GCE Group is participating in All-Russia Labor Protection Week

18.04.2016

On April 18, 2015 All-Russia Labor Protection Week is starting in Sochi. The event is focused on the latest trends and perspectives of labor protection, safety and occupational health.

The event supported by the Government of the Russian Federation and the Ministry of Labor will be held on April 18-22 in Sochi and is targeted to discussion of the recent changes introduced into occupational safety legislation, methodologies of staff training, improvement of work culture, individual protection equipment and other issues.

GCE Group President Alexander Moskalenko comments that occupational safety issues should always be in focus, as health and lives of employees depend on the proper arrangement of the work process and the senior management who should promote occupational safety culture.

Statistics provided by the Federal Agency for Environmental, Technological, and Nuclear Supervision showed reduction of fatalities on sites in 2015 in comparison to 2014.

Main causes of work-related injuries are as follows:

  • Insufficient awareness of the staff about the requirements that affect occupational safety;
  • Ineffectiveness of staff trainings related to meeting the safety requirements.

We would like to remind that C.A.C.–GCE (a member of GCE Group) focuses on occupational safety consulting. Gazprom, Rosneft, LUKOIL, the Russian Railways, Gillette, Alcoa and many other industrial leaders are among the company’s clients.

Forum participant’s opinion

«Speaking on behalf of the UNECE I should say that this Forum is very important for us. It gives us the opportunity to present to the participants who represent authorities and the private sector the content and the importance of the Industrial Accidents Convention. This Forum gives us as I said a great opportunity to share our message with the participants and we are active in several frameworks to talk and discuss about the Industrial Accidents Convention. In general such conferences are very important, moreover, they provide different countries and stakeholders with an opportunity to discuss industrial safety problems and challenges.»
