In Kazakhstan, 100 specialties will not be considered as exclusively male

Such specialties as well driller, bulldozer driver, vulcanizer, repairman, miller, asphalt concrete worker, mason were offered to exclude from "non-female".

In Kazakhstan, adjustments to the list of works where it is forbidden to apply the work of women are planned to introduce: this list can be shortened by 100 professions. The draft order was published on the website of "Open NLAs".

"Many enterprises use modernized equipment, manual labor is minimized. The management of technological equipment and mechanisms and the impact of factors of the working environment do not harm reproductive health. The use of modern personal protective equipment and means of collective protection excludes the impact of harmful and dangerous factors on the worker's body,” explained in the defense of the majority of proposed amendments.

In the draft amendments and additions to the order "On Amendments to the Order of the Minister of Health and Social Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan of December 8, 2015 No. 944" On approval of a list of works that prohibit the employment of workers under the age of 18, the maximum standards for carrying and moving weights by workers who have not reached the age of 18, and a list of works on which the use of women's labor is prohibited, the maximum norms of lifting and moving weights by hand by women." The current list of "non-female" professions includes 287. Therefore, when the new edition of the order is adopted, this list will be reduced by about a third.

The document was exposed to the public discussion up to February 19, 2018.
