KIOSH-2022: The Federation of Trade Unions of the Republic of Kazakhstan presented the ASPANS communication platform

Within the framework of the X Kazakhstan International Conference KIOSH-2022 on labor protection and Industrial Safety, the Federation of Trade Unions of the Republic of Kazakhstan, together with the developer company eCapital, presented a modern communication platform ASPANS. The presentation took place during the event “CASE STUDY” on the best practices in the industry on safety and labor protection in manufacturing industries.
The platform presented to the conference participants implies a product in the form of mobile and web applications designed for the development of enterprise information systems and decision-making on the automation of business processes aimed at preventing accidents, as well as preventing risks to the life and health of employees.
“One of the elements of the platform is the ability of employees using smartphones not only to record and post in a mobile or web application the detected facts of violations of safe working conditions by attaching photo and video materials, but also to track the process of their elimination. Each registered participant has access to different modules of the platform. Along with familiarization with the facts of violation of safety rules, any employee has the opportunity to learn about the schedules, terms of training, results of knowledge testing,” chief expert of the Federation of Trade Unions of the Republic of Kazakhstan Marat Imash told the Media Center.

According to him, the Federation of Trade Unions pays special attention to expanding the forms of employee–employer feedback. And along with strengthening the activities of technical inspectors, increasing the efficiency of production councils at enterprises, holding the “Labor Consultations” campaign, the Federation of Trade Unions is introducing modern digital platforms, such as the ASPANS communication platform.
As the developers noted, with the help of the application, you can control the work permits. The system automatically notifies about the timing of the briefings by employees. The advanced settings of the platform are able to control the timing of equipment certification, the implementation of scheduled preventive repairs. As the developers say, there are many possibilities for this platform, with the help of connecting certain modules, you can significantly expand the potential of its use.

According to the participants of the conference, the use of such tools will reduce paper processes, will make it possible to make management decisions based on up-to-date data. In addition, the implementation of the platform will affect the growth of a culture of safety and labor protection by involving all employees in the process. An important element in this case is the establishment of feedback between employees and the management of enterprises on the main topical issues of occupational safety and health.
