Forum participant’s opinion

«Forums like this actually help to improve industrial safety. One of the advantages of this forum is that people can share experience, i.e. about the accident that happened in Bhopal, or accidents happening in Moldova, Ukraine, etc. People learn lessons got after such accidents, and create new rules, regulations and best practices in order to prevent them. Its very important to learn the best practices of other countries and organizations, and implement them in your own country, in your own organization, it is very important. I think, today people pay enough attention to the problems of industrial safety. In fact people are now becoming aware of the disasters and safety operations. Like air and water we breathe and use, safety has become very important.»
