Amendments to the legislation on industrial safety

Developers of hazardous industrial facilities must take additional vocational training in industrial safety and undergo an assessment every 5 years

This concerns employees (including senior managers) engaged in the construction or repair of such facility or servicing of technical devices used at a hazardous industrial facility. The categories of such employees will be determined by the Russian Government.

The initial assessment of employees in industrial safety is to be conducted not later than one month after an employee is appointed to the relevant position.

(Federal Law No. 271-FZ ‘On amending certain items of Russian legislation as regards confirmation of the skills of employees of hazardous industrial facilities, water development facilities and electricity generating facilities’ dated 29 July 2018)
