The steel industry has made substantial efforts to decrease the number and frequency of workplace incidents and continue to work through AISI to share information and best practices to meet their shared goal of improving occupational safety and health.
The American Iron and Steel Institute is a member of the Coalition for Workplace Safety (CWS), which is a group of associations and employers who believe in improving workplace safety through cooperation, assistance, transparency, clarity and accountability.
Industry Position: AISI urges continued focus on cooperative government-industry approaches to promoting worker health and safety. Overly burdensome regulations may misplace priorities and create costs to employers that prevent workplace safety and health benefits from being realized. Similarly, OSHA reform legislation should not promote litigation and confrontation over more effective policies to improve worker health and safety.More »
