At the meeting the issues of security and labor protection, establishment of industrial councils and the work of the technical inspectors on labor protection were discussed. It was noted that one of the main objectives of the production council is to conduct audits of working conditions, as well as organization of joint actions on prevention of occupational traumatism at enterprises and in organizations.

The establishment of works councils is particularly important for enterprises in the real sector, which are high-risk zone for life and health, and labor activity of workers is exposed to the negative processes connected with industrial injuries, violations of security and labor protection, etc.

According to statistics of the International labor organization every year due to harmful and dangerous factors of production around the world about 2.3 million people die. Mortality from accidents in the world takes the third place after cardiovascular and oncological diseases.

Accidents with fatal outcome happen more often with young and inexperienced workers.

Kazakhstan is no exception to the global patterns of occurrence of accidents in production and their impact on the health of the population and the economy.

Despite the fact that in recent years there has been a decrease in occupational injuries in the whole country, the level remains high.

On average in the country every year in the production more than 1 500 people are injured, of which more than 200 people die.

For 2018 191 enterprises 221 people died (!). The greatest number of accidents with fatal outcome occurred in Karaganda (37), Turkestan (24), East Kazakhstan regions (19).

Therefore, the organization of safety at work is a serious social problem.

The principled position of the Federation of trade unions in this matter is: people should come to work and return home alive and well to his family.

Security issues and occupational safety are constantly in focus of our attention. The Federation of trade unions 2018 announced as a Year of security and occupational health and has worked and is working in this direction and this year. In this regard, here are some facts and figures.
