Preventive action for Safety is a never-ending job, which encompasses continuous inspection and in depth collaboration by the floor workers. Under my opinion to seek Safety in the plant needs a complete change of mentality by the managers, middlemen and workers; to the purpose meetings are essential as well as deep review of procedure instructions. Making everybody alerted of current accidents index of frequency and index of gravity is a good starting point; year-by-year improvements of these indexes helps in motivating everybody.Be aware that nothing can assure total Safety, but continuous efforts may increase Safety in your plant.I am responsible of Safety overview in a few Electric Steelmaking Plants. After having worked for 7 years to the issue, I have greatly reduced the above indexes, but I still pray for God helping me on unforeseen accidents.
