It was announced by Irina Shashmurina, Head of Working Environment Control Laboratory of the Engineering and Technical Center, during the session «Occupational Safety and Health: Trends and Prospects» of the International Forum on Industrial Safety on Wednesday, BNA reports.
Gazprom Transgaz Samara is reclassifying certain critical workplaces into workplaces with acceptable working environment. Ms. Shashmurina believes that the decrease in number of critical workplaces results from measures being taken to improve working environment, overhaul of the facilities, replacement of equipment and changes in the approach to workplace conditions special assessment.
