Representatives of Oblast Administration, Shareholders, Managers and Specialists of the Company’s Moscow Office and its Regional Divisions in Russia and Kazakhstan, Managers and Specialists of Contractors and entities-partners of Caspian Pipeline Consortium participate in the function. In total, about 600 persons have arrived for the function.

This year, the Safety Day has a thematic title of "Sarmatian Gold": the function aimed at boosting motivation of personnel of CPC, Consortium’s partners and contractors in health, safety and environmental protection (HSE), and it immerses all guests and participants in the centuries-old history of Astrakhan Oblast.

The scientists from Astrakhan reserve museum rendered their help to the organizers in preparation of the function. They consulted in the development of the historical narrative, the game route for participants and guests, and the design of the Safety Day, including numerous photo areas.

- Astrakhan has always been an iconic location of meeting between representatives of various civilizations, traditions and cultures. We too have come here today on an important mission, as bearers of our culture – Safe Work Culture, - noted CPC General Director Nikolay Gorban at the opening.

The Consortium’s Head emphasized that CPC was one of the first in Russia to join the international initiative of Vision Zero. Based on practical experience of CPC, its Shareholder Companies and the results of an independent expert review, an HSE Strategic Plan for 2022 - 2024 has been developed and is being implemented successfully.2_5193077466201075763.jpg

Twenty-four teams representing various subdivisions of the Consortium, its contractors and partner companies from both countries crossed by Tengiz-Novorossiysk Crude Pipeline, take part in the competition for knowledge and practical application of occupational safety rules in various fields.

A strict jury assesses the contestants' general theoretical knowledge of occupational safety, ability to conduct an investigation of job-related incidents and identify root causes, issue correct work permits, identify potential risks prior to work, develop compensatory actions to exclude the identified risks. Transport safety and road traffic rules, response to emergency, CPC Life Saving Rules, environmental safety basics, etc., have become other topics of the competition program.

Thanks to close interaction between the Management and staff, concurrently with checking the knowledge of existing regulations and boosting personnel motivation, all participants demonstrate by personal example their commitment to safe operation at the Consortium’s facilities.

The Safety Day will traditionally end with summarizing the results of the competition and awarding prizes to the winners.
