PAO Severstal, one of the world's largest vertically integrated steel and mining companies, announces the appointment of Albert Lyaskovsky as Director for Labour Protection, Industrial Safety and Environmental Protection.
Mr Lyaskovsky will be responsible for overseeing enhanced labour safety standards across all of Severstal's industrial sites, which includes an increased use of contractors as the Company implements its ambitious investment projects. The Environmental Department, which is developing and implementing Severstal's strategy to reduce its carbon footprint and meet the challenge of climate, will also fall under his guidance.
Valery Minchev, former Director for Labour Protection, Industrial Safety and Environmental Protection, will continue to lead the department of Labour Protection, Industrial Safety and Environmental Protection at Severstal's Russian steel division.
Albert Lyaskovsky began his career in 2001 in the Department of Labour Protection, Industrial Safety and Environmental Protection at Nizhnevartovsk oil refining Association TNK (later TNK-BP). From 2008 to 2020, he worked at SIBUR, where he rose from chief expert on labor protection and industrial safety to Director of Labour Protection, Industrial Safety and Environmental Protection.
Alexander Shevelev, Severstal's CEO, commented:
'The nature of our industry requires the highest levels of attention to the issues of labour protection, industrial safety and ecology. I know that Albert's significant experience and expertise will help us develop and implement new breakthrough approaches in the area of workplace safety. In meeting the serious challenges of ecology and climate, at Severstal, we are stepping up our efforts to reduce our impact on the environment, and it is crucial that we have an experienced team that will contribute to improving sustainability performance across the entire business.
I would also like to thank Valery Minchev for his valuable contribution to the modernization of our workplace health and safety system. Under his leadership, the Company has implemented a number of effective tools to improve safety in our workplaces, and I look forward to continuing to work with him as he leads the Department of Labour Protection, Industrial Safety and Environmental Protection at our Russian Steel division.'
