Work organization and compliance monitoring of occupational health and safety conditions as well as prevention of occupational injuries are carried out in all branches of IDGC of the North-West as per the Regulations on Occupational Health and Safety Management System.
The main reasons for occupational injuries are:
|Total number of accident victims, people||14||16||14||15||8|
|Total number of fatal cases, people||3||0||1||3||3|
|Injury rate (per 1,000 employees)||0.96||1.086||0.00094||1||0.54|
|Fatality rate (per 1,000 employees)||0.2||0||0.07||0.2||0.2|
As compared to 2013, occupational injury indicators decreased by 1.9 times (the number of victims fell by 47%): there was an ongoing decline in the number of occupational accidents when working at power stations (5 accidents in 2013 vs 2 accidents in 2014) and there were no cases of occupational diseases.
However, despite measures taken, in 2014 three fatal accidents occurred: two — when working at power stations (electric shock); one — road accident (caused by the victim’s careless behavior).
All accidents were investigated internally, with the results reported in the investigation certificates and orders. Based on the results of investigation of each accident, a number of organizational and technical measures was developed.
For the purpose of enhancing effectiveness of the taken measures to prevent occupational accidents, on June 16, 2014, the Board of Directors approved and enabled the Comprehensive Program of JSC IDGC of the North-West on decreasing risks of employees’ and third parties’ injuries at the Company’s power grid facilities in
The Comprehensive Program encompasses the following activities:
In order to increase responsibility of JSC IDGC of the North-West management for occupational accidents, the incentive scheme for the Company’s General Director and senior managers includes a mandatory condition for a quarterly bonus, i.e. achievement of the key performance indicator “Zero occupational fatalities and group accidents with severely injured victims resulting from non-execution (poor execution) of the duties by Company employees”.
Due to fatal accidents caused by electric shock in Q1 and Q3 2014, on September 01, 2014, the Company’s Board of Directors resolved that the key performance indicator “Zero occupational fatalities and group accidents with severely injured victims resulting from non-execution (poor execution) of the duties by Company employees” had not been achieved (Minutes No.164/6 and Minutes No.174/15). Consequently, the quarterly bonuses for Q1 and Q3 2014 were not paid to the General Director, senior managers of the Company’s executive apparatus and senior managers of the branches where there were accidents.
