inductions, where the policy is clearly explained to them.
As a result, CIMERWA is now IMS certified – this is an integrated system that merges three ISO standards; Quality Management (ISO 9001), Environmental Management (ISO 14001) and Occupational Health and Safety Management (ISO 45001)
The Six Pillars
Strengthening Rwanda transcended a mere slogan and took on a life of its own through six core pillars; Strengthening Education, Strengthening Health, Strengthening Entrepreneurship, Strengthening Infrastructure, Strengthening Lifestyles & Strengthening Environmental Protection. These five pillars now have several community-centric initiatives under their umbrella, most of which can be found in the Western province of the country in Rusizi, Bugarama where CIMERWA Plc’s production plant is located.
