SUEK begins employee vaccination against COVID-19

26 February 2021
Siberian Coal Energy Company (SUEK) has joined a vaccination against coronavirus infection. 

SUEK's head office employees will be offered antibody tests and vaccination right at the office. In the regions, employees will apply to the medical unit and, as new batches of Gam-COVID-Vac (Sputnik V) arrive, the doctors will administer the vaccine.

In the city of Krasnoyarsk, given the stringent requirements for the storage and use of the vaccine and for the medical support to the those vaccinated, vaccination will take place in the district polyclinics, whereas in the town of Sharypovo, it will be administered at the health post of SUEK’s Berezovsky mine, with provision for work schedule. "All vaccinated people, from the beginning to the end of the immunisation process, enjoy the support of the doctors from the corporate Medical Unit regarding organisational issues, recommendations in case of post-vaccination reactions, etc. Our doctors are always in touch," says Valentina Khusainova, Deputy Head of the HSE Service at SUEK-Krasnoyarsk.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, SUEK owned by Andrey Melnichenko has been delivering a comprehensive programme to prevent coronavirus and minimise its consequences. Since March 2020, all units have been taking enhanced safety measures: mandatory mask wearing and thermometry, frequent sanitation of premises and company vehicles; employees receive protective medical masks and antiseptic gels free of charge.

For miners who had COVID-19, the company has introduced a rehabilitation programme at the corporate health centre in the town of Borodino, including a wide range of rehabilitation options. Miners' children can also do conditioning and breathing exercises with instructors from the Polyany children's health centre affiliated to the Department for Presidential Affairs: their online training programme is available to residents of mining towns through the Department's partnership with SUEK to the Regions Foundation.
