State labour safety inspection “Sanoatgekontechnazorat” has submitted a number of amendments to the legislation regulating operation of major hazard installations. If adopted, the draft law would require operators of major hazard installations (MHIs) with the number of workers 50 or more, to create special service that would perform self-monitoring of compliance with industrial safety requirements. The service must consist of qualified personnel.
The employer would be responsible for organising self-monitoring of compliance with industrial safety requirements.
In addition, the draft proposes to increase financial administrative penalties for breaching work safety instructions by up to 2 times.
