Occupational health and safety

Activities in the OHS area include standard occupational health and safety topics, fire protection, labour law basics and training in those areas.

The OHS audit activity is a scheduled activity based on the annual audit plan, which covers at least 50% of the Bank’s branches in any given year.

Occupational health and safety tasks are performed by an external provider SEKA under an agreement signed with the Bank. The main activities of the company include: regular audits of all of the Bank’s outlets (at least once in two years), running post-accident proceedings and preparation of documentation and recommendations. The company additionally evaluates fire safety conditions in the facilities owned by the Bank.

These activities are supervised and coordinated by the internal OHS division, which is additionally responsible for issuing opinions, conducting consultations of legal and technical solutions related to employee and facility safety.

All the materials from reports, post-inspection recommendations or post-accident documentation are then used by the Bank’s relevant units for improvement of safety.
