Engaging with our suppliers: Buying safe products


We recently discovered that some of the protective garments used by the employees and contractors in our steel plants were failing to pass safety tests after laundering. We are not prepared to accept the additional safety risk to our people, so we are arranging substitute garments. At the same time, we are investigating the cause of the problem and working with our suppliers to implement the latest changes to ISO18001 safety standards to ensure all new garments supplied are compliant and safe.
