The labour Ministry has agreed to allow women to engage in prohibited occupations in that case, if the employer ensures safety. About it reports “Interfax” with reference to the Federation of independent trade unions of Russia (FNPR).

According to chief technical inspector of the Federation Alexey Bezukhova, the updated list is forbidden for women professions paragraph on security assurances should come into force from 2021.

He noted that the old list of works with harmful factors of production was adopted nearly 20 years ago and didn’t give the rights to women working in industries where there is a threat to reproductive health.

Currently, as emphasized by Bezhukov, the document has lost its relevance due to automation and the development of technologies that substantially reduce the risk of injury to workers.

In early June it was reported that the Ministry of labor will review the list of 456 types of jobs closed to women in Russia, and will prepare a new list of the 98 occupations.

So, women can drive trucks, serve on the ship, working typists trains, repair cars and do other professions that were previously prohibited.
