OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY
           

Safety and Health
           

U. S. Steel Košice, s.r.o. remains focused on its primary
core value – the safety and health of our employees
and contractors working at the facility every day. We firmly believe that zero injuries is achievable and that remains our goal.

The incorporation of the Carnegie Way into the safety process will enhance our efforts in identifying, prioritizing, and eliminating risk while engaging the entire workforce.

Ongoing implementation of 5S (Japanese for: sort, set in order, shine, standardize, sustain) housekeeping principles will assist in creating and maintaining an organized, clean, and high performance workplace across all facilities.

 

 

 

 

Occupational Safety and Health Protection
           

Many of the individual departments achieved excellent safety results in 2016. Departments surpassing 1.5 million employee- hours (over 2 years) without an occupational injury included Transportation, Coke Plant, Hot Rolling Mill, Cold Rolling Mill, and the subsidiary companies. This was the third time the subsidiaries reached this important milestone. On December 31, 2016, the Transportation Division reached more than 2 million employee-hours without an occupational injury. The Radiator & Pipe Mill and Blast Furnaces departments surpassed 1 million employee-hours without a recordable occupational injury.

As shown in the graph below, comparing the years 2001 through 2016, U. S. Steel Košice, s.r.o. achieved a 94% reduction in OSHA Recordable Injury rate and a 98% reduction in Days Away from Work Injury rate.

 

 

RISK ELIMINATION


Carnegie Way efforts continued throughout 2016 as we refined the 5S Audit and Hazard Identification, Elimination and Risk Assessment (HIRA) processes. 5S locations were established in all areas of the facility. Each area received an initial and follow up audit during the year. Audit scores improved by approximately 20% over 2016. Our Fatality Prevention Audit Process evaluated Confined Space Entry, Molten Metal, and Fall Hazards/Work at Heights. Cross functional teams comprising Operations, Maintenance, Engineering, Labor Union, and Safety personnel performed 71 audits throughout the operations identifying 78 opportunities for improvement. Through the HIRA process, the workforce resolved 5,494 identified issues or hazards.

 

 

 

 

 

On June 3, 2017 already
the sixth edition of the annual Family Safety Day
event was held with a sub-title
“Where does my Dad, my Mom work?”



 

Empty

The event was organized by the Public Affairs Department and the Safety, Industrial Hygiene & REACH Department in close cooperation with administration and operations units.
Once again, the biggest attraction of this year's Company open day for employees and their families was surely their chance to see the steelworks operations with their own eyes. For the adults and youngsters aged 12 years and over a walk-through guided tour of the Cold Rolling Mill, Dynamo and Color-coating Lines and Shipping section was arranged.
Bus tours around the whole steelworks were also prepared, taking in most of the divisional plants and looking right inside the hall of the Hot Rolling Mill. Naturally there was also a hugely varied accompanying program of demonstrations and activities with stands all over the main parking lot and grass area outside the main entrance to U. S. Steel Košice. This year's event was attended by 5 100 visitors.
