#LiveSafely: caring for the future

Safety is one of the five values of our company. To avoid risks and prevent accidents when dealing with electricity, it is important to follow rules. Our future and the future of our children depends on each of us. That's why we regularly conduct #LiveSafely lessons that help forming good habits from an early age.

Following the results of the 2023-2024 school year, specialists of PJSC EL5-Energo in the regions where the company operates conducted 23 training lessons on the rules of safe handling of electricity for more than 1,000 schoolchildren. The classes were held as part of the internal corporate project “Live Safely. Manage risks" in schools in Stavropol Territory, Sverdlovsk, Murmansk, Tver and Rostov regions.

In a playful way, children learned about how to properly handle electricity, comply with energy safety rules, and use energy-efficient technologies. Together with their coaches, the children learned to anticipate and predict dangerous situations, coming up with the ways to avoid them, adopting a culture of risk-oriented behavior.

The coaches who conducted the lessons for the children are current employees of PJSC EL5-Energo, who know first-hand the importance of safe handling of electricity. In order to convey difficult information in a language understandable to schoolchildren, they received special training in child psychology and methodology of teaching minors.

The main goal of the project “Live Safely. Manage risks” is to prevent cases of children injuries associated with the use of electrical appliances and to instill a conscious and responsible approach to the use of electricity in children.

In addition, the company’s specialists conduct specific lessons on safe behavior on the water, where they remind children that swimming and boating near hydraulic structures of power plants is prohibited and that there are the dangers that lurk near the discharge canals of the power plants.

In the summer, EL5-Energo health and safety specialists will continue the “Live Safely. Manage risks” project in school camps, because it is during the holidays that children have more free time, whereas their curiosity can provoke unforeseen situations when using electrical appliances carelessly.
