The motto of the year 2015 was Stability, Security and Sustainable Development. The year 2015 was marked by several important events in the operation the The Council of Employees of JSC Antipinsky Refinery.

The Council of Employees carried on regular inspections of the working conditions in the organisational units of JSC Antipinsky Oil Refinery for the purpose of properly observation of the lawful rights and interests of the company employees.
Since 2015, the occupational safety officers appointed in each organisational unit have actively assisted in the inspections and the corrective measures.
In 2015, following the results of 12 inspections initiated by the Sanitation and Housekeeping Committee, 14 non-compliances were identified that was significantly better as compared to the year 2014, when 31 non-compliances were reported. Some of the non-compliances were removed; the remaining non-compliances will be removed after commissioning of new facilities.
Besides, 15 meetings of the Council with the representatives of the company staff and administration were held in 2015 and 18 - in 2014. The reduction of the number of matters of concern for the company staff proves that the Council of Employees successfully performed the tasks for the year 2015 (social issues, raising awareness, improvement of the connections between the employees and the management).

One of the 2015 applications is a request from the employees of the electrical department to replace the uncomfortable workwear.

The Council of the Employees explained to the employees that the existing workwear was developed on the basis of the safety requirements – the material should have a certain density to protect the employee against the electric arc, and the pockets were specially designed small to prevent falling the pocket contents out when bending. Besides, the employees were offered a safe workwear of alternative design. Following the results of consideration of the above issue, a resolution was passed to take the employees’ remarks into account when offering the workwear for 2016.
