26 June 2013

Summer season for the health improvement is at the very height at KHARTSYZSK PIPE PLANT of Metinvest. In 2013, more than UAH 3 million will be allocated for cultural and sports events and health improvement of the plant workers.

This summer, plant workers and their families will be able to have a rest on the best resorts of the Black and Azov coasts and in the Crimean sanatorium zones: Zhelezny Port, Alushta, Saki, Berdyansk, Urzuf. Voucher cost per person for the employee of KHARTSYZSK PIPE will amount to 30% of its value. Despite the general rise in prices, the company has decided not to raise the cost of vouchers at the units of "Health Resorts Plus" and remained them at the previous year level. 

KHARTSYZSK PIPE will focus on summer camps for children of its employees. Comfortable Healthcare Centre n.a. Dubinin will work for children during the whole summer. In addition, children will be able to have a rest in the plant health and recreation centre "Trubnik" where children will be provided with a wide range of physiotherapy treatments, three meals daily, as well as active participation in cultural events. The company will provide all interested persons with vouchers to Children Healthcare Centre.    

KHARTSYZSK PIPE acquires vouchers for workers who are in the health risk group and who have chronic diseases to the specialized health resort establishments of Ukraine to undergo treatment and preventive measures of diseases aggravation. This category of staff is provided with vouchers for the entire calendar year.

"The main value of the company is its people, so we pay much attention to the health improvement of our employees and not just in summer. This year, the emphasis has been made precisely on health resort vouchers: qualitative and comfortable rest at Ukrainian resorts is a key to successful work for the whole year", the director for Human Resources and Social Affairs Roman Tsukurov said.
