Occupational health and safety, environmental protection

In order to promote a more responsible and rational use of natural resources, informing the public about the consequences of this use for the safety and sustainability of the Ukrainian Association of Geologists is constantly participating in conferences, public hearings and other environmental activities in Ukraine. The Union is represented in the Public Council of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine.

As a partner of the TUTKOVSKY International Natural Resources Hub, the Ukrainian Assosiation of Geologists organizes communications with local communities in areas where natural resource projects related to usage are implemented, seeking to minimize environmental impact, safety and health, and meet safety and health requirements for staff in accordance with the requirements of European standards which are:

  • Quality management system (ISO 9001:2015);
  • Health and safety management system (OHSAS 18001:2007) and
  • Ecology management system (ISO 14001:2004).

Based on these standards with the participation of the UAG in the TUTKOVSKY International Hub of Natural Resources developed a more rigid HSE management system ‘GREEN EXPEDITION’ TUTKOVSKY TM – a comprehensive set of regulations and requirements for health, safety, environmental protection, social protection and social protection activities.
