Safety is our No. 1 priority. To provide a safe, informative tour, we ask that you read the following general rules and guidelines prior of your visit. There will be many exciting operations and procedures going on around you as you walk through our facility. These guidelines will keep you safe and comfortable during your tour.

Tour format
A tour guide will accompany you through the facility. For your safety, stay with your tour guide at all times. A comprehensive look at our facility takes approximately two hours.
Medical and physical restrictions
Inform your tour guide prior to the tour if any of these are a concern.
  • Be prepared for a fairly long walk. The tour may last two hours or more and requires walking on mainly concrete surfaces in an industrial environment.
  • High-heat areas may be present throughout the tour route. If you’re sensitive to heat, you may need to skip these areas.
  •  Tours through the melt and cast area require climbing and descending three flights of stairs and an elevated walkway. Those with physical or medical restrictions are advised to skip this area and begin their tour at the base of the caster.
  • Anyone with a pacemaker must not enter the areas around the ladle metallurgy furnaces (LMF) in the melt and cast area, or the areas of the melt deck behind the furnace shell.

What to wear
  • Appropriate attire includes long pants or jeans, a long-sleeved shirt, and socks. A short-sleeved shirt may be worn under the provided flame-retardant jacket.
  • Comfortable footwear of sturdy construction (preferably leather) is critical. Sandals, open-toed shoes, high heels, etc., are not acceptable footwear.
  • Contact lenses are strongly discouraged. Visitors who must wear contact lenses will be provided sealed safety glasses to be worn throughout the tour.
  • Loose jewelry, such as necklaces and dangling ear rings, is prohibited.
  • Safety equipment (hard hat, safety glasses with side shields, flame-retardant jackets, and hearing protection) will be provided at the start of the tour and must be worn in the mill at all times.

General safety rules and guidelines
  • Always stay alert. When driving on campus, watch for large vehicles or debris and obey all traffic signs.
  • When walking in the facility, watch your footing and use handrails when on stairs and elevated walkways.
