Krasnodar, 5 November – Yug Times. Last week, the Social Insurance Fund of the Russian Federation held a conference “Ways to reduce work-related injuries at Krasnodar enterprises.

The VISION ZERO program concept.” The activity organised with support of The Yug Times weekly and held at CLAAS LLC facilities, was dedicated to the issue of identifying the newest approaches to occupational safety and health. According to the Fund, one thousand industrial accidents were registered in 2018 in Krasnodar province, of which 47 were with lethal outcome.

This being said, it was noted that the accident and vocational illnesses frequency had reduced, but the percentage of fatal accidents remained high.

Thus the current situation in the labour market needs profound analysis and substantial preparation to the organisation of the production process to help minimise the occurrence of work-related injuries and vocational illnesses. However, 200,000 employees continue to work in unfavourable conditions, Svetlana Bessarab, chair of the regional trade unions association and State Duma deputy, stressed.

Vadim Shkarlet, head of the occupational risks insurance department of the Social Insurance Fund’s regional branch, said that the current statistics on job-related injuries and fund allocation proves that the more preventive measures are financed the fewer accidents occur.

The attendees of the conference agreed that care for the employees’ health and safety must become part of the corporate culture, especially in the companies that involve sophisticated technological processes.

“We consider labour protection, and industrial and fire safety to be components of a single corporate policy and way of thinking,” Roman Prokuratov, CLAAS logistic and production director, noted. “We state that no work can begin unless it is safe. To do it, what we need is the base. We must achieve full transparency of all processes, starting from the use of human resources.”

Employers also may become subject to various risks. Sergei Ostaptsov, deputy head of the State Labour Inspection, stated that “corporate officials who entailed the consequences of industrial accidents always get related with them.

The limits of management responsibility vary from 2,000 to 5,000 roubles for corporate officials and from 50,000 to 80,000 for legal entities, but Article 143 of the Russian Criminal Code also provides for a penalty of up to 400,000 roubles or up to five years’ confinement. In Krasnodar province, some ten to fifteen suchlike cases turn into criminal ones every year.”
