March 2, 2015. Uralvagonzavod Corporation adopted an industrial safety policy for hazardous industrial facilities. This policy is based on the government industrial safety policy and is customized to meet the company’s specific production technicalities, the corporation’s press service reports.

‘The main goal is to ensure secure industrial safety levels at the departments where facilities are run that could do economic, social, and environmental damage to society in case of an accident,’ the press service says.

To prevent accidents, the industrial safety must reach a level that brings their possibility down to its lowermost limit and that corresponds to the current technical and technological development. In case of an accident, the corporation’s departments must be prepared to localize and eliminate the consequences. Uralvagonzavod Corporation, in its turn, is open to a dialogue with all the parties involved.

The policy states the following as its main points: the workers’ life and health are more important that production outcomes; all workers must be informed of steps taken to ensure industrial safety.

‘This policy means that prevention of accidents must be focused on more than dealing with the emergencies that have already happened. The main thing is to make sure all the workforce members understand that ensuring safety is an indispensable part of the working process,’ the press service says.
