No shortcuts when it comes to Zero Harm
James Hardie Zero Harm Days are now an annual event across all our sites. On these safety reset days, we stop production, reaffirm why Zero Harm is our overriding priority and create opportunities for teams to engage in interactive learning via virtual reality and presentations from guest speakers. We first shut down operations for safety days in Australia and North America in 2021. By pausing operations regardless of product demand, we are showing that our business will never put profit before safety.
