28 April is Steel Safety Day. Coinciding with the International Labor Organization’s World Day for Safety and Health at Work, Steel Safety Day was set up in 2014 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.
Every year worldsteel assigns a focus theme based on but not limited to the top five causes of serious safety incidents: (1) machinery safety, (2) working at heights, (3) falling objects, (4) on-site Traffic and (5) process safety incidents.
During Steel Safety Day or the weeks leading up to 28 April, our members launch a global campaign centred on the theme established by worldsteel. By focusing each year on one or more of the key issues in our industry, worldsteel aims to establish a process of continuous improvement and reiterate its commitment to the safety and health of people working in the industry.
