Discipline and vaccinations – the Medical Board of KGHM presents recommendations in the face of an increase in cases of COVID-19

Thursday, 27 January, 2022
Remote work, possibility to vaccinate on a voluntary basis and sanitary discipline – KGHM is not slowing down and proceeds with measures which support health safety of its employees. Those are also recommendations of the company's Medical Board which provides the Management Board with advices on, among others, pandemic situation.

– Our main task is to maintain the production in the company, which has been carried out successfully for many months now, as well as providing best sanitary conditions for the staff. There is no KGHM without its employees. This is why we are introducing as many recommendations as possible and organising vaccination campaigns. The understanding and involvement of employees is also important – said Marcin Chludziński, President of the Board of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A., during the meeting of the Medical Board.

The following rules apply in KGHM: social distance, hand disinfection and wearing masks. Employees, in those departments and divisions where this is possible, can work from home. Restrictions regarding domestic and international delegations are maintained.

– Currently, vaccination rooms vaccinate between 100-200 persons per day. Unfortunately, those are mostly booster shots. The number of people getting vaccinated for the first time is around 30 per day – said dr Marek Ścieszka, Vice President of the Board of Miedziowe Centrum Zdrowia (the Copper Health Centre) in Lublin.

As CEO Marcin Chludziński emphasised, an important element in the fight against the coronavirus at KGHM is the possibility of vaccination for the staff. Since August, the Company, together with the Miedziowe Centrum Zdrowia, has been conducting a campaign of voluntary vaccinations. Employees and their families and friends can get vaccinated in mobile vaccination clinics. The campaign will also be continued in the coming months.

What is important, COVID-19 patients living in the Copper Belt are offered treatment in Miedziowe Centrum Zdrowia. A special ward for coronavirus patients has been operating there since 2020. A modular hospital dedicated to Covid patients is also functioning in Legnica. KGHM supported the development of the infrastructure at this facility.

The Medical Board of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. was established in 2019. It is composed of doctors, scientists and representatives of the management of KGHM. The Board supports and initiates all activities of KGHM and the KGHM Foundation in respect of broad local activities for the health of employees, the inhabitants of the Copper Belt and Dolnośląskie Voivodship.

Due to pandemic, the meeting of the Medical Board of KGHM has been carried out online.
