Surprise! On August 1st, an exercise was organized at the Belval steel plant to check the responsiveness and knowledge of our supplier HARSCO during an emergency situation in a confined space.
Indeed, the firm Harsco was carrying out a cleaning operation of the lid of the ladle furnace (furnace allowing to grade the steel according to the required product characteristics), when one of our employees intervened to achieve an audit. The auditor then simulated a malaise to challenge our supplier. This type of test is performed several times a year on different suppliers or on our own staff in different sectors.
Managing the knowledge and know-how of our subcontractors is key to controlling the environmental, social and economic risks related to our activity on our plants, but also to make the activities upstream and downstream the production reliable.
