Signatures of commitment to work safely

Workplaces at USSK's divisional plants and subsidiary companies as well as various well-frequented locations outside the works area will see more than 50 billboards appearing next week encouraging the Company's workforce to pay especial attention to safety at work. The aim of this initiative, prepared by Company management with the support of the trade unions, is to raise employees' awareness of occupational safety, and in this way to reverse this year's unfavorably developing trend in the injury rate.
