Soon, regular training will start at the training ground; their purpose is not only to increase the awareness of construction workers in the field of labor protection, but also to develop a safe behavioral model for them. Following this model, the workers scrupulously follow all the instructions, rules and regulations, even when they are not being watched. Thus, the ideas of the SAFECON project will be put into practice.

According to Irina Lugovskaya, SPbGASU Vice-Rector for Foreign Affairs, the university received a training ground equipped with modules for interactive training in methods and techniques of work, which take into account modern labor protection requirements at construction sites of all categories of workers in the construction industry. The training ground will occupy a significant place in university students' training programs. In addition, builders of St. Petersburg, the Leningrad Region and Southeast Finland, students of other universities, and schoolchildren in the process of vocational guidance will be taking training on safety measures here.

Vitaliy Tsaplin noted on the high quality of the work performed: “The comments of the REC UTS specialists and the wishes of the project developers have always met in a friendly manner; they readily came to life at the facility. The training ground is notable for constructive complexity, exclusivity of elements, and novelty of implemented ideas. All employees showed high professionalism. The important components of success were the inspiration and creative approach of Irina Belova, Executive Director of the United Center of Labor Protection Specialists, SRO Association and the SRO Association of Organizations Providing Services in the Field of Labor Protection. The high quality and timely execution is ensured by the Executive Director of CC Expert Murad Ismayilov”.

The NOSTROY Association, a strategic partner of SPbGASU on the SAFECON project, pays great attention to the creation of the training ground. Maria Nasedkina, a NOSTROI representative who was present at the commissioning, said that construction organizations are very interested in creating an interactive environment for training their workers. For this reason, the CEOs of the North-West branch of NOSTROI decided to supplement the landfill with modules for eight more types of construction work.

“This training ground should become a model for the creation of other similar facilities in our country. This method of training will significantly reduce the level of death and injuries of workers in the construction industry,” she said.
