Kazakhstan intends to modernize the system for protecting workers’ rights by creating a digital map of companies. This project was initiated by the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Population of the Republic of Kazakhstan and will be implemented by July of this year, the department’s press service reports. 

According to the head of the Ministry of Labor Svetlana Zhakupova, despite the existing support measures, there are still negligent employers in the country who hide the facts of injuries to their employees. In addition, the rights of workers in hazardous industries are systematically violated.

It is expected that the digital platform will make state monitoring of enterprises more effective. In addition, they plan to improve the occupational risk assessment system itself.

Ms. Zhakupova noted that all information about companies will be automatically sent to the Ministry of Industry databases. It will be possible to promptly investigate violations, since currently some incidents are assessed after the fact, which, as a rule, does not work in favor of the injured employee.  

Modernization of the control system involves the introduction of digital equipment that will show the presence or absence of harmful factors at a particular enterprise. This information should be fed into the department’s information systems in real time. 

It is also planned to introduce online courses for additional training and testing the knowledge of workers who are responsible for labor safety at enterprises and state inspectors.
