Abstract

Statistics from the International Labor Organization show that at this time the level of both occupational and domestic injuries is equivalent to an epidemic. At the same time, studies by the World Health Organization show that today the death rate from accidents ranks third after deaths from cardiovascular disease and cancer. It is important to note that this situation is typical of both developing and economically developed countries. It is obvious that such a situation leads to both significant social losses and significant economic losses. In our country the level of industrial injuries and electric injuries at electric power enterprises is especially high. At the same time, in recent years the level of occupational injuries in the electricity sector of Ukraine has increased and is characterized by an increase in the number of fatal injuries. Based on this, the development of a methodology to reduce the level of this indicator of production activity of enterprises is an urgent task. The main causes of mortality of men of working age in Ukraine are: - industrial accidents; - industrial poisoning; - industrial injuries. Such cases account for about 30… 35% of all deaths under the age of 40. The study revealed the features of the work performed at the enterprises of the industry, which differ in the organization of the workplace and a significant number of high-risk work. Further analysis of reports on labor protection, acts of investigation of accidents at enterprises revealed a number of frequent specific cases of violation of important provisions of legislation, regulations on labor protection, labor protection and electrical safety. The results of researches of the reasons of injuries in industrial conditions in the field of electric power are systematized. This made it possible to identify the main directions for improving the state of labor protection. Structural and systematic implementation of the identified areas is the basis of the developed methodology for improving the state of occupational injuries at electric power companies of Ukraine.
