Forty percent of Urals employees working in unsanitary and unsafe conditions

Forty percent of employees in the Urals Federal District are working in conditions that do not meet the sanitary and hygienic requirements, a recent report revealed.

Additionally, working environments within that same forty percent of the district have what is considered to be a high number of industrial breakdowns and accidents, Ural Business Consulting reports.

Deputy Plenipotentiary Representative of Russian Federation President in the Urals Federal District Andrei Kolyadin revealed the startling numbers at a recent meeting.

"The State Labor Inspection must put its foot down. Given the circumstances, our trade unions and organizations could be more active. The trade unions would contribute significantly to improving the situation around production conflicts if, for example, they ensured control and ongoing monitoring of the problem enterprises up to the moment when they get trade unions of their own," Kolyadin said, Ural Business Consulting reports.
