According to Head of the Office of Occupational Safety and Production Control Oleg Golubev, holding the Safety Day in the branch offices is a traditional event in the execution of the "Program to reduce the risks of injury of IDGC of Centre. Work of power engineers involves risks, so it is important to ensure the safety of their own labour. For example, in the branch in 2015 it is planned to spend about 160 thousand rubles to equip safety rooms, traffic safety offices, classrooms with technical means, regulatory documents, training aids and simulation devices (software simulators, models, visual aids, posters, videos)."
