In Irshava district boilers were manufactured without design documentation
During an unscheduled inspection, caused by the recent explosion of water heater boiler in Kyiv region, experts of the territorial administration of the State Committee of Ukraine for Industrial Safety, Labor Protection and Mining Control in Transcarpathian region studied the situation with the manufacturing of such products at "Ilnytsya mechanical welding equipment plant" PJSC in Irshava district.
According to the Chief Inspector of the territorial administration Igor KOS, the inspection showed the presence of a number of gross violations of regulations on labor protection and industrial safety.
Among the major ones are manufacturing boilers without design documentation, lack of certified welding technology in the manufacture of products, absence of boilers passports, from which consumers could obtain the necessary information on the safety and functionality of the product. Also the management of the "Ilnytsya mechanical welding equipment plant" PJSC have not obtained a permit to manufacture the equipment of increased risk.
As a result, the products of Ilnytsya "craftsmen" were not even equipped with pressure gauges and safety devices in the event of excess pressure and temperature. So it is not surprising that following the results of the inspection, Territorial Administration inspectors were forced to ban the production of boilers. In addition, the administrative penalty in the form of a fine was imposed on the chairman of "Ilnytsya mechanical welding equipment plant" PJSC - informed the State Committee of Ukraine for Industrial Safety, Labor Protection and Mining Control in Transcarpathian region.
