Compliance with OHS-related regulations is a key component of providing a healthy and safe working environment for our employees. In accordance with these regulations, the Group insures all EVRAZ employees against work-related accidents and occupational diseases. This insurance covers expenses related to the treatment of all occupational illnesses.
EVRAZ also provides financial assistance to employees where necessary. Employees in need of extended medical treatment are eligible for additional compensation. In addition to legislative requirements, EVRAZ organises health campaigns at all Group facilities, which are available to all employees throughout the year.
EVRAZ constantly monitors the working conditions of workplaces that see the greatest health risks, and the Group continues to improve risk-based controls to prevent occupational diseases. Each employee has to undergo an annual medical examination, as well as health checks before beginning employment.
