Health and Safety

Absence of fatalities, incidents, accidents and occupational diseases is one of the most important tasks of the Company. We recognise our responsibility not only to employees but also to their families and society as a whole.

Therefore, we strive to create the most comfortable and favourable working conditions. However, achieving a zero accident rate is only possible if each worker adheres to safety rules.

Safety is one of the key elements of our Code of Corporate Culture:

“Safety is an unconditional value that must be an integral part of any action or decision. We understand that careless, thoughtless and irresponsible actions may have tragic implications not only for ourselves and our colleagues, but also for our families and friends. No achievement or economic benefit can justify loss of life or damage to a person’s health.”
