LIBERTY Steel USA appoints Chief Safety Officer

Michael C. Raabe, CSP, has been appointed as Chief Safety Officer within LIBERTY Steel USA as it implements an organisation-wide safety-first program.

In a career which began with Alcoa Inc. and has included aluminium smelting, forging, casting, rolling and recycling operations Michael has designed, launched, managed and audited safety systems that reduced operational risk, prevented injuries and engaged the workforce. He has wide-ranging experience in safety across industry and consulting.

The appointment follows LIBERTY Steel USA’s creation of a new quarterly safety council in August.

Greg Jones, Chief Executive Liberty Steel USA, said: “I’m delighted to have appointed Michael Raabe as Chief Safety Officer as we instil a safety-first culture right through LIBERTY Steel. Our United States operations have already improved safety performance over the first half of the year and we are ahead of our target to cut incidents by 20% from last year. I’m determined that our safety maturity program will lead our people to a safer workplace.”
