The safety and well-being of aluminum industry employees is a top priority. Just like any manufacturing process, there are inherent risks and hazards involved with aluminum production and fabrication. However, we believe these hazards can be minimized or eliminated entirely by careful attention to safe handling practices and the sharing of best practices.
Recycling aluminum – the acquiring, preparing and melting of aluminum scrap for use in making new aluminum products – plays a vital part in the economic and sustainability attributes of aluminum. Our top priority is to keep workers safe throughout the recycling process. To help achieve this, the association publishes a variety of safety guidance, hosts industry safety workshops and more.
We encourage you to submit molten metal incidents to the program so we can continue to share this vital information among facilities and improve molten metal safety throughout the industry.
