UrFU develops system to implement industrial worker standards

Ural Federal University's Graduate School of Engineering recently developed a roadmap for the creation of a national system of competencies and qualifications that would work with the government to create a professional standard for industrial workers.

The project would create professional standards among employees of industrial enterprises, including requirements for employers to create competencies, education, self-development opportunities and a system of admission of migrants to the national labor market.

In developing the standards, the university worked with the MI Kalinin machine-building plant to form a working group among employees of the company, including media professionals, line managers, members of the occupational health services sector and personnel services.

The group launched a professional public discussion of the draft standard, and the public is invited to debate the results of the joint work on Oct. 21 at the Higher School of Engineering.
