GCE Group participates in international conference “Industrial safety in mining in XXI century”

25.10.2016

The applied research conference was hosted by the Mining University in St. Petersburg on October 20-21.

The main objective of the conference was to discuss up-to-date issues of industrial safety in mining industry, to generalize national and global experience in ventilation of mines, pits and underground facilities, to dwell on the ways to improve industry-specific regulations and developments in the fields of aerology, risk assessment, PPE design.

The conference was attended by the heads of oil, gas and metallurgy companies as well as the leading experts from engineering design and R&D institutes in Russia, CIS and abroad.

“We live in the time of rapid changes. Yet, the progress in science and technology has its negative side. I am convinced that there are no borders when it comes to people’s health and safety. Therefore, cooperation, experience and knowledge sharing, proper training and prompt response to potential hazards are crucial today”, - says Alexander Moskalenko, President of GCE Group.

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.»
