UrBC, Yekaterinburg, November 18, 2015. Kamensk-Uralsky Foundry Plant/KULZ (a member enterprise of Ural Vagon Zavod Corporation) is currently having its working conditions re-evaluated by Modern Solutions, an independent expert company from Yekaterinburg; the company was accredited by the Federal Labor Ministry, the corporation’s press service reports.

The outsourced experts’ task is to take measurements of air cleanliness, noise levels, and labor severity in order to detect potentially hazardous and harmful production factors. They also check whether workers use protective gear and devices and comply with labor safety regulations. The company trade union is supervising the course of the inspection.

The collected data are to be processed, systematized, and presented to the customer, whereupon KULZ specialists will compare these new data with the results of previous measurements to elaborate a set of measures.

‘Based on the results of this assessment, an ad hoc committee will decide on compensating workers operating in harmful conditions through shortened work hours, an extra paid holiday, a pay rise, meal vouchers, early retirement options,’ says the plant’s Deputy Director for Labor Protection, Environment, & Industrial Safety Sergei Mosunov.

‘The main idea is to ensure optimal working conditions to preserve a worker’s health and to increase their lifespan.’
