Czech Republic: Aiming to be a non-smoking company
In August 2014, we set up a unique programme making use of state-of-the art medicine to help our Czech employees give up smoking at our Ostrava steel plant. Those signing up to the six-week programme pay one third of the total costs, but are reimbursed once they have
successfully completed the programme. This consists of an initial check-up, two follow-up sessions, a chest X-ray, pulmonary and other tests, and six doses of a treatment designed to help with withdrawal symptoms.
