Uralkali Opens New Underground First Aid Point at Berezniki-4

Uralkali Opens New Underground First Aid Point at Berezniki-4

Uralkali has opened a new underground first aid point in the Berezniki-4 mine. The project was developed by specialists from Uralkali’s design and construction department. The metal shell was built in 2012 by workers from the Berezniki mine construction unit. The walls, roof, utilities and the interior were installed by a contractor.

Paramedics are available round-the-clock at the underground first aid point, which measures 150m2. Their duties include initial examinations, ambulatory patient care, employee health consultations, first aid and on-site emergency response in mining areas, if required. In addition, preparatory check-ups are held in the treatment rooms, which take place prior to periodical medical examinations.

Nikolay Kopenin, Deputy Chief Engineer for Technology at Berezniki-4, commented:

The new premises have been built in compliance with safety requirements. Explosion-proof lamps, switches and other devices were used to fit out the facility. The premises are equipped with ventilation and are located near the No.3 mine shaft, which allows patients to be brought out of the mine very quickly.

Marina Drobysheva, Head of Uralkali’s Social Department, added:

Health care is one of the Company’s key priorities. Responsive and qualified medical assistance is particularly important in the mine’s potentially dangerous conditions. Uralkali pays attention to maintaining the technical equipment in its 24-hour underground first aid points, so that qualified paramedics are able to help unwell employees at any point.
