Today Marks Second Steel Safety Day

Today is the second annual Steel Safety Day, an initiative launched by World Steel Association (worldsteel). The initiative was established to reinforce awareness of the five most common causes of safety injury in the industry--moving machinery, falling from heights, falling objects, gas and asphyxiation, and moving cranes--and encourage the world's steel companies to participate in industry-wide safety audits on those causes. 

According to worldsteel, many steel producers and organizations have participated in its initiatives, including sharing information and guidelines on safety practices, performing safety audits, identifying areas for improvement and establishing action plans to prevent identified risks.

Worldsteel is sharing photos, video and infographics to help support the initiative.
