The Scaw Metals Group (Scaw) is continuing on its journey toward a zero injury culture, with all employees being made aware that they each play a role in making a difference resulting from a shared understanding and dedication to working safely. As a manufacturer of value-added steel products from steel scrap and directly reduced iron, Scaw is active in one of the world’s most sustainable industries. It procures and processes its own steel scrap requirements and recycles significant volumes of steel in its steelmaking operations.
“At Scaw we continuously drive our safety, health and environment management programmes. As an organisation it is imperative for sustainable business performance and improvement”, asserts Jurgen Theiss, Head of Safety, Health and Environment for Scaw Group.
The group is mindful of the impact of global warming and the pressing need to conserve finite resources. It strives to improve the efficiencies and hence maximises the use of the resources it uses to manufacture its range of steel products. With a strong and culturally diverse team of talented, enthusiastic individuals, nothing is more important to Scaw, its operations, and the safety management teams than the sustainability of Scaw’s businesses and the safety and wellbeing of its workers.
Staff and contractor training workshops and presentations have also contributed to greater awareness and survey participation –allowing for an exchange of views and discussions on the solutions to potential safety challenges, problems or concerns.
