Dear participants of the Conference,
I would like to greet you at the second international conference on occupational safety and health – KIOSH, which is dedicated to the World Safety Day.
According to reports of the World Health Organization (WHO) annually 2.3 mln men and women die in occupational accidents or from professional deceases, the global Gross Domestic Product reduces by 4% due to bad working conditions and such accidents. Thus, even in peace about 5000 people die on the planet each year.
The idea of the International Safety Day comes from the Day of the Died Workers Commemoration, which was held for the first time by American and Canadian workers in 1989 to commemorate the workers who died or was injured in incidents at work. That is why the WHO decided to make April 28 the International Safety Day with the objective to support enhancement of the safety and hygiene culture around the world.
In 3M we fully support the initiative of the KIOSH organizers, which corresponds with the WHO’s objectives, and within the frameworks of the measures dedicated to the International Safety Day we actively participate in roundtables and the exhibition. It is very important that such meetings are held with participation of three parties: with representatives of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan, industrial companies, as well as scientists, specialists and representatives of the leading companies producing Personal Protection Equipment – all who can make labor conditions safer and more comfortable.
With joint efforts we can ensure safety.

President, Kazakhstan Light Industry Association
On behalf of Kazakhmys Group I’m glad to greet you at the second Kazakhstan International Conference on Industrial Safety. Reduction of occupational injuries and illnesses level, and improvement of occupational safety are priority targets of our production activities.
Over the past year since the last conference we, in our company, have performed massive work in the area of occupational health and safety. For us it was quite an intense and fruitful period. In each team and at each business unit we endeavored to direct maximum effort towards improvement of the health and safety conditions. Our purpose is to ensure clear understanding that observance of health and safety rules and standards is a day-to-day duty of everyone at his workplace. We, in our company, know what awareness is – it is a long and complex process, which requires thought through comprehensive solutions and involvement of all employees therein.
We know where we are at today in the safe production management process. We are confident that occurrence of fatalities is unacceptable and that all accidents are preventable. Accordingly Kazakhmys makes substantial investments into sustaining and improving of occupational health and safety programmes. Our dedication to achieving zero injury level we expressed in a long-term project with a symbolical name – “Омir” (“Life”), aimed at creating a high level safety culture.
First of all it should be noted that we have started to focus not only on organizational factors, on modernization of equipment and production process, which in itself is very important, but also on less tangible and measurable factors, such as change in behavior, increase in responsibility and commitment in regards to health and safety requirements and standards.
I want to thank all those who organized this conference for provided opportunity of communication and fruitful exchange of experience on this extremely important topic and wish all participants of the conference successful work!

The KIOSH Conference and Exhibition is one of events of high priority arranged by our company.

I am sure that the KIOSH-2012 Conference and Exhibition will allow all the participants to discuss the most significant and urgent issues for utmost development of the trend on occupational safety and health.
