DEZEGA has sponsored the nationwide children drawing contest "Labor protection through the children’s eyes-2020". The competition is about 10 years old. Since 2015, the editorial team of the "Labor Protection" magazine has organized and conducted the contest. Also it is supported by the State Labor Service of Ukraine. Traditionally, this event is held on Labor Protection Day in Ukraine – April 28, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the final program had to be postponed.
The contest consists of two stages. The children from 6 to 18 years old can take part in it. In total, more than 10 thousand drawings from all over the country were sent to the competition. The final included 216 works from 24 regions of Ukraine. The winners of the 2nd stage were nine children, whose drawings won prizes in three age categories (6-10, 11-14, 15-18 years old). The finalists received medals, diplomas and valuable prizes.
Due to work, some daily routine and problems, adults neglect safety rules and forget that children and relatives are waiting for them at home. As an example of this, very often we have to deal with a contemptuous disregard of the self-rescuers accounting in mines, carelessness of safety rules in coal mines for training miners the donning procedure into the SCSRs, as well as performance of mining operations without self-contained self-rescuers. Perhaps with the help of children, we will be able to reach out to the hearts of those responsible for the development and observance of labor protection rules and increase the safety of workers throughout Ukraine and even around the world.
