By the end of the year, ALROSA will develop a program to improve the industrial safety system

The Supervisory Board of ALROSA recommended that the company's management develop and approve a comprehensive program to improve the industrial safety management system by the end of the year, the diamond miner's press service reported. The program will take into account the recommendations received following the results of the external audit.

The company reportedly summed up the results of an independent audit of the industrial safety system, which ran from June 15 to October 1 2017, by decision of the supervisory board. The audit was conducted in accordance with the methodology “Critical Controls Management” (Critical Controls Management), which was originally developed by the “International Council of Mining and Metallurgical Companies” (ICMM). Following the audit, the company received a number of recommendations for improving the industrial safety system. Together with the results of their own audit, as well as the results of a comprehensive audit of Rostechnadzor, they will form the basis of the program.

“The accident that occurred in August at the Mir mine, as well as the results of inspections and audits, showed that the company needs to improve the industrial safety system. We will seriously increase funding for activities related to improving industrial safety, and will strengthen the staff of the team that will be responsible for this area. In the near future, under my direct supervision, inspections of compliance with industrial safety at all the company's facilities will be organized on an ongoing basis, ”says the commentary by the company's president, Sergey Ivanov. He also reports on the plans to form a special committee directly subordinate to the head, “which will include both production managers, workers, representatives of the trade union and independent experts”. “When evaluating any actions and decisions, we will stick to a risk-based approach. This means that all projects implemented in the company will be evaluated, first of all, not in terms of economic results, but in terms of their industrial safety. In these matters we must have zero tolerance for any shortcomings, ”the press service quotes him.

One of the key initiatives will be the restructuring of the industrial safety management system, including its separation from production services to ensure independence in assessing, controlling and making decisions. It is planned to revise the organization of the activity itself - in particular, to eliminate the excess "paper" burden on workers in the sphere of labor protection and industrial safety and to strengthen the function of direct control over the safe conduct of work. In addition, the company plans to improve the efficiency of the system of collecting and analyzing statistics and introduce a system of risk assessment of production processes, to conduct large-scale training of employees on new standards and regulations, the report said.
