IDGC of Centre - Bryanskenergo division summed up the carried out by power engineers in the region in anticipation of summer holidays "Week of Energy Safety". This social project is part of IDGC of Centre’s Program for the prevention of electrical injuries at the company’s power facilities, involving large-scale explanatory work among the population. Its purpose is to prevent children’s electrical injuries among schoolchildren and school teachers.
During the "Week of Energy Safety" experts of the branch organized in schools of the Bryansk region a series of methodological studies for teachers of junior and middle schools. They were in total attended by over three hundred teachers. The power engineers told them about the rules of behaviour near power facilities and the dangers of electricity, organized workshops on resuscitation affected by the action of electric current on a simulator "Gosha" and demonstrated educational presentations, videos and cartoons.
During the "Week of Energy Safety" Bryanskenergo’s employees participated in the meeting of heads of country health camps. They presented them with measures to prevent children’s injuries, which should be used in the summer. During the meeting it was agreed to hold classes on energy safety by power engineers in the country health camps throughout the summer. And at the end of it the power engineers gave the directors of the camps disks with guidelines on electrical and thematic visual aids that would help kids learn the material faster.
During the "Week of Energy Safety" Bryanskenergo’s experts also interacted actively regional offices of EMERCOM and Ministry of Internal Affairs. These agencies also collaborate with schools of the region, conducting classes with schoolchildren in their areas of activity. The power engineers also provided them with themed aids for the prevention of children’s electrical injuries for distribution in schools of the region, children's recreation camps, commissions for cases of minors and social shelters.
Throughout the entire period of the campaign information on how to properly use electrical appliances and behave near power facilities was published in the electronic and print media of the region.
"IDGC of Centre - Bryanskenergo division pays great attention to the prevention of children’s electrical injuries. In the framework of the Program to reduce risks of injury to third parties at power facilities the branch’s employees regularly conduct electrical safety lessons in schools of the Bryansk region," stressed Deputy General Director of IDGC of Centre - Bryanskenergo division director Roman Stefanov. "Distribution of visual aids in the general educational institutions in the city of Bryansk and Bryansk region, as well as suburban health camps, should help prevent the occurrence of electrical injuries among children."
