On April 28, on World Labor Day, the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Population of the Republic of Kazakhstan, together with the Iteca Kazakhstan Exhibition Company, held a webinar on the topic "Anticipating the crisis and being ready for it - Investing now in adequate occupational safety systems."

Opening the webinar, the First Vice Minister of Labor and Social Protection of the Population of the Republic of Kazakhstan Sarbasov Akmadi Adilovich noted that thanks to the timely measures taken in Kazakhstan, it was possible to significantly reduce the risk of the spread of coronavirus infection among workers at enterprises. First of all, this is a recommendation to all employers to transfer employees to a remote mode of work and the creation of work councils for safety and labor protection at enterprises, whose responsibilities include ensuring internal control over compliance with labor safety and health requirements at enterprises.
He also said that the the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Population has submitted a bill on improving the legal regulation of remote work for consideration by the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
According to Sarbasov, more than 1,300 workers are injured annually at enterprises in Kazakhstan, of which about 200 people die. The roadmap provides for a set of measures to optimize the requirements for employers in the field of occupational safety, aimed at reducing occupational risks at workplaces, industrial injuries and workplaces with harmful working conditions, and ensuring proper state control.
An unprecedented program with the participation of key industry experts awaited the participants of the webinar. The speaker was the Deputy Head of the Federal Service for Labor and Employment of the Russian Federation, Vice-President of MAIT Ivan Ivanovich Shklovets, who spoke about the role of labor inspectorates in the fight against the pandemic.
