Bank Millennium Group employees have access to private medical care. Additionally, there is a medical practice operating at the Bank’s Head Office in Warsaw. Every year influenza vaccinations are organized in the autumn for all interested employees. The Bank also runs the Millennium Active Zone program encouraging people to lead an active lifestyle and under social benefits it offers the Multisport card giving unlimited access to sport facilities across Poland. Details concerning these programs are available in the section entitled “Social benefits”.
Occupational Health and Safety activities are regulated in the Instructions for managing occupational health and safety and fire protection in Bank Millennium. They include standard occupational health and safety topics, fire protection, labor law basics and training in these areas. The Companies are subject to the same instructions.
The OHS audit activity is a scheduled activity based on the annual audit plan, which covers at least 50% of all the Bank’s branches in any given year. All the materials from reports, post-inspection recommendations or post-accident documentation are then used by the Bank’s relevant organizational units for improvement of safety.
The key risks related to failing to observe OHS rules pertain to the possibility of employees sustaining unfavorable health consequences (chiefly falling, getting hit and mental and physical burdens), the ensuing absence from work and the requirement to disburse damages.
An effective way of preventing these types of risks is to deliver training to employees and administer regular inspections of offices and the bank’s branches with an eye to compliance with the rules of fire protection and OHS. [GRI 103-1, 103-2, 103-3] [GRI 102-11]
