Welcome Letters 2015
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!
On behalf of The Ministry of Healthcare and Social Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan, I am glad to welcome all participants and guests of the 5th Anniversary Kazakhstan International Occupational Safety and Health Conference and Exhibition – KIOSH-2015, which is timed to the World Day for Safety and Health at Work.
During the last years exhibition and related events became a platform for demonstration of the latest achievements, meetings and discussions in all areas of safety human activity.
The conference is an important and relevant event in Kazakhstan, the main goal of which is to decrease the rate of injuries and accidents at a job.
The main topic of the conference is to draw attention of employers and employees of enterprises, companies and government institutions to creation of healthy and safe working conditions.
In the contemporary world, inability to work and absence of an employee come at a high price even in those cases, which are not directly related to manufacturing.
According to the data from Committee on Statistics, the amount of employers with abusive working conditions are 376 thousand people from 1,7 million interviewed.
There are more than two thousand accidents at the enterprises, three hundred of which are with lethal outcome.
It is proved, that risk factors elimination at the place of production or fight against them, prevents or, at least, postpones appearance of injury-risk situations or attachment of life threatening diseases.
We are sure that our Conference will become a place for problems solution in the field of occupational health and safety.
I wish all participants and guests of the Conference fruitful work, new ideas, plans and projects implementation!

The ILO campaign theme for 2015 - "Join in building a culture of prevention on occupational safety and health" - confirms the relevance of the programmes being implemented at our entities. They are aimed at minimizing safety risks in workplaces, improving labour and technological discipline and occupational safety and health culture, including the management's commitment, efficient communications and personal responsibility for safety.
All entities of the Group upgrade behavior-based approaches in the occupational safety and health management system to achieve our strategic goal - reducing a rate of occupational injuries to zero. We are engaged in search and implementation of modern engineering solutions to reduce injury risks in specific workplaces: in open-pit and underground mines, at metallurgy operations and power generation, by transporting products and during construction and assembly works.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!
On behalf of the Members of the National Association of Centers for the Labour Protection of Russia let me welcome the participants and guests of the 5th Kazakhstan International Occupational Safety and Health Conference and Exhibition - KIOSH 2015.
In January 2014 the Federal law of December 28, 2013 No. 426-ФЗ "On special working con-ditions assessment" came into effect.
Special working conditions assessment is a complex of measures on identification of harmful and (or) dangerous production factors of the working environment and evaluation of their influ-ence level on the employees.
As of January 1, 2014 by the Federal law of December 28, 2013 No. 421-ФЗ "On amendments to certain legislative acts in connection with adoption of the Federal law "On special assessment of working conditions", amendments to the labour legislation have been made, which enabled the formation of additional tariffs of the Pension Fund of Russia for privileged pension of employees engaged in harmful and hazardous work conditions and rise in tariff of social insurance Fund for occupational hazards. The regulations laid down in the Federal law undoubtedly are the factor for economic incentives of the employer to ensure normal working conditions, however, a number of other issues related to the implementation of the targets adopted by the regulatory legal acts were not implemented because of the peculiarities of the methodology used for special assessment of working conditions, and its significant difference from the sanitary-hygienic evaluation of working conditions.
According to the results of special assessment, classes (subclasses) of working conditions at workplaces are set, discounts (additions) to the insurance tariff for compulsory social insurance against accidents in production are calculated. The amount of additional contributions to the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation depends on these results.
The development of the Program of import substitution will require employers of the RF to ensure the safety requirements established by technical regulations and standards of the Customs Union. In this situation, the additional costs are inevitable because the standard procedures of the special assessment of working conditions are not harmonized with the standards of the Customs Union and do not provide preparation for change to the risk management methodology.
With the invention of nanotechnology people have not thought about whether these technologies do any harm to the health. At one point it was believed that nanotechnology is harmless. However, in fact it is not. As of today it is proved that the nanoelements used can do harm comparable to the pernicious influence of ordinary substances. The fact is that the nanoelements are much more chemically active and penetrate the human tissues in ways only specific to them. That is why the risk of illness (or even death) for workers in the enterprises that use nanotechnology, is very high. Thus, employers and employees are sometimes not aware of the causes of mass illnesses.
To solve this problem, legislative framework for the protection of labour is currently being improved, new standards and regulations are put in force. Moreover, the development and im-provement of the document database is run not only in the field of nanotechnology, but also ap-plicable to conventional production. It is planned to amend the Labour Code and other regula-tions related to special assessment of workplaces and production control.
Currently the Ministry of Labour is developing the bill "On safety and occupational health", which intends change to the registration of dangerous situations (incidents, injuries), which po-tentially lead. To reduce the risk of occupational diseases and injuries our Association has taken a number of concrete measures to ensure safe working conditions in the plants and in the entities. Detailed information on all activities of the Association can be found on our website: www.nacot.ru.
I wish the participants and guests of the conference and exhibition to use its opportunities for expansion of business cooperation actively.
I am sure that Your conference and exhibition will be a high day for everyone who creates and maintains safe working conditions in the workplace.

On behalf of the RGKP “Republican research institute on labor protection of the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of Population of the Republic of Kazakhstan”, let me welcome participants and guests of the 5th Kazakhstan International Occupational Safety & Health Conference and Exhibition KIOSH 2015.
The object of careful attention of the scientific community should be the preparation of a wide spectrum of preventive measures aimed at decreasing the risk of developing professional and industrially caused diseases or receiving work-related injuries.
Modern science has many approaches, methods and techniques which can and should be used while studying the issues of occupational safety, hygiene and labour protection. A wide-range use of modern information technologies, telecommunication means of collection, storage and transmission of data, is necessary for solving the problems of management and occupational safety.
Today we are going to discuss the achievements of scientific studies in the field of occupational safety, prevention of work-related diseases, ergonomics and labour economics, socio-psychological management methods.
Our goal was to invite representatives of the leading scientific and educational organizations in the area of occupational safety, hygiene and labour protection – esteemed scientists and specialists of the republic - to take part in the work of our session.
Ultimately, all measures concerning occupational safety and labour protection are aimed at protecting lives and health of workers, preventing disabilities and professional pathologies.
