Severstal Worldwide

Health & Safety

A company-wide Health and Safety Policy is in effect across OAO Severstal.

The Health and Safety Policy, signed by A.A. Mordashov, the Chief Executive Officer of OAO Severstal, states that health and safety is a key priority throughout the Company’s production processes: from the mining of coal and ore, to coke production, to pig iron and steel smelting, to the final output of industry leading metal products.

At Severstal we believe that leadership in the field of Health and Safety is key to the Company’s sustainable development and long-term success.

The Health and Safety Policy applies to and is implemented across all of the companies, enterprises and business units that together comprise OAO Severstal.

Severstal’s strategic objective is to eliminate all fatal accidents by 2015 by continuing to employ international best in class health and safety practices across all operations and become the leading Russian company in this field. To help achieve this, the Labor Safety project has been developed as a key pillar of the Severstal Business System, a company-wide set of projects and initiatives aimed at operational and financial improvement. The project, which has been implemented since 2010, will help deliver improved performance across each of the Company’s business units by actively engaging all employees and reinforcing a culture of safety based on personal responsibility and recognition. The project is structured in three parts: providing safer working conditions; training; and engaging employees. One key element of the project sees a shift in focus away from “supervision” (e.g. inspections and sanctions for violation) to constructive dialogues with employees. The Company also employs internal safety trainers who train and develop line managers directly at production sites.

An essential element of the Labor Safety project is a comprehensive audit and ongoing analysis of the Severstal Health and Safety Management System. Severstal developed standardized health and safety rating audits which facilitate assessment, monitoring and comparison across each of the Company’s units, further helping the Company to improve performance.
