Over the past year about 3 million UAH was given by KHARTSYZSK PIPE PLANT of Metinvest Group to improve conditions of life and work of its employees. Recently doors of the repaired bath of locomotive depot of railway shop, for renovation of which the enterprise invested 540 thousand UAH were open.
Only modern construction materials and equipment were used to repair the premises. Qualified approach allowed creating the necessary comfort to each employee, as well as increasing the operation life of baths. As a result, actually new complex with modern equipment had opened for the railway shop workers.
The last renovation of the sanitary and amenity premises was made in the late 90’s, and was more like a cosmetic rather than a capital one. The moisture often accumulated in the bath, dampness influenced on the floor slabs, amenity premises were obsolete and outdated. Modern renovation provided the opportunity not only to get rid of the problems, but also introduce many new changes.
Old windows and doors are replaced with plastic, walls and floor are revetted with new tile, the boiler is installed, and all communication lines are changed. A fundamentally new premise is created in amenity building – it is a room for drying work clothes. And thanks to the new ventilating system fitted out with the modern equipment, air temperature indoors can now be regulated.
— We even did not expect that in such difficult time for everyone the bath of locomotive depot would be renovated, and at such high level! It’s nice that despite the difficult situation in the region, the company has made every effort for employees to have good and homely living conditions, - Igor Gorbachuk, the head of Railway Shop Service, said.
It became possible to make the capital repair of the sanitary and amenity premises of Railway Shop of KHARTSYZSK PIPE PLANT thanks to the corporate social program called “Working Life”.
— Even in such hard time any project according to the Working Life program on KHARTSYZSK PIPE PLANT has not been stopped. We continue to create worthy conditions for plant workers, and capital repairs of the bath in Railway Shop is one of many good examples that staff working environment is a priority for us, - Roman Tsukurov, the Director for Human Resources and Social Policy of KHARTSYZSK PIPE PLANT, said.
