Managers of major companies discussed various occupational health practices, COVID-19 activities and other topics.
In particular, CPC General Director spoke about measures taken during the pandemic in order to protect life and health of personnel and their family members, as well as to ensure reliable operation both for operational facilities and for medical institutions located in the regions of company's presence.

These efforts were highly praised by Tatiana Golikova, RF Deputy Prime Minister.

In the framework of practical discussions at the Occupational Health and Safety Week, CPC representatives shared with their colleagues their achievements in Safe Work Culture. One of the key goals is to build direct dialog of management with personnel at all levels, building an atmosphere of openness and trust in safety issues. 2021 saw Caspian Pipeline Consortium successfully pass certification for compliance with international standard ISO 45001:2018. At the same time, CPC arranged an independent assessment of Safe Work Culture, which identified new possibilities for its development in order to reach a new level.
In December 2020 CPC launched a new corporate program “Leaders of Safe Work Culture Development”. Its participants (Consortium and contractor personnel) become work safety leaders in their departments and share their knowledge with others as mentors.
