MBR is building stronger communities

Article - August 30, 2011
A raft of programs are helping improve health, safety, education and quality of life of workers and their families
In addition to contributing to the development of the economy, MBR strives to help both its own employees and the communities in which it operates. It does this through a corporate social responsibility program called Viva, which it has run since 2004.

“We have various principles that keep the company in good shape,” says MBR’s president Luis Pires. “And we work together with the community and support the education and health sectors.”

Those benefiting from the Viva program range from workers at MBR’s job sites and offices to partners, and society in general.

An education project for employees called I Want More includes literacy classes and a school catch-up program, with teachers either hired specially or engaged through a partnership with SESI, the Brazilian National Department for Industrial Social Service. Technical qualification training courses are provided in partnership with SENAI, the National Service for Industrial Training Organization, and SINE, the State Secretariat of Social Development and National Service Jobs.

Other elements of the program aimed at the company’s employees are dedicated to promoting occupational and environmental safety, and to keeping an eye on the workers’ health, and encouraging them to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Through its Hands On program, MBR provides support to daycare centers, charities, and communities in areas where the company is active. Technical and operational support is given to the communities through MBR’s S.O.S. Program, and the company also involves itself in socio-cultural projects.

MBR’s efforts concerning the health, safety, and welfare of its employees were recognized in November 2020 by the Social Construction Industry of Rio de Janeiro and the Union of Construction Industry of Rio de Janeiro. The company received the Vitae-Rio Award bronze trophy and certificate as a result of initiatives it implemented while undertaking construction work for ThyssenKrupp CSA.

In the same month, MBR was awarded an ISO 14001 certificate by the Bureau Veritas Certification in recognition of the effectiveness of its environmental management system.
