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

«First of all I would like to point out high organizational level of the Forum. The event provides a unique opportunity to share experience with industrial safety experts from various countries. We discussed lots of challenging topics. The most important for Blue Stream Pipeline Company B.V., like for all hazardous industrial facilities operators, are industrial safety practices and changes occurred in the legislation, especially the changes in the Federal Law 116-FZ which impacted everyone. In addition, I would say that the main challenge in the present world is the responsibility of the owner of any hazard facility. This challenge must be paid close attention to.»
