A representative of Severstal, one of the world's largest steel and mining companies, told the newspaper that it has advised its staff to refrain from playing Pokemon Go at the workplace as the game is a distraction from work, violates technical safety rules and increases the risk of injury.
Pokemon Go is a free augmented reality mobile game, where the picture displayed on the smartphone screen is projected onto real-world locations. The main aim of the game is to catch a Pokemon, a pocket monster. It has become a worldwide hit since its launch in July and has already been blamed for a wave of crimes, traffic violations and complaints in cities around the globe.
