Accident reporting facilitates analysis of the causes of injuries and diseases arising from accidents at work, helping to work out and adopt preventative measures. As a result, it helps raise the staff’s awareness and foster a work safety culture.

All employees have access to OHS training and extensive medical care. Each employee has been instructed about the occupational risk level at their workplace. The training courses are conducted regularly, and their frequency depends on the job and related risks. Increasing the level of safety is also the subject of annual meetings organised by the Company’s Head Office, devoted to OHS conditions and experience sharing, and attended by representatives of external bodies, such as the National Labour Inspectorate.

The Company builds a safe work culture among employees, which translates into their safe behaviour, attitudes and actions. We undertake measures aimed at continuous improvement of safety of all persons staying in our premises, including visitors.

Work safety metrics

Safety-related activities are monitored continuously by way of:

proactive monitoring – consists in monitoring the effectiveness of implementation of procedures and measures designed to eliminate or minimise risk, defined at the planning phase. Its purpose is to assess the effectiveness of preventive measures.

reactive monitoring – provides information on loss events (accidents, failures and occupational diseases) and facilitates drawing appropriate conclusions and improving OHS management. It is a post-event preventive measure, designed to eliminate similar loss events in the future.

All accidents, events and conditions which are related to the Group’s operations and which result in a loss or could potentially result in a loss are required to be reported. This applies to the operations of both the PGNiG branches and the PGNiG Group companies, as well as contractors and suppliers carrying out work for the Group.
