Ministry for Emergency Situations has confirmed participation in XIV International Forum on Industrial Safety and will report about industrial safety conditions in Belarus.

Top industrial safety experts, senior engineers and technical directors from all industries and state supervision agencies annually take part in the Forum to share experience in man-made accidents and natural disasters prevention and response.

International Forum on Industrial Safety ensures the possibility for an open dialogue that promotes interaction between government and industries and interstate communication. Industrial and environmental safety solutions jointly developed by the Forum participants allow reducing the negative impact on the environment.

Forum Organizer:

More than 20% of the company’s employees have scientific degrees and state awards for professional achievements. Senior executives of GCE Group are members of workgroups under the UNECE and the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs and participants of state expert commissions.

Forum participant’s opinion

«All over the Forum I discussed with other specialists future activities arising from the problems mentioned here. At the moment the Forum is very much fixed on problems with industrial safety in Russia and neighboring countries like Kazakhstan, Belorussia and so on. But we need to open it more for international standards.

Nearly every presentation was to some extent interesting for me, for example the methodologies for risk assessment, because this is also the topic in European Union constraints. But also the topics which are far away from problem fields in Germany, problems with pipelines, for instance. These topics are really new for me, and normally, I didn’t have knowledge about this.

The organizational level of event was very high and I don’t want to complaint anything. I have one proposal concerning information transfer – presentation interpretation by two interpreters is not enough. I would like also to have presentations in two languages – Russian and English. It is too much for an interpreter to transform all the information and slides, so some people were not able to understand the language».
