Emergency Services

Safety is a priority at Lafarge and as such, the Lafarge Dundas Quarry has partnered with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), the Hamilton Police Explosive Disposal Unit and the Hamilton Fire Department for the past decade to help with various projects and initiatives.

In March 2012, Lafarge helped on a joint project with National Defense, OPP, Hamilton Police, Toronto Police, and Windsor Police to run a week-long exercise in testing new bus window technology to minimize damage and loss of life from potential blasts.

Also, in 2011, Lafarge donated a mannequin used for confined space training to the local Hamilton Fire Department for training exercises.
