Long-standing positive experience shows great importance of International Forum on Industrial Safety. This Forum is becoming a very significant industrial event unifying key international experts, representatives from different industrial sectors, state supervision agencies and intergovernmental organizations. Participation in this event is a great opportunity to share experience in the field of man-made accidents and natural disasters prevention and response, industrial and labor safety practices implementation.
«All over the Forum I discussed with other specialists future activities arising from the problems mentioned here. At the moment the Forum is very much fixed on problems with industrial safety in Russia and neighboring countries like Kazakhstan, Belorussia and so on. But we need to open it more for international standards.
Nearly every presentation was to some extent interesting for me, for example the methodologies for risk assessment, because this is also the topic in European Union constraints. But also the topics which are far away from problem fields in Germany, problems with pipelines, for instance. These topics are really new for me, and normally, I didn’t have knowledge about this.
The organizational level of event was very high and I don’t want to complaint anything. I have one proposal concerning information transfer – presentation interpretation by two interpreters is not enough. I would like also to have presentations in two languages – Russian and English. It is too much for an interpreter to transform all the information and slides, so some people were not able to understand the language».
