The Anniversary 40th Exhibition and Conference – Fire and Rescue, Occupational Safety and Health – 112 EXPO, has been opened at Belgrade Fair and will take place till Friday, October 14. The General Patron of this educational, protection, safety and business event of general interest is the Emergency Management Sector of the Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Serbia and the Patron is the Occupational Safety and Health Department of the Ministry of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs.
Pointing out the Ministry of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs has been the event Patron since 2006, Mr. Aleksandar Jablanović, State Secretary, said such a role was an honor, as it is a matter of a very important event.
– Contemporary business conditions require the awareness change within the occupational safety and protection and the Fair objectives are also the establishing of social dialogue, promotion of the prevention and professional program of the employee protection. In eight months in 2016m the inspectors performed slightly more than 36 thousand monitoring actions, 9,196 of which was related to the occupational safety. The experience tells us the injuries are usually in the construction industry, where there is a lot of ‘black’ work. Thus, there is often lack of the regulations and procedures obeying. This has to be changed, but the practice shows just the implementation of pure reasoning protection measures would save many lives, explained Mr. Jablanović.
