Occupational safety and health protection

MOEX places high value on its employees’ life and health, and maintains high standards in occupational safety and health protection. Management sets relevant tasks and goals for occupational health and safety, as well as planning and financing measures to achieve these goals. Management undertakes to respect these values and calls on employees to do the same.

Provision of an optimal work-life balance is controlled through regular assessment of working conditions, maintenance of high sanitary standards, and implementation of sanitary and preventative health measures. This helps to support a high level of workplace efficiency.

In 2019, working conditions were specially assessed at 103 NCC locations. The assessment found no harmful or hazardous operational factors, and working conditions were considered acceptable.

In addition, professional risks at all MOEX and NCC locations were assessed to determine professional hazards for employees in the course of their duties, and to determine the scale of any hazards and the severity of possible consequences.

In 2019, managers received training on first aid and on occupational and fire safety. A total of 70 people participated, and were trained on basic occupational and fire safety, as well as on how to respond promptly to emergencies.

The Group regularly organises briefings on occupational, electric, fire and civil safety and emergencies. In 2019, 374 new employees competed the occupational safety induction course.

MOEX’s internal corporate portal contains instructions and provisions on occupational safety, as well as articles about health, and allows for remote learning on occupational safety topics.

Employees who feel unwell or need urgent medical aid can be treated by in-house corporate doctors at their facilities in the Exchange’s offices in Moscow.

To maintain safe working conditions and prevent industrial injuries and occupational illness, the Group has established failsafe measures including procedures for dealing with injuries and sickness based on existing response and mitigation plans and plans currently under development.
