The regional HSE committee session took place in Kursk on 06.07.2017. One of the main topics was discussed: the compliance with the law by building organizations in the region.
This area is one of the most dangerous in the country. Among the main reasons for injury rate there are violations of workplace and industrial discipline, personal incautiousness and lack of education in the area of workplace safety.
In the first half of 2017 a sharp decrease of industial injury rate is noticed in the Kursk region. Only three incidents occurred in that time, the number of chronical professional diseases among builders also became smaller. Such results are achieved thanks to preventive maintenance. Last year 400 people occupied in building got education in the area of HSE, this year we have got around 250 specialists.
Also the employers regularly provide special assessment of employment terms of their workers, organize medical examinations, buy protective overalls, safety footwear and personal protective equipment. A certain amount of money spent on preventive maintenance is compensated by Social Insurance Fund.
