KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. as well as all international mines of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. Group and Sierra Gorda S.C.M. took a number of measures in connection with the coronavirus pandemic announced in 2020. These are shown in the graphic below:

  • Covid patient care at the hospital MCZ in Lubin
  • Temporary hospital in Legnica
  • Mobile vaccination points for employees of KGHM and others
  • Protective procedures
  • Thermal cameras
  • Disinfectant liquid
  • Masks in common-use areas
  • Personal safety measures when travelling into/out of the mines
  • Limits in employee transport vehicles
  • Informational campaign about vaccinations
  • Competitions for employees promoting vaccination
  • Continuous announcements on internal procedures and sanitary services guidelines in Company media platforms
  • Infolines for employees and dedicated e-mail addresses

In 2021, activities related to assistance for the inhabitants of, among others, the Copper Basin, but also in support of KGHM employees, continued. Special emphasis was placed on educational and informational activities, as well as mitigating the effects of the pandemic, among others by popularising and providing access to psychological advice for employees and the region’s inhabitants. The Management Board’s Medical Council made recommendations related to sanitary strictures on an ongoing basis. Mobile vaccination points were launched in late July and early August in each of the Company’s facilities. The possibility of voluntary vaccination against COVID 19 was offered not only to employees, but also to the families, friends and acquaintances of KGHM’s employees. Thanks to the campaign and the commitment of the medical staff of the Copper Health Centre (a Group company), nearly 2,200 people were vaccinated. The campaign continues in 2022.
