Steel Safety Day: 28 April
Established in 2014, Steel Safety Day was set up to reinforce awareness of the five most common causes of safety incidents and to create a safer working environment across the entire steel industry worldwide.
By focusing every year on the top five causes of serious safety incidents - moving machinery, working at heights, falling objects, on-site traffic and process safety incidents - worldsteel and worldstainless intend to set up a continuous improvement process and reiterate its commitment to the safety and health of the people who work in the industry.
Each year, one of the five causes is highlighted to raise awareness of the cause and how to prevent associated risks.
This activity is organised in cooperation with the World Steel Association. This year, worldsteel is collaborating with 3M to deliver a series of webinars identifying the risks involved at working at heights and how to manage them. Find out more here
