Additionally, it was noted that there were medical centres in the company's business units. 

The company took first place in the Financing Measures to Improve Working Conditions and Occupational Health category due to its work to ensure high-quality working conditions. Loading and unloading racks at the Angarsk oil loading section were equipped with safety systems to prevent workers from falling. Such systems were developed, designed and installed at the service areas of overhead cranes in mainline pump houses of oil pumping stations.

The company won in the Provision of Medical Care category with a project for construction of health posts in the districts of Irkutsk Region affected by the large-scale flood of 2019. In less than a year, the company built 10 modern health posts in three districts of the region: Tulunsky, Nizhneudinsky and Tayshetsky. Thanks to the project implementation, residents of remote settlements of Irkutsk Region will be able to receive medical care according to modern standards.

The contest has been held by the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation since 2017.
