At the Bank, the basic regulations in the area of Employee safety are the Principles of Occupational Health and Safety and Fire Protection introduced on September 21, 2022 by an Order of the President of the Management Board, and the Bank Pekao S.A. Group Policy on Occupational Health and Safety.

The Pekao Group and the Bank, as institutions aware of the responsibility for the safety and health protection of employees, are primarily obliged to:

By inspecting various aspects of work, the OHS services have a substantial share in the assessment of occupational risks. The purpose of the process is to find out which threats in the working environment can cause injuries or deterioration in the employee’s health and whether such treats can be eliminated and, if not, what actions should be taken to reduce the related occupational risks.

According to demand, the occupational safety and health service organizes and ensures an adequate level of training in occupational safety and health for newly hired employees, cooperates with relevant organizational units in periodic training, as well as with persons performing the tasks of social labor inspector.

To improve the process of performing the above tasks, in April 2001 the Bank established the OHS Committee, the rights and obligations of which are set out in a separate regulation on the establishment of the OHS Committee at Bank Polska Kasa Opieki Spółka Akcyjna. The last update of this regulation was implemented in October 2020 by an Order of the President of the Management Board.

The OHS Committee is responsible for inspecting working conditions, assessing OHS conditions on a periodical basis, prepare opinions on measures taken by the employer to prevent accidents at work and occupational diseases, draw conclusions concerning improvements in the working conditions, and cooperate with the employer in relation to the fulfilment of the employers OHS obligations.
