AK Steel Honored for Perfect Safety Record

AK Steel said today that the Safety Award of Honor from the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA) has been presented to the Columbus, Indiana plant of AK Tube LLC.

Employees of the plant earned the award for their perfect safety record of having no recordable illnesses or injuries in 2007. FMA noted that the award "recognizes the company's commitment to providing a safe work environment for its most valuable assets, the employees."

"Congratulations to our AK Tube Columbus, Indiana employees for their 2007 safety performance," said James L. Wainscott, chairman, president and CEO of AK Steel. "Working an entire year without experiencing a single recordable injury is truly an exceptional safety achievement."

The Columbus plant is a previous recipient of FMA's Safety Award of Merit award for its 2006 safety performance. Also, the Columbus plant participates as a Star site in the Indiana Department of Labor's Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). The VPP Star signifies that the plant's employee programs go above and beyond Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements, and reflects a cooperative relationship between management, employees and OSHA.

Overall, AK Steel led the steel industry in safety during 2007 with a corporate-wide total injury rate 12 times better than the industry average, according to data compiled by the American Iron and Steel Institute.
