Metalloinvest has co-organised an international conference for industrial safety, led by the Industrial and Occupational Health and Safety Committee, a mining industry sub-group of the World Steel Association (WSA).

NLMK Group hosted and co-organised the two-week event at Stary Oskol. Specialists from Metalloinvest, NLMK Group, ArcelorMittal, Tata Steel, EVRAZ, and the Brazilian company Mineracao Usiminas held presentations at the conference.

Topics of discussion included a range of solutions to ensure industrial safety in the extraction and beneficiation of mined rock. Particular focus was given to the construction and use of the tailings dump, blasting and drilling operations, and the organisation of vehicle and pedestrian transport systems for movement around the production areas.

The second day of the event involved a site visit to see production processes. At Lebedinsky GOK, Metalloinvests guests observed blasting operations in the mine and looked around the HBI-3 Plant, one of the largest plants in the world producing hot-briquetted iron.

Conference participants also visited NLMK Groups Stoilensky GOK, including the mine, crushing and conveyor complex, thickening unit, and pellet plant and tailings dump facility.

This is the first meeting of the WSAs Industrial and Occupational Health and Safety Committee in Russia. Past meetings took place in Brazil in 2018 and Finland in 2017.

Andrew Purvis, Head of the WSAs Industrial and Occupational Health and Safety Committee, commented: Events like this are so important for the metals and mining sector. It allows companies from across the globe to discuss current issues and challenges, exchange experience and share examples of best practice in production.

Vladimir Trifonov, adviser to the CEO of Management Company Metalloinvest, said: Metalloinvests goal is to completely eliminate accidents during production. We are implementing a range of technological, organisational and management solutions to develop a corporate culture of safety. In this work we aim to use advanced global practices and are prepared to share our experience and technologies with other companies. The conference in Stary Oskol provided a platform for practical dialogue which was valued highly by all participants.
