Close Calls, Lessons Learned: Please Share Your Safety Stories
 
Steel warehouses are dangerous places. It would be the rare service center operator who doesn’t have a story to tell about the near miss, or perhaps more serious mishap, that took place on their shop floor. Every such incident offers a potential lesson on how to avoid a similar disaster in the future. We’re asking readers to share their experiences, and the lessons learned, with Metal Center News in the interest of promoting industry safety.

We are working on a series of safety-related articles to be published later this year. We’re soliciting stories of incidents, from the critical to the close call, and what steps companies have taken to prevent repeat occurrences. What type of system do you have to document such incidents? How do you address them with employees? What can be done to make the handling and processing of metals safer for all workers?

Workplace safety is not a subject most companies feel comfortable discussing. But comparing best practices could actually save lives. If you have an anecdote you'd be willing to share with Metal Center News and its readers (even anonymously), please email MCN Senior Editor Dan Markham at dmarkham@metalcenternews.com.
