Welcome Letters 2016
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!
On behalf of the Ministry of Healthcare and Social Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan, I would like to welcome the participants and guests of the International Occupational Safety and Health Conference KIOSH-2016, timed to coincide with Occupational Safety and Health Professional Day.
This year the Occupational Safety and Health Conference is traditionallt held for the sixth time with the participation of interested public authorities, social partners and large industrial enterprises.
On the eve of Occupational Safety Day we pay tribute to the memory of all workers affected at the workplace and call for strengthening the actions for ensuring occupational health and safety of workers.
At present over 300,000 employees work under harmful and hazardous working conditions in the country. More than 1,700 accidents take place at the enterprises every year, three hundred of which are fatal.
In the context of identified problems in response to the instructions of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan within the framework of the Nation’s Plan “100 concrete steps” on the implementation of the fifth institutional reforms the new Labour Code, aimed at providing modern safety management and labour protection system in the enterprises of the republic, was developed in the past year and was put into effect from January 1, 2016.
The main purpose of the Exhibition and Conference is sharing best practices and knowledge in the sphere of occupational and health safety. I hope that the obtained results will be useful to all participants and the proposed recommendations will be applied in practice.
I wish all participants successful work, constructive communication, interesting and useful discussions.

Dear participants of the Conference and Exhibition KIOSH 2016!
On behalf of the Ministry of Investments and Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan let me extend a very warm welcome to You at the 6th Kazakhstan International Occupational Safety and Health Exhibition and Conference KIOSH 2016!
Workplace safety issues have always been and are topical, regardless of the sector of the economy or the industry, and which part of the world they are in. The system of protecting health and safety of employees at work is of high priority and importance, both for employers and for employees themselves.
As we know, in Kazakhstan oil and gas, mining and metallurgical industries, nuclear and chemical industry are the most dynamic industrial sectors and the most important components of the economy. Each of these sectors faces occupational health and industrial safety issues, which in turn confirms that KIOSH platform, which was created six years ago, is just at the right time, up to date and relevant.
I am convinced that KIOSH Conference and Exhibition will give an additional impetus to the positive development in respect of occupational health and safety in Kazakhstan.
I wish all participants of KIOSH 2016 Conference and Exhibition success and establishing mutually beneficial cooperation!
Vice Minister for Investments and Development of
the Republic of Kazakhstan
The quality of working life and labour efficiency are important priorities both for employees and employers.
Employers, taking into account the links between sustainability of enterprises and labour safety issues, understand the importance of constant work in that direction – in the course of current production activities, modernization, innovative technologies and other changes.
In this context the annual conference and exhibition are socially significant, because there is an exchange of relevant information, issues and the latest developments in the sphere of occupational safety and health.
Undoubtedly, the mission of the event is promoting the creation of safe workplaces. All workplaces within any forms of employment must build a common safe working environment with healthy working conditions within the country which ultimately will stimulate productive activities and increase productivity.
I think the employers that are focused on success will participate in discussions within the conference. The partnership in such activities will create the platform for consideration and solution of existing challenges of all aspects in the sphere of labour safety.
I wish you productive work that will be rewarding for each participant!
Deputy Chairman of the National Chamber of
Entrepreneurs of the Republic of Kazakhstan
Distinguished participants of the KIOSH-2016 Conference!
On behalf of numerous employees of the Eurasian Group’s (ERG) entities I would like to congratulate all the participants of the 6th Kazakhstan International Occupational Safety and Health Conference and Exhibition KIOSH-2016 with the World Day for Safety and Health at Work! During these years KIOSH has turned into a unique platform for discussing current issues, sharing experience and finding particular solutions to improve the occupational health and safety management system.
I am sure that KIOSH-2016 will continue the tradition of constructive dialogue and results of the Conference will inspire experts in the occupational health and safety for new projects that improve occupational safety of enterprises.
Eurasian Group actively supports both the KIOSH Conference and the initiative of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) on the World Day for Safety and Health at Work annually. The ILO campaign for 2016 – “Workplace Stress: a collective challenge” - encourages us to strengthen collective efforts to reduce stress situations through elimination of dangerous conditions at the workplace.
On our part, ERG sets a strategic objective - reducing accident rate at work to zero at all enterprises of the Group. For this purpose standards to monitor key risks in accident rate at work are being improved. We transform risk management system at the workplace for specific priority occupations most exposed to accident risks and industrial safety management system at hazardous industrial facilities of the Eurasian Group.
In February, the ERG adopted a new Health, Safety and Environment Policy. We believe that any harm to health of our employees, contractors, visitors and local communities can be prevented and favourable environment of regions where the Group operates can be preserved. The Company demands strong commitment and responsibility in compliance with the Health, Safety and Environment Policy from all employees and contractors of the Eurasian Group.
ERG implements “Luch” programme aimed at improving the effectiveness of Occupational Safety and Health Management Systems. The Project covers such areas as leadership development and communication skills of employees, development and implementation of corporate standards for the Group enterprises, systematic training of employees in self-management techniques of psychophysical condition and developing safe habits, unification of requirements to PPE.
Moreover, we tell about health and safety importance not just to our employees, but also all citizens of Kazakhstan through domestic mass media.
I wish new ideas and their practical implementation in labor protection and industrial safety activities to all participants of the Conference and Exhibition! Exchange of experiences will enable all of us to increase the safety level at our work!

Welcome speech of the Executive Director of the Association of mining and metallurgical enterprises Nicholas Radostovets to the participants of KIOSH
Dear ladies and gentlemen!
Welcome to the 6th Kazakhstan International Exhibition and Conference on occupational safety - KIOSH 2016. This is a landmark event for the mining industry of Kazakhstan. It is important as many enterprises nowadays are modernizing their mining and metallurgical facilities. At the same time, a large number of companies are implementing an active policy of thrift and cost reduction. But such measures should not affect the quality of industrial safety and create a threat to human health in workplace. This is the main rule for top managers of mining corporations that already have learned that taking care of people is above profits. Moreover, this field is properly regulated by the government and therefore no crisis should stop the progress in this direction.
Recently, after an accident in coal mine in Russia, which was immediately suspended, drastic measures on closing the majority of most dangerous mines were proposed. But the field of industrial safety need systematic, daily and long-term activities, as the industry is labor-intensive and socially important, where one-time methods do not work. For instance, last year at industrial sites the number of public inspectors, who monitor the compliance with OS regulations, identify violations and eliminate them, increased significantly. Since January 1st this year the new Labour Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan came into effect. The Labour Code provides for the introduction of manufacturing council on occupational health and safety and technical inspectors instead of public inspectors on labour protection.
First of all, the development in industrial safety in MMC, in my opinion, is that we actively adopt foreign experience, purchase newest equipment and learn how to debug clear vertical and horizontal communication on health protection in mines, mills, mines and factories. In most developed mining countries accidents and emergencies in the production are minimized. This is facilitated by the almost daily instruction and supervision of safety officers. This zero tolerance to non-compliance with safety rules allows you to retain human capital built in years. For this purpose they buy newest technologies and equipment, most of which are represented in our exhibition today.
According to industry trade union, last year 305 accidents occurred at the enterprises of MMC. Sadly, 34 deaths were reported. But these figures are considerably less than of 2014 and shows a positive fracture through the efforts of companies, trade unions and industrial safety regulation. Meanwhile, it is noteworthy that most accidents occur in the backbone enterprises of the industry. Therefore AMME will continue working with major companies in the field of injury reduction and putting industrial safety to the level of the exception of accidents.
I wish all exhibitors productive work at the Conference and Exhibition!
On behalf of the Association of Light Industry Enterprises of the Republic of Kazakhstan I would like to welcome the guests and participants of the 6th Kazakhstan International Conference and Exhibition KIOSH 2016!
The Association of Light Industry Enterprises of the Republic of Kazakhstan brings together textile, sewing, knitwear and footwear companies that provide industrial enterprises of Kazakh market with special protective clothing and footwear for workers in various industries. This special clothing and footwear are an integral part of health and safety issues, which in turn are part of the concept of KIOSH Project. For the sixth consecutive year KIOSH platform proves relevance and urgency of the exhibition, since it is specialized on occupational health and safety.
I am sure that KIOSH 2016 will allow the participants to discuss all topical and pressing issues and find successful solutions to implement them and the platform of the Exhibitions will enable the participants to demonstrate the latest trends and achievements, which in turn, will allow to conclude lucrative and long-term contracts!
I wish you all successful and fruitful work!

Ladies and gentlemen!
On behalf of the members of the National Association of Centers for Occupational Safety and Health in Russia let me greet the participants and guests of the 6th Occupational Safety and Health Conference and Exhibition - KIOSH 2016.
Safe workplaces mean healthy people; it is the key to business success and prestige of the company.
Any legislative proposal in the field of occupational health and safety will have the support of the population if from its content are clear:
• the purpose, set by the developers of the document,
• the benefits for the people from implementation of this law,
• the necessary financial resources for implementation of the law (by-law),
• and what the effect from these changes for the State, the employer and employees.
Any law can be compared with an invention. It has the definite clearly realizable purpose. Useless inventions are not be accepted. And they must be realizable. This applies to all laws and regulations, including laws in the field of Occupational Safety and Health protection.
According to the results of evaluation of working conditions in the organizations, the reasons for harmful and dangerous labor conditions should be identified. To eliminate the reasons generating these harmful and dangerous factors on a nationwide scale, the programs for their reduction or elimination have to be created.
It is reasonable to distinguish existing professions and work types by the risk level. To identify the most dangerous ones, to determine the level of risk and the factors contributing to their appearance. To develop technical and organizational measures to reduce exposure levels of these factors on employees or staff that are in the area of exposure to dangerous or harmful factors of environment and labor process.
Aiming for implementation of these tasks, the national Association of Centers for Occupational Safety and Health in cooperation with the company LaborComplex, under support of: Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Russian Federation, Trading-industrial Chamber of the Russian Federation (Subcommittee on Labor Protection of the Committee of Social Work), Public Council of the Ministry of Labor and social protection of the Russian Federation is opening in 2016 the First International Scientific-Practical Conference “Actual Issues of Labor Protection at the present stage of development and stabilization of the economy”.
Detailed information on all activities of the Association can be found on our website: www.nacot.ru and on the website nacotconf.ru.
I wish all the participants and guests of the conference and exhibition to use actively the opportunities of expanding business cooperation, provided by these events.
I am sure that our conference and the exhibition will become a high day for everyone who creates and maintains safe working conditions in the workplace. Good Luck!
