Development of the “Sports infrastructure operations engineer" professional standard

Russian Federation places high priority on the development of mass and professional sports, and promoting a healthy lifestyle among the citizens.

The international-level sporting events that took place in Russia in recent years became a powerful driver for the development of sports infrastructure. We mean the 2013 XXVII World Summer Universiade in Kazan, the 2014 XXII Olympic Winter Games and XI Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi, as well as the upcoming   2018 World Cup, which will be held in 10 cities of the Russian Federation.

In the light of these events, the state purposefully   solves these tasks,     creating innovative sports facilities, upgrading the existing facilities, developing the infrastructure, to ensure that the conditions meet the international requirements for the stay of sports delegations.

In accordance with the data of the federal statistical monitoring for 2014 (form No. 1-FK) & nbsp; on the territory of Russian Federation operates & nbsp; 276,652 sports facilities, including & nbsp; 46 football arenas,   383 track and field venues,   537 indoor sports facilities with artificial ice,   4956 swimming pools, 1959 stadiums with stands for 1,500 seats or more.   High level of comfort and safety for all visitors must be provided at all sports facilities.

In accordance with the Federal Law of December 4, 2007 N 329-FZ (as amended on November 3, 2015) "On Physical Culture and Sport in the Russian Federation", sports facilities are classified as objects of social infrastructure. The owners of sports facilities provide appropriate technical equipment for venues where physical education or sports events take place, in accordance with the technical regulations, national standards, norms, rules and requirements established by state control (supervision) bodies, and with sanitary rules, and are liable under the legislation of the Russian Federation for causing harm to life or health of persons engaged in physical education and sport activities at such facilities.

Sports infrastructure facilities can be noted for a large number of high-tech equipment, as & nbsp; these venues have been engineered and constructed for sports activities and (or) sports events. This is a whole complex of various systems: refrigeration, ventilation, security, power supply and uninterrupted power supply systems, communications, media systems,   and many others.

Efficient operation of modern sports facilities   is impossible without qualified personnel who have engineering training, knowledge of economics and management methods, and information technology.

Currently, there are no requirements or characteristics of the position of the sports facility maintenance and operations specialist in official documents: the section "Qualification Characteristics of Employee Positions in the Field of Physical Culture and Sports" of the Unified Qualification Guide for the Positions of Managers, Specialists, and Employees, approved by Order of the Ministry of Health and Social Development of Russia of August 15, 2011 No. 916n, & nbsp; sections "Manager Positions", "Specialist Positions".  

Standardizing the activities of an engineer who operates sports infrastructure facilities at the national will level will help ensure safe and rational operation of sports infrastructure facilities, the uninterrupted operation of technological equipment, timely repairs, and the safety of people involved in physical education and sports.  

This standard has been prepared pursuant to the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation of 05.07.2012 No. 597 “On measures for the implementation of state social policy”, Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of January 22, 2013 N 23 “On the Rules for the Development, Approval and Application of Professional Standards”; Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of March 31, 2014 No. 487-r “On approval of a comprehensive plan of measures for the development of professional standards, their independent professional and social expertise and application for 2014 - 2016”, and orders of the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Russian Federation dated April 12, 2013 No. 147n, dated April 12, 2013 No. 148n and dated   April 29, 2013 No. 170n.

Development  of the professional standard or the job of an operations and maintenance engineer of a sports infrastructure facility will allow   to select qualified personnel on the labor market that meets the assigned functional task, to determine evaluation criteria when choosing personnel, and as a whole, to contribute to the improving the quality of work.

The professional standard is developed to account for the opinions of the industry representatives, is updated and designed to follow the line of everyday work, detailed by qualification levels, job functions and activities.
