Fight against COVID-19 at Zarubezhneft
Coronavirus was the hottest topic in 2020-2021. To date, the company has sufficient experience in countering the spread of this disease.
Already at the first signs of an increase in the scale of the pandemic in subsidiaries, together with the Corporate Center, plans were promptly formed to counteract the negative consequences of the coronavirus for different scenarios of the development of the situation — normal operation, preparation for responding to a potential threat, active actions in the event of a sharp increase in diseases, and the state of emergency (ES). Command and staff exercises were held at the fields and offices to practice actions when a sick employee is identified.
Accompaniment and support centers for employees and their relatives who have become ill with coronavirus have been created at the Corporate Center and subsidiaries; there is a program of psychological assistance for employees who have undergone COVID-19 with the involvement of specialized psychologists.
Now Zarubezhneft is ready for any scenario. Today, immunization of personnel in the Group of Companies is 95%. Any employee can take an antibody test, be vaccinated and revaccinated at the place of work with the right to choose a vaccine.
Despite the difficult situation with the coronavirus, Zarubezhneft managed not only to maintain the uninterrupted operation of the Group of Companies, but also the health of employees: since the beginning of the pandemic, not a single case of infection has been admitted at production facilities.
