An ad hoc committee was set up to look into the causes and circumstances of a worker’s death at UC RUSAL Ural smelter.

The worker was killed during switching operations with the railway carriages; according to the enterprise’s management, he slipped from the buffer bar onto the approaching lines and was deadly injured.

‘It has preliminarily been reported that the accident was caused by a violation of safety regulations, as the worker was located in the part of the carriage that is not meant for performing switching operations,’ UC RUSAL representative Roman Lukichev told UrBC.

The company announced the payments to the victim’s family would be made in accordance with the existing legislation.
