Welcome Letters 2022

DEAR LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!

On behalf of the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Population of the Republic of Kazakhstan, I am pleased to welcome the participants and guests of the 10th Anniversary International Conference and Exhibition on Occupational Health and Safety KIOSH-2022. In 10 years of its history, KIOSH conference and exhibition has established itself as the only professional business platform where the issues of occupational health and safety are discussed and solved, and best practices and knowledge are exchanged among professionals, business audience and experts. First of all, the conference is designed to attract the attention of employers and employees of enterprises, companies, and government agencies to create healthy and safe working conditions at the workplace. Currently, more than 375,000 employees in Kazakhstan work in harmful and hazardous working conditions. Over 1,300 industrial accidents are registered annually, 200 of which result in death. An Action Plan for safety at work until 2025 is being implemented, according to which the work is being done to improve mechanisms for the prevention of occupational injuries, compulsory insurance against accidents at work, and introduction of a risk-oriented mechanism for providing guarantees to employees engaged in work under hazardous working conditions. We are glad that KIOSH platform will be held in the traditional offline format again, and that it will certainly contribute to the positive dynamics of occupational health and safety in all sectors and spheres of the economy. I wish all the participants, partners and organizers of the conference and exhibition fruitful work, constructive dialogue and effective interaction!

With respect,

Tamara Kasymovna Duissenova

Minister of Labor and Social Protection of Population of the Republic of Kazakhstan

Today, the scientific session, traditional for the Republican Research Institute for Labor Protection and Social Protection of the Population of the Republic of Kazakhstan, reaches the national level, we have initiated the Scientific Forum "Scientific Paradigm of Occupational Safety in the Sphere of Public Administration Transformation". Within the framework of this forum, prominent representatives of the republic present their vision on strengthening scientific implementation in public policy, developing a culture of labor protection.

I believe that this is a significant step in the development of science in the field of labor protection, promotes the exchange of views between scientists from different regions of the country, and maintains a connection between science and practice.

DEAR LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!

On behalf of the Republican Association of Mining and Metallurgical Enterprises (AMME), I am pleased to welcome the participants of the Kazakhstan International Occupational Safety and Health Conference and Exhibition KIOSH 2022 10th anniversary! For the tenth time, KIOSH gathers representatives of government agencies, employers, business circles and trade unions on its site, creates a favorable atmosphere for productive dialogue, establishing new ties, exchanging opinions and experience, demonstrating current trends and innovations in the field of occupational safety and health. The anniversary KIOSH International Conference is taking place after a long break related to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has become a global challenge for the occupational safety system, clearly showed that its strengthening plays a crucial role in maintaining normal working conditions, ensuring the safety and health of workers. Issues of labor protection and safety, preservation of life and health of workers are a priority in the Kazakhstan mining industry. In order to reduce injuries and accidents at work to zero, companies carry out technical re-equipment, introduce best practices in mining, transform business models, improve the occupational safety and health management system, and develop integrated production control. Among the key areas of the Sectoral Agreement signed between the Ministry of Industry and Infrastructure Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan, AMME and the sectoral trade unions of the mining and metallurgical industry of the Republic for 2022-2024, as well as the Sectoral Agreement between the Ministry of Industry and Infrastructure Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan, employers and sectoral trade unions of the coal industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan for 2021-2023, the provision of occupational safety and health at enterprises is defined. Within the framework of the agreements, in order to preserve the life and health of employees, employers and trade unions provide for joint actions to improve the conditions of occupational safety and health, prevent occupational injuries and industrial diseases, organize internal and public control over the state of occupational safety and health in the workplace. The issues of creating a safe and healthy production environment are an integral part of collective agreements adopted at enterprises on the basis of Industry agreements. In the context of the new requirements of the industry regarding the revision of technologies, equipment upgrades, and the entry of the industry into the digitalization mode, AMME is systematically working to improve the regulatory framework in the field of industrial safety, harmonizing it with international standards together with mining enterprises. I am sure that the discussion of these and other issues at the conference site will contribute to the emergence of new productive ideas, will make a significant contribution to the further development of the occupational safety management system. I wish all participants of the conference and exhibition successful fruitful work, constructive dialogue and achievement of their goals!

Sincerely,

Radostovets Nikolay Vladimirovich

Executive Director of the Republican Association of Mining and Metallurgical Enterprises 


 DEAR ORGANIZERS, PARTICIPANTS AND GUESTS OF THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITION KIOSH - 2022!

Quality of work life and saving labor resources are important priorities for both the employee and the employer. For several years, KIOSH has been playing the role of a socially significant event, the main goal of which is to promote the creation of safe jobs. Today any socially oriented enterprise is primarily interested in reducing the level of accidents, injuries, production-related and occupational morbidity of an employee. At the same time, against the background of a decrease in the overall level of occupational injuries in recent years, the state of working conditions and labor protection in the republic cannot be considered satisfactory - the level of occupational risks remains high, there are episodes of injuries in the mining and metallurgical and agroindustrial complexes, in the construction industry. We firmly believe that measures to ensure safe working conditions for employees should be systematic, daily and long-term. It is important to note that in the new General Agreement for 2021-2023, the social partners supported our proposals to include a rule on the introduction of new methods for identifying and analyzing industrial injuries and occupational diseases. The Action Plan for its implementation reflects trade union initiatives for the widespread creation of works councils and their effective functioning, material incentives for technical labor protection inspectors in the amount of at least the minimum wage. The functioning mechanism of public control today consisting of 11,696 works councils and 17,994 technical labor inspectors, contributes to the development in society of zero tolerance for noncompliance with labor protection rules and allows preserving human capital which has been built up over the years. We sincerely hope that the unique dialogue platform KIOSH-2022 will make another contribution to the development of the labor protection system in our country through joint discussions of pressing issues, identification of successful ways to solve them, and exchange of experience. I wish all of us new achievements and success in the field of safety and labor protection!

Sincerely,

Satybaldy Dauletalin

Chairman of the Federation of Trade Unions of the Republic of Kazakhstan

On behalf of the multi-thousand staff of ArcelorMittal Temirtau JSC, I am glad to welcome the participants and guests of the 10th Anniversary Kazakhstan International Conference and Exhibition on Occupational Health and Industrial Safety "KIOSH 2022"! This is the tenth time we are gathering at the KIOSH site to discuss purposeful work to prevent injuries, create safe working conditions, and introduce best practices to identify and prevent industrial risks. The mining and metallurgical industries are an industry with a high level of occupational risk. More than thirty-five thousand people work at ArcelorMittal Temirtau's enterprises throughout Kazakhstan. Every day, every minute, we must pay special attention to safety. And the annual Labor Safety Day is very important, because it gives us the opportunity to confidently declare that there is nothing more important than health and safety. It is necessary to create the right culture, and this will require effort, attention and a commitment to zero injuries. Management must pay special attention to safety and actively promote it within their teams in order to change the mindset that is critical to achieving our goal of achieving zero fatal accidents, and eventually zero accidents. Over the years of its work, KIOSH has become a business platform that represents the trends and prospects for the development of the industrial safety and labor protection market in Kazakhstan. This platform provides excellent opportunities for exchanging experience, getting acquainted with the latest achievements in the field of industrial safety from the world's leading manufacturers, and establishing partnerships. I believe that participation in this conference and exhibition makes a significant contribution to the creation of safe workplaces, improves the safety culture, allows you to demonstrate innovative technologies and solutions, conclude long-term contracts, and the results of KIOSH work will open up new prospects for applying the achievements of modern technologies and labor protection systems and industrial safety.

DEAR PARTICIPANTS OF THE EXHIBITION AND CONFERENCE KIOSH 2022!

On behalf of everyone at ERG, I would like to extend my best wishes on the World Day of Occupational Safety and Health! I am pleased that after a long break we can finally get together in-person and share experience in the field of occupational and industrial safety. In recent years, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have all had to reconsider how best to approach this subject. The pandemic and its aftermath have highlighted many shortcomings in current health and safety practices, and encouraged both the general public and business leaders to pay closer attention to health in the workplace and disease prevention. At ERG, we have learned to respond to situations quickly, carry out swift and effective decisionmaking, implement preventive measures and look out for each other. There is no doubt that the last two years have had a significant impact on the entire field of occupational safety, and it is important that we learn from this experience as much as possible to benefit future work in the area. Based in Luxembourg, with the majority of our operations in Kazakhstan, ERG brings together about 70 thousand employees across four continents. We are all united by our common corporate values - Safety, Unity, Responsibility, Efficiency and Development, of which safety is a key priority. Today we continue to strive towards our goal of achieving ‘Zero Harm’, and for this we are developing a culture of safe behavior at all levels of the Group. We are improving our existing occupational health and safety management systems by introducing modern digital solutions and the latest personal protective equipment, and by paying close attention to training and leadership in the field of occupational health and safety. I hope that all participants of this conference have an enjoyable and productive few days and that this will be a positive step in the development of occupational safety in Kazakhstan and at all companies present here!

Sincerely,

Serik Shakhazhanov

DEAR PARTICIPANTS OF THE EXHIBITION AND CONFERENCE KIOSH 2022!

Let me greet you on behalf of many thousands of Kazzinc employees. Thank you for the opportunity to be partners of this outstanding event which brings together governmental authorities, professional associations, business people and occupational safety and labor protection experts. KIOSH proved to be the most prestigious platform for productive dialog and exchange of views. Safety aspects are particularly topical for mining and metallurgical industry where thousands of workers are exposed to multiple risk factors. That makes managing hazards to provide safe workplace even more critical today. These processes must be up to date to ensure safe work practices keep pace with the progress and higher production targets. KIOSH philosophy is close to Kazzinc where personnel safety is the first priority. People contributing to our shared goals have long been defined as our top value. A few years ago SafeWork Program has been implemented at Kazzinc main and auxiliary operations to ensure safe working conditions for everyone and minimize the risk of occupational injuries. This program is constantly updated and now its new version ‘SafeWork 2.0’ is being rolled out. SafeWork 2.0 meets the most recent trends of the industry. Kazzinc’s example can demonstrate that time and efforts put in risk minimization is never too much and it always pays off. We wish all the KIOSH-2022 participants enjoy their productive time, successful projects and always safe work!

Sincerely,

Alexander Khmelev

DEAR PARTICIPANTS OF THE EXHIBITION AND CONFERENCE KIOSH 2022!

I am glad to welcome you to the international conference KIOSH-2022, which is now held in the usual face-to-face format. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to hold such necessary events. KIOSH-2022 is a very important platform where professionals in the field of health and safety have the opportunity to share practical experience in the implementation of projects, initiatives aimed at protecting life and health of people in the workplace. Safety has always been and will always be a value for KAZ Minerals. Since the establishment of the Company, we have been building our operational and management processes in line with the best industry practices in HSE. One of the important areas for us is risk management. A risk-based approach to decision-making in all aspects of activity, at all stages of the life cycle of a company or a project from a conceptual idea, construction, operations and up to closure, is the key to safe and efficient operations. The success of the risk management process depends on the timeliness and quality of decisions made. This is reflected in our Company Vision: “All our people make the right decisions to ensure safe and efficient operations.” The risk management process should be incorporated into all levels of decision making, from identifying hazards in the workplace to formulating the Company's development strategy. That is why we are establishing a layered HSE risk management system where all layers are integrated between each other. I am convinced that within the framework of the sessions and meetings during the conference, each participant will receive a lot of useful information. We are open and always welcome the exchange of experience, ideas in the field of industrial safety and labor protection. I wish all of us fruitful work within the framework of the Conference.

Sincerely,

Timur Alimbekov

Health and Safety Manager AZ Minerals Group
