Safety Success – ZERO Incidents

Congratulations to the divisions who have achieved zero recordable incidents for Q2 and the first half of the year!

Olympians have risen to meet numerous challenges this year, including moving closer to achieving our 2020 safety goals.

At the end of the second quarter, Olympic Steel’s Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) for flat rolled divisions improved 31% from the TRIR peak in October 2019. Although our hours worked has decreased, our number of injuries have decreased almost 3x that rate! Chicago Tube and Iron locations also showed significant improvement with a 50% reduction in injuries when comparing 2Q2019 to 2Q2020.

Congratulations to these divisions for their achievements in safety!
