Obolon Corporation uses a state-of-the-art approach to occupational safety. All company's facilities and structural units have registries for identification of hazard assessment of risks related to the personnel and other persons at the company's premises.
In order to reduce the level of risks and improve the working conditions, the corporation implemented OHSAS 18001, an occupational health and safety management system, which was certified by the DEKRA international company in 2008.
Today, the Obolon Corporation companies run the Occupational Health and Safety Monitoring programme.
Besides preventing accidents and work-related diseases, systematic monitoring increases the efficiency of forecasting and speed of resolving the occupational safety problems.
Obolon Corporation takes a proactive and responsible position in health protection and promotion of a healthy lifestyle among its employees.
Obolon cooperates with several medical facilities and specialized organizations, whose specialists have been conducting medical training sessions and informational seminars for the corporation employees during a year now.
In late April 2013, with the assistance from Dr. Bohomolets Dermatology and Cosmetology Institute and in cooperation with the Stop Melanoma NGO, the corporation carried out an educational campaign among the brewery employees. Under the project, over 2500 employees were informed about the consequences of mole degeneration. All brewery employees had a chance to undergo remote diagnostics of hazardous skin lesions and moles without leaving the workplace.
Obolon Corporation always takes part in the informational campaigns as part of the Ukrainian anti-tuberculosis week. In 2013-2014, with the expert support from the US Agency for International Development (USAID) project, Obolon organized thematic events for preventing tuberculosis among the employees.
Long-term support of sports events, in particular the Obolon-Brovar soccer club, encourages our employees to take part in sports events held by the corporation. In addition to developing competitiveness, these sports activities help the employees always stay fit. Every year, the company holds two soccer championships, Factory Cup and President Cup. It also organizes chess and checkers tournaments, Olympics, and other sports activities. About 1 thousand of Obolon employees do sports in the company's buildings every year.
In order to keep the the employees healthy and prevent musculoskeletal diseases, a gym with up-to-date sports equipment has been organized at the main brewery. Today, over 50 employees of the brewery systematically go to the gym and promote healthy lifestyles among their colleagues.
In 2015, approximately 254 persons, or 4.8% of the total number of Obolon Corporation employees, were people with special needs. Those are employees at various stages of heart disease, cancer, eye disease, diabetes, and musculoskeletal issues. Although most of them work as trade agents, some employees are engaged in the production.
