The Nucor President’s Safety Award

Our commitment to safety earned us the Nucor President’s Safety Award. This prestigious accolade is presented annually to Nucor affiliates with accident rates below 1/3 of the recycling industry average. We are proud to have earned this award, yet we strive to be even better every year.

With our overriding goal of zero accidents, we have comprehensive safety procedures in place at all our facilities. This includes ongoing training and proactive, rather than reactive approaches, to ensure the safety of all employees, customers, suppliers and visitors.
