Safety in the storage and handling of steel and other metal stock

Oil & Gas Corrosion collaborates with a large number of companies in the steel supply chain, from steelmakers and forging companies to steel stockholders and distributors and we understand the importance of safety when handling steel stock. The  Health ans Safety Executive has revised the guidance for safety in the storage and handling of steel and other metal stock; this guidance is relevant to all companies in the supply chain including stockholders, contractors and operators.

Many accidents, some resulting in death and serious injury, continue to occur during the storage and handling of steel and other metal stock. They cause enormous social and economic cost over and above the human tragedy involved. It is in everyone’s interest that they are reduced. Accident investigations often show that these injuries could have been avoided.

This revised guidance is aimed at directors, owners, managers and supervisors and pays particular attention to the most common hazards, including (un)loading of delivery vehicles, storage systems, workplace transport, mechanical lifting and injuries from sharp edges.
