Research and Production Company “Microkhim” is a company that is responsible for the health of its customers and employees. Therefore, since the beginning of September, at the expense of the company, we have introduced mandatory periodic PCR testing for COVID-19 for our own personnel.
The purpose of such events is to ensure the safety of our employees and production by timely identification of possible carriers of coronavirus infection before they develop their first clinical manifestations and become active distributors of the virus. In addition, we make sure to test our employees upon returning from holidays and business trips before admitting them to the workplace. Such procedures will maximize the maintenance of a high level of anti-epidemic protection at work.
All survey data are transferred to authorized institutions in the manner prescribed by law. In addition, all workers who have even individual signs of deterioration in health are not allowed to the workplace and self-isolate at home, under the supervision of a medical worker.
“During September the company invested about half a million hryvnia in diagnostics and health of employees and we are not going to stop there. According to experts, there are a lot of asymptomatic carriers of the virus among the population, who, without knowing it, become a source of further infection. This somewhere correlates with the humorous expression “there are no healthy people, there are under-examined people.” At our enterprise, we completely excluded such a possibility by diagnosing “ahead of the curve” – we have “no under-examined.” Every week we routinely test all personnel, for certain categories of workers – more often. allowed both to maintain a high level of anti-epidemic protection at the enterprise, and the general state of health of the personnel, “sums up the general director of Microkhim Igor Pogromsky.
It should be noted that this practice is not uncommon among representatives of large business in the Luhansk region. More than a dozen of the region’s leading taxpayers are taking similar comprehensive measures to ensure the health of their employees and customers. At the same time, the most unprotected category of the population continues to be medical workers, very often deprived of even basic tools of self-defense during a pandemic. In this regard, “Microkhim” continues to provide targeted assistance to medical institutions in Luhansk region within the charity program “We make the very best affordable!”
