Priority - caring for people

Olga Zaichenko, deputy chief of operation of the branch "Cosmodrome" Vostochny "Dalspetsstroy

Priority - caring for people

Construction is a complex organism in which each component is important. Whether it is a technological process, material or technical support. If you try to find a specialist with the widest range of responsibilities among the creators of the cosmodrome, then, of course, this is Olga Anatolievna Zaichenko. From the first days of a large construction on the shoulders of a fragile woman are all the worries about the life and health of builders.

Vast experience of administrative work helps her to create comfortable, almost “home”, conditions for special forces soldiers and employees of contract organizations. On the East, during peak construction periods, about 10 000 people were working at the same time. Whole city!

It's difficult to talk to Olga Anatolyevna - a phone call is heard every 5 minutes. “Try to forget the phone at home - there will be fifty missed calls. It is necessary to solve a lot of questions: to settle business travelers, to extend supply contracts, to ensure timely garbage collection .... ”

I ask: “Is it difficult to work in such a rhythm? When do you relax? When do you find time for a family? ” Smiling, he replied: “It was hard when we rained 2013 on the summer of the year, we couldn’t bring food in time, because the dirt road washed away and the capital road was not built yet! But even then we broke through this “food blockade. (Laughs).

Now Zaichenko subordinates the order of 300 people - employees of dormitories, canteens, a medical department, a department for the operation of shift camps, an administrative and economic service.

On the territory of the Vostochny cosmodrome, near the construction sites, there are 29 shift camps. Modular dormitories and carriages are used for living. Each shift camp has its own canteen, bath and laundry and medical centers, security posts.

The creation of a small town is a troublesome and expensive process. It is necessary to provide for many factors, each meter of area must comply with sanitary and hygienic standards. Of course, all costs are carefully calculated, but in the priority - people. Sometimes Olga Zaichenko faces a difficult choice: to allow financial losses or sacrifice principles?

“How to be if a husband and wife or a young family arrived at the facility already at the cosmodrome, and the rooms or wagons at home are designed for 3, 4, or even 6 people? Of course, in such cases we go to a meeting and provide a separate room - family happiness is more expensive! ”

There were cases when the wedding was celebrated in the rotational town, and the bride was “stolen” from the hostel. Relatives far, who will help to organize a wedding? Of course, Zaichenko. Her brisk, sonorous voice is heard far away, and even men do not dare to argue with the “main in everyday life”. They know that jokes with her are bad. But she also does not give offense to her. “Hello, my crumbs”, - in these kind words the mother care is felt.

In recent years, the spaceport under construction has been visited frequently by managers at various levels, representatives of the media. Special guests should always be pleased with something delicious. The canteen workers have specialties: croissants, buns with poppy seeds, cold and hot snacks. Everyone understands that the construction site is not a resort area, but even in such “field” conditions the guests are met with dignity.

In summer the life of the shift camp comes to life, the grouping of builders increases at the expense of students. For administrative and economic workers this is an additional burden. Children are children.  

Olga Anatolyevna's special pride is the rotational camp of the Vostochny Cosmodrome branch (site No. 10). He appeared here first. At the very beginning of construction, Dalspetsstroy reconstructed the buildings of the missile division. In just a couple of months, dilapidated barracks turned into modern dormitories. Each building has laundry and ironing facilities, and sports grounds are located in the courtyard area.

There is a dining room in every shift camp. At the same time, about a thousand workers sit down at the dinner table. In order not to create queues, the food is organized in several shifts.

"We have cooks of the highest ranks, not worse than the devil. The working day starts at 4 in the morning, and the breakfast for 7 workers should already be ready for 1000. Products are mainly used by domestic, mostly Amur producers. Twice a week - a new supply of food, and dairy products and even more often - 4 times. The diet is very diverse: every day on the menu there is meat, fish, chicken, vegetables, fresh pastry. "

The health of the builders is a matter of particular concern. Regularly at the expense of the enterprise, all employees undergo a medical examination, in a special mobile laboratory fluorographic examination, vaccination against influenza and tick-borne encephalitis are carried out. In addition, before the onset of the "dangerous period", the entire area around the shift camps is subjected to acaricidal treatment.

Work to ensure life is not always visible from the outside, but it is vital. Workers are forced to work in difficult conditions: they are forty-degree frosts in winter and hot summer. Therefore, life must be arranged at the highest level. "Fifty percent of builders work shift work, so our task is not only to feed, accommodate, but also help to adapt for the" watch "period.

Listening to Olga Zaichenko, you understand that the chef or the commandant of the shift camp has invested no less strength and soul in the construction of the cosmodrome than the installer or concrete worker.

Merits and achievements of Olga Zaichenko are marked by many departmental letters and letters of thanks of Spetsstroy of Russia.
