The steel industry shares the federal government’s critical goal of ensuring safety and health at industrial workplaces. AISI member companies have 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. However, overly burdensome regulations may misdirect priorities and create unnecessary costs for employers that prevent optimum workplace safety and health benefits from being realized.
