ArcelorMittal (‘the Company’) today announces that it has engaged dss+, a leading provider of sustainable operations management consulting services, to conduct a company-wide audit of its safety practices.

Alongside the publication of its third quarter financial results on 9 November 2023, the Company said it would commission a comprehensive independent third-party safety audit of its operations to identify gaps and strengthen its safety actions, processes and culture to help prevent serious accidents.

Few firms have the capabilities to carry out work of this complexity and scale, and the appointment was made following a competitive tender process, on the basis of dss+’s deep domain expertise and its ability to operate across the full breadth of ArcelorMittal’s international footprint, which comprises over 350 sites.

Work will start immediately and will comprise, inter alia:

  • Comprehensive Fatality Prevention Standards audits for the three main occupational risks leading to Serious Injuries and Fatalities.
  • Expert input into the Company’s planned CTO-led process risk management safety audits of its highest priority countries and assets.
  • In depth assessments of all health and safety systems, processes, structures and capabilities; governance and assurance processes; and systems and data management.

The audit is expected to take up to nine months with the main recommendations to be published in September 2024.

Commenting, Aditya Mittal, CEO, ArcelorMittal, said:

“We look forward to working closely with dss+ over the coming months and to learn from the recommendations of the audit. This audit is of the highest importance, and we are committed to ensuring that its findings contribute to making ArcelorMittal a better, safer company. While it is underway, we continue to build on and accelerate our existing safety improvement activities.”
