Occupational health and safety costs
A total damage resulting from occupational injuries includes costs of different expert examinations, transport charges, creation of conditions for investigation committees and court judgments on previous years' accidents.
Generally, the structure of occupational health and safety costs and amounts remain stable. The reason is that occupational health and safety costs are properly budgeted. A slight increase in occupational health and safety costs in 2015 was due to special workplace labour conditions assessment of 4,516 work stations.
A slight reduction of accident prevention costs and overall workplace labour conditions improvement costs was caused by more activities completed in 2013 (equipment of meal rooms, purchase of metal lockers for special clothes, and purchase of RCS) to fulfill the workplace labour conditions improvement action plans.
