Particular attention was paid in 2017 to preventive treatment in relation to acute conditions at the workplace, cardiovascular diseases, and the prevention of a number of dangerous infections (including anthrax).

The system of regular and in-depth medical check-ups to prevent acute conditions was expanded. Employees receive primary healthcare from healthcare professionals at more than 100 first-aid rooms, pre-trip medical examination rooms, and medical clinics.

Thanks to equipment upgrades at clinics used for medical check-ups, state-of-the-art electronic systems are now in use and a number of tests are now automated, thereby significantly reducing the amount of time needed to undergo certain procedures.
