Russian Copper Company’s press service reports the contest was held among the constituency’s ferrous and no-ferrous metallurgical enterprises, ore mining companies, and companies in the ferrous alloy industry, agriculture, food and processing industry, and healthcare sector.

The contestants got evaluated on the basis of their working conditions, on-site accident rates, occupational health hazards, job safety assessment procedures, job safety projects, and funding for these projects. Uraldigromed had some of the best performance indicators along all these criteria.
