Forum participant’s opinion

«Such forums will provide important contributions in terms of their specific subjects; as well as industrial safety. Through such kind of Forums, the recent studies and experiences can be shared; thus, the accidents can be avoided without any loss. The causes and consequences of the major accidents have vital importance in terms of industrial safety. The studies that are related to such kind of accidents (such as Soma) should be taken seriously. In addition, giving attention to new developments in industrial safety might increase the attention to the Forum. I am thankful to the organization committee. From the welcome until the farewell, everything was great».
