News from projects and regions
Gazprom Dobycha Noyabrsk is conducting the first changeover of shift personnel at the fields located in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area and the Kamchatka Territory since the introduction of a three-month period of shift work and additional anti-epidemic measures.
Today, the first groups of employees arrived in Noyabrsk carrying medical certificates with negative test results for the coronavirus. Prior to starting work, the shift personnel will have a 14-day quarantine period under close medical monitoring at the places of temporary accommodation in Noyabrsk.
The newly-arrived shift workers will be isolated in four hotels. They will be provided with personal protective equipment and hot meals for the entire period of isolation.
All employees have their body temperature measured on arriving at hotel
A repeat COVID-19 test will be performed on the 12th day of medical observation. Employees will be allowed to work only if both of their coronavirus tests give negative results. The shift personnel will be brought from the place of medical observation to production facilities by corporate vehicles, with all the necessary epidemiological safety precautions taken. On May 29, the shift workers will start performing their duties in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area.
The same scheme was used to bring the shift personnel to the Kamchatka Peninsula. On May 14, the personnel were accommodated for temporary stay at the Geizer hotel in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, and they will be brought for their shift work to the field on May 28.
Additional preventive anti-epidemic measures were introduced into the shift personnel rotation process in order to preserve the health of workers and make sure that the production process remains safe and uninterrupted. The new scheme for arranging shift work complies with all recommendations of the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor) regarding the prevention of the spread of the coronavirus.
