NLMK Group improves Occupational Health and Safety across Russian sites

NLMK Group has launched new OHS programs at all of its Russian sites. The initiative was announced by Oleg Bagrin, NLMK Group CEO, at NLMK Group’s First OHS Conference held on 10-11 December in Lipetsk.

The new programs are based on a preventative approach to management of OHS risks through application of a uniform methodology for identifying potential hazards; risk assessment; and introducing the most advanced risk management measures across all NLMK companies. The plan provides for the active involvement of all personnel in identifying production hazards and developing response measures.

The two-day conference was attended by members of the NLMK Management Board, heads of divisions and employees responsible for occupational health and safety. NLMK Group’s OHS development strategy was discussed and a workshop was held to drive development of safety culture and implementation of new tools designed to manage production risks whilst ensuring personnel involvement. The conference ended with a practical exercise In Search of Safety at the Lipetsk site.

Oleg Bagrin, NLMK Group CEO, said at the conference:

“NLMK Group’s strategic objective is to become a global leader in the industry. Leadership involves the highest level of performance in all disciplines: from economic efficiency; quality of output and use of technology; to environmental footprint and occupational health and safety. Steelmaking is a complex and hazardous technological process and achieving top performance is impossible without a world-class occupational health and safety management system and best practices for identifying and preventing risks. A systematic, proactive approach ensures exceptional results. Currently, a unified program is being launched at all NLMK’s sites in Russia. Next up are NLMK’s international companies, many of which are already showing positive trends in occupational health and safety.”
