Accidents at work. The first 10 minutes are crucial.


By the end of September 2017, more than 56,100 persons were injured as a consequence of accidents at work. According to the data of the Central Statistical Office, the most accident-prone sectors included industrial processing, trade, transport, storage, and construction. Due to their inability to work, employees collectively spent more than 1.8 million days on sick leaves – this is more than 33 days per one injured person. In many situations, the consequences of the accident could have been much less serious if appropriate aid was provided immediately. Human health and lives frequently depend on whether employees (or witnesses of an accident) are able to react properly and provide first aid.
More than half of Poles are treated at private dental offices

This is taking place to meet the expectations of patients who value quality services, convenience, trust in doctors, and modern office equipment. In Poland, this market has been dominated by private entities that can afford expensive investments (as public spending on dentistry makes up only 2.5 percent of the entire National Health Fund budget). Over half of Polish patients are treated by private entities.

More and more small and medium companies are investing in medical care for employees


According to the latest Eurostat data, Poland is in the top five countries of the European Union with the lowest unemployment rate. Although on one hand these statistics are a cause for joy, they also pose a big challenge for many employers, who are having a harder time finding good employees these days. In order to be competitive on the market, you have to offer attractive non-financial benefits. At the top of the candidates' list of expectations is private medical care – as many as 14 percent of them declare it important. And although it is already a standard in corporations, it is still a big challenge for small and micro-enterprises, in which only 6 percent of employees are covered by private medical care. Why is it worth investing in it?
