Many steel companies have similar challenges tied to safety, productivity, and environmental stewardship. They have the capacity to produce dozens of tonnes of crude steel annually, host operations in multiple countries, and employ tens of thousands of people—all of which can prove a challenge to safely producing hot and cold rolled coils, sheets, galvanised sheets, tubes, wire rods, construction rebars, and bearings.

Ensuring environmental responsibility and worker safety in all production units is a top priority for steel companies of all sizes. These facilities use blast furnace, coke oven, and Linz-Donawitz (LD) gases in the production process, the primary component of which is carbon monoxide (CO). CO is not only harmful to the environment: it can be life-threatening to workers.
