UTMN Polytechnic School Starts a New Project

Polytechnic School 6 April 2018
UTMN Polytechnic School has launched a new programme of supplementary professional education – Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Management, realized in a partnership with PJSC Gazprom Neft and PJSC SIBUR Holding. 

The programme aims to provide managers and specialists with complex training in various spheres and to develop management and professional competencies in the sphere of health, safety and environment. The authors of the programme present it as “a completely new format for a joint educational project in the spheres of HSE”. One of the programme authors and the Director of the Polytechnic School, Mikhail Pisarev, shared his view on the project:

“The programme draws from all the strengths of our partners who will take an active part in its realization and provide us with experts to hold trainings and workshops. These include the experiences and aspirations of our industrial partners (SIBUR and Gazprom Neft), the best international models demonstrated by invited providers as well as UTMN’s strength in social and humanitarian aspects such as the psychology of safety, conflictology and the culture of safe behavior, to name but a few.

The most active managers from Gazprom Neft and SIBUR’s subsidiaries, who have both the desire and opportunity to change their companies for the better and implement the best international standards in them, will become the first students of the programme. We hope that these people will become ambassadors of changes and help to promote safe working practices in their companies”. 

SIBUR and Gazprom’s representatives expressed their agreement with Mikhail Pisarev’s ideas. 

“Business can’t prosper without safety being a priority for the company, and the key to the development of safety is qualified specialists. That is why SIBUR, Gazprom Neft and the University of Tyumen have developed this joint programme, based on the world’s best practices, the experience of Russian companies and our own findings in the sphere of HSE management.

We will mainly send our dedicated experts to undergo the Polytechnic School’s training. We expect them to obtain advanced knowledge and experience. We also hope to receive feedback from students for further improvement of the programme,” said Vladimir Kondratenko, manager at the SIBUR Corporate University. 

“We want to upgrade our specialists and teach them a complex approach. We also hope that they will bring transformations to our company. Gazprom Neft sets itself very ambitious goals, and to reach them we need people with new knowledge and competencies. We believe the new complex programme will contribute to achieving our aims.

The company sent high-level specialists to this training, including our senior engineer, deputy director general, workshop manager, production manager… Our management is banking on specialists from the production line, as it is they who deal with people and we want them to make our working process as safe as possible,” said Tatiana Salamatova, head of the programmes for personnel training and safety culture at the department of HSE, Gazprom Neft.

Speaking of this, the Polytechnic School’s Director has challenging plans: “Currently, the programme aims to teach advanced skills and practices to working, experienced specialists. But we are already thinking of launching a masters programme based on the same principles but aimed at the world-class training of new HSE specialists”.
