76% of employees have antibodies to COVID-19 at Tomskneftekhim

July 06/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) --- 76% of employees have antibodies to COVID-19 at Tomskneftekhim, the press service of the enterprise reports.

Nevertheless, at the Tomsk enterprises of SIBUR, a mandatory mask regime remains, as well as the need to observe social distance in personal interaction and other measures to prevent infection with COVID-19.

The press service of the enterprise notes that the collective immunity at Tomskneftekhim has developed from people who have had COVID-19, including asymptomatic ones, as well as vaccinated employees. Before the start of the mass vaccination against COVID-19 in Tomsk, all employees of Tomskneftekhim were tested for antibodies. SIBUR, as a responsible employer, contributes to providing employees with the maximum information to make an informed and balanced decision, as well as to provide them with the opportunity to get vaccinated.

"Testing of all employees of the enterprise for antibodies allowed us to collect information on the share of herd immunity. There are those who want to vaccinate. And our key task is to help them organizationally. Special thanks to the employees of the enterprise who have shown concern for their own health and the health of their colleagues. Despite the achieved results, the enterprise continues to operate a set of anti-virus measures aimed at creating a safe working environment for personnel, "says Vladimir Pleshkov, General Director of Tomskneftekhim.

Collective immunity of more than 70% belongs to two Tomsk enterprises of SIBUR: Tomskneftekhim and the R&D center NIOST. "Creating a safe work environment is a priority for the employer. As for employees, the degree of personal responsibility to themselves and their loved ones is more important than ever. NIOST's collective immunity is 73%," says Olga Khovanskaya, NIOST executive director.

In 2020, SIBUR allocated more than 2.9 billion rubles for measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at its enterprises in the regions of its operation. During the coronavirus pandemic, a rotational regime was introduced at Tomskneftekhim. The enterprise is included in the list of strategic organizations in the region. The main production personnel, who ensure a smooth production process, underwent testing before entering the shift. The internal rotational regime at the enterprise lasted for more than 4 months. The Tomsk enterprise did not stop work for a single day, ensuring the production of polyethylene and polypropylene.

SIBUR also provided significant assistance to medical institutions in the territories of its presence: epidemiological kits for medical personnel were sent to the Stroitel medical unit. About 1000 pulse oximeters were transferred by Tomskneftekhim to the region for distribution to medical organizations.

According to the ScanPlast of MRC, Tomskneftekhim produced about 13,300 tonnes of propylene polymers in May against 12,800 tonnes a month earlier. For five months, the production of polypropylene at the Tomsk enterprise reached 64,800 tonnes, which is 1% more than in 2020.

LLC "Tomskneftekhim" was opened after the transformation of TNHK in 2003. It is a subsidiary of PJSC SIBUR-Holding, which is one of the backbone enterprises of the Russian Federation. At the end of 2019, the authorized capital of Tomskneftekhim amounted to 6.5 billion rubles, sales revenue - 13.2 billion rubles, net profit - 1.9 billion rubles.
