Throughout the year worldsteel organises specifically designed technical workshops which are typically open both to worldsteel member and non-member companies. The purpose of the workshops is to share experiences and learn from each other.
The workshops focusing of safety and health in the steel industry have been held at the rate of two per year starting in November 2011. The aim of the workshop is to increase overall competency in safety and health. During the meetings, member and non-member industry experts, share and benchmark case studies.
The aim of the workshops organised by worldsteel is to share the methodologies and processes used by worldsteel members in order to benchmark and analyse the steel industry’s performance on diverse topics such as safety, energy, air quality, water management, maintenance and reliability.
Six online assessment or benchmarking systems are currently available via worldsteel:
The online assessment or benchmarking systems are secure systems enabling each site/company to compare their results against comparable sites or plants, or a representative reference site. They also enable the user to compare their results against better performing companies/sites and identify the areas for improvement. Some of these systems also forecast the impact of additional technologies and what they may bring to a plant or site.
Access needs to be authorised by worldsteel by requesting usernames and passwords. worldsteel members need to assign a person who can act as the principle person for an organisation who can then oversee the analysis. Requests for access can be made to worldsteel through contacting Henk Reimink (firstname.lastname@example.org), worldsteel Director, Industry Excellence.
The objective of these workshops and benchmarking systems is to improve the performance of the global steel industry through best practice and technology sharing. The overall outcome sought is to make the industry a safer, healthier and more environmentally responsible place to work.
