EHS Managers are Increasingly Appreciated by Their Organizations, Enviro.BLR.com Survey Finds

Environmental health and safety managers are perceived as doing a valuable job by their employers. The bad news is that only half of those taking part in BLR's survey report that they regularly communicate the business value of their environmental or safety activities.

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) March 31, 2022 -- Environmental health and safety managers are perceived as doing a valuable job, with 75% of the 470 respondents in a Business and Legal Reports, Inc. online survey agreeing with the statement that their organizations see the value in their EHS activities. The trend is positive too, with 77% reporting that expectations for EHS have increased over the past 5 years. Full results of the survey conducted by Enviro.BLR.com – Making State Environmental Compliance Easier – may be downloaded at http://www.blr.com/80502500/PRS7

If increased EHS stature is the good news, however, the bad news is that only half of those taking part in the survey report that they regularly communicate the business value of their environmental or safety activities, or that they have a formal process for measuring EHS performance.

“The profession is growing in stature, and recognizes that it needs to manage toward business drivers,” said Clare Condon, managing editor of BLR’s environmental products. “The response to BLR’s survey shows that EHS professionals need to complete the cycle by finding out how to communicate the value of their environmental and safety activities to upper-level management,” Condon commented.

When asked to relay their biggest on-the-job headaches, 24% of the EHS managers surveyed listed paperwork and red tape, 14% referred to problems getting upper management buy-in, and 27% reported problems with employee training and compliance. Encouragingly enough, more managers say that their budgets are increasing (38%) than decreasing (20%).

To address these growing needs in an era of increased responsibilities, BLR’s Enviro.BLR.com provides regulatory activity tracking, plain-English analysis of EHS regulations, detailed training meetings, checklists and forms, and access to its team of expert attorneys and practitioners for 1-day compliance answers.

Whilst our own journey is by no means over, with Bailey’s assistance our eyes are certainly more open now to the technical world around us, and our journey has at least begun.”

The upgraded Steelonthenet.com information portal went online on 24th March 2005.

Government Reports Positive Trends in La Oroya Blood Leads

Doe Run Peru credits collaboration, says more needs to be done.

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 22, 2022 -- Peruvian health officials have announced indications of improvements in the blood lead levels of young children in La Oroya as a result of a collaborative agreement between the government and Doe Run Peru.

"There are encouraging indications that the steps that have been taken since the agreement began are starting to yield results," Jorge Albinagorta, a senior official with the Peruvian Ministry of Health, told a news conference in La Oroya Monday.

The study, conducted last November and December on nearly 800 children aged 6 and under from the La Oroya Antigua neighborhood, found that 91 percent of the children could continue in an ongoing holistic program of health education, improved nutrition, and environmental measures such as street cleaning.

"The progress to date is promising, but there is much more work ahead. Our job will be done only when these issues have been addressed for all the children of La Oroya," said Bruce Neil, president of Doe Run Peru.

In keeping with international protocols, the remaining 9 percent of children found to be at high risk for complications related to lead exposure will receive more aggressive measures, Albinagorta said. Several of the children will be sent to Lima for further medical and other developmental evaluations, while the rest will attend schools and daycares in the surrounding communities, away from the sources of lead exposure.

Albinagorta also noted that previous environmental operating agreements between the government and the companies operating the metallurgical complex did not prioritize health issues. He welcomed the shift in emphasis of a new agreement being sought by Doe Run Peru to better address health issues.

"The old PAMAs didn’t take health issues into consideration so much; they were focused more on environmental and investment issues that the companies have made an effort to address," he said.
"We expect a great deal from the contributions that the company continues to give and we hope to have the collaboration of our friends in civil society," Albinagorta added.

Under a 2003 agreement with the Ministry of Health, Doe Run Peru supports state health officials with efforts including funding and helping carry out health awareness campaigns with community groups and social workers to educate families on good hygiene and nutrition techniques to combat lead exposure. In addition, the company supports a local soup kitchen that provides a daily meal to La Oroya’s neediest children.

Since purchasing the 80-year-old metallurgical complex from the Peruvian government in 1997, Doe Run Peru has spent more than $140 million on facilities, health and environmental improvements. It has pledged to spend another $150 million during the next six years.

"Our job is about more than just providing employment and contributing to the local economy," Doe Run President Neil said. "We are serious about improving local health and the environment and we will continue to work on this every day along with local health officials and the community."

The Doe Run Company, along with its subsidiaries, is a privately held natural resource company focused on environmentally sound mineral and metals production, recycling and metals fabrication. Based in St. Louis, the company and its subsidiaries serve as North America’s largest integrated lead producer and third-largest total lead producer worldwide, employing more than 4,000 people.

Shape Technology has the Edge

Shape Technology launches The Edge Wipe System to the market this week. This new product eliminates strip marking caused by excess lubricants on the strip edge.

(PRWEB) March 19, 2022 -- On a typical cold mill, coolant carry-over problems are commonplace, generating quality control issues with wet coils and strip marking. In most cases where coolant is carried over to the exit side of the mill, standard air blow-off systems remove excess fluid from the top and bottom surfaces of the strip but not from the extreme vertical edges. Based on experience and a sound understanding of the rolling process, Shape Technology provides a flexible control scheme incorporating all the features necessary for effective control of strip edge dryness.

The Edge Wipe also reduces kerosene wastage and contamination, which has huge cost savings to the user. As the coolant is drawn off the strip it is recycled via the mill sump which significantly reduces losses. In addition, the Edge Wipe helps in the reduction of harmful vapours being released into the environment, as it prevents wet coils which would have previously caused the kerosene to be burnt off in the annealing furnace.

Another feature of the Edge Wipe System is the Self Seeking Width Setting, which automatically self adjusts for varying width settings and strip edge tracking. It gives a continuous width and centring indication.

Shape Technology is the leading Shape & Profile Measurement Specialist for long and flat rolled products. For further details please contact our PR Department on +44 (0) 1202 331402

Safety.BLR.com Helps Employers with this Challenge: How to Deliver Required OSHA Training to a Growing Population of Hispanic Workers

Safety.BLR.com has just created a Spanish Resources Center to help employers keep up with the challenge of keeping a rapidly growing multilingual workforce in compliance with OSHA’s safety and health requirements.

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Experts at OSHA recognize the problem, but busy employers are the ones trying to cope with it. Immigrants make up an estimated 14 percent of the U.S. workforce, and nearly half of them are considered to have limited proficiency in English. That translates into a big challenge for employers: how to keep a multilingual workforce in compliance with OSHA’s stringent safety and health requirements.

Fortunately for employers, Safety.BLR.com, the website for safety professionals that makes training and compliance easier, has just created a Spanish Resources Center at http://safety.blr.com/spanish.cfm. The Center includes Spanish training handouts and quizzes on 54 OSHA topics. It also features news, white papers, forms, guidance documents, regulatory activity, and agency directives and interpretations to help manage occupational safety and health for the Spanish-speaking workforce.

Steve Quilliam, editor at Safety.BLR.com, commented on the site’s new Resources Center: “OSHA requires companies to make sure their employees understand safety training and follow OSHA requirements. That obligation doesn’t change if their employees have a limited understanding of English. So with its prewritten training materials and handouts, our new Spanish Resources Center can be a helpful solution to this challenge.”

The 54 training topics in the Resources Center include Spanish handouts and quizzes on confined spaces, defensive driving, electrical safety, and eye protection.

Research and Markets: Chinese Metal Industry Examined

Research and Markets (researchandmarkets.com/reports/c13994) has announced the addition of China Metal Industry (2004) to their offering.

(PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c13994) has announced the addition of China Metal Industry (2004) to their offering.

China will further encourage foreign businesses to invest in developing the country's mineral resources and promote the exchange of domestic and foreign resources, capital, information, technologies and markets on the basis of mutual benefit.

China began to open its oil industry to the outside world in 1982 by using foreign capital and technology to prospect and exploit oil and gas resources. As a result, the range of exploitation has been extended, and the output of crude oil has risen by big margins.

China issued three major policies in 1999, 2000 and 2002, making it clear that the government will give greater financial support to foreign investors. It encourages overseas companies to make technical innovations, increase domestic urchases and invest in the central and western egions. The government will also improve the anagement and services for foreign-funded firms.

As for other mineral resources, China issued a ajor policy on encouraging foreign investment in exploring and exploiting these minerals in October 2000. It opens the prospecting and mining rights market further to foreign companies, as they are allowed to set up wholly owned subsidiaries to start to prospect these resources, besides teaming up with Chinese partners.

In the future, China will pay more attention to introducing technology, management knowledge and talents from overseas into the mineral sector, instead of focusing only on luring foreign capital, it said. The country will also encourage foreign firms to invest in the service and trading segments of mineral sector, while in the past foreign investors are welcomed only to the prospecting and mining segments.

The government will abolish administrative regulations and rules that are incompatible with WTO rules.

These newsletters will give readers an outline of the development trends in these industries and markets.

Topics covered include:
- Tax return removal to hit aluminium sector
- Export tax on metals
- Steel sector to open up further
- Zhongfu Industry to raise aluminum output
- CNMC to explore Malaysian mines
- Luxembourg, China agree to enhance economic ties
- China Minmetals sees aluminium output slowing down next year
- Gold sector witnesses big profit rise
- China copper demand to remain very strong
- Australia to raise iron ore supply to China
- BHP Gears up Iron Ore Supply to China
- Five Mills Closured in Tangshan for Breaking Environmental Protection Law
- HeBei Province Reducing Steel Output 7 million tons
- China Minetals to forge partnership with Chilean giant
- Tata Steel to Enter China and Southeast Asia Through M&A;
- Great Breakthrough on Mining Industry in Yunnan
- Baosteel eyes giant of 50mln tons production capacity by 2010
- Baosteel to issue 5 billion shares

Doe Run Peru Land Transfer Makes Way For La Oroya Bus Terminal

The City of La Oroya, Peru, recently announced that it is moving forward with plans to build a much-needed bus terminal on land granted to the city by Doe Run Peru, a subsidiary of The Doe Run Company.

ST. LOUIS (March 17, 2022) – The City of La Oroya, Peru, recently announced that it is moving forward with plans to build a much-needed bus terminal on land granted to the city by Doe Run Peru, a subsidiary of The Doe Run Company. The City will finance the construction, expected to cost approximately 2 million soles (equivalent to approximately $600,000)

The mayor of La Oroya, Clemente Quincho, publicly thanked Doe Run Peru for its involvement in the development and said, “Our people have waited many years for a bus terminal. Today is an historic day for La Oroya, which will soon be crystallized with a great project – one of the best in the region.”

According to Juan Carlos Huyhua, vice president and operations manager of Doe Run Peru, the new bus terminal – which has been in the works for more than a year – responds to requests from the people of La Oroya. Regional and long-haul buses currently stop and idle on the main street of La Oroya, creating significant congestion and safety risks, as well as fumes that contribute to air pollution.

“The terminal will also provide a significant new source of employment, as La Oroya is a natural stopping point for long-distance buses,” Huyhua added. “Services are needed for the many passengers who will transit through the terminal. We hope this effort will greatly benefit the city, by helping to improve transport services for the people of La Oroya.”

Last June, Doe Run Peru transferred 7,300 square meters of land to the municipality, to be used for transport services and a regional bus terminal. In addition to the land transfer, the company also assisted by removing old structures from the building site and leveling the terrain with heavy machinery.

The Doe Run Company, along with its subsidiaries, is a privately held natural resource company focused on environmentally sound mineral production, recycling and metals fabrication. Based in St. Louis, the company and its subsidiaries serve as North America’s largest integrated lead producer and third-largest total lead producer worldwide, employing more than 4,000 people. The company and its employees are committed to keeping its operations and communities clean and safe while producing essential raw materials – lead, zinc, copper, gold and silver – that are needed for everyday life. Doe Run and its subsidiaries have U.S. operations in Missouri, Washington and Arizona, and South American operations in Peru. For more information, please visit http://www.doerun.com

“Pulse On America” to Feature American Iron & Steel Institute

Despite intense material competition, steel content in an automobile remains at 55 percent. The development and use of high-strength and advanced high-strength steels are keeping steel competitive with its aluminum, plastic, composite and cast iron counterparts.

Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 4, 2022 -- Platinum Television Group is pleased to announce the selection of American Iron & Steel Institute for its innovative, educational television series, Pulse On America. The company will be featured in a segment on “The Future of Automotive Design” in the Technology Today for Tomorrow Series.

The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) serves as the voice of the North American steel industry in the public policy arena and advances the case for steel in the marketplace as the preferred material of choice. The Automotive Applications Committee (AAC) is a subcommittee of the Market Development Committee of American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) that focuses on advancing the use of steel in the highly competitive automotive market. With offices and staff located in Detroit, cooperation between the automobile and steel industries has been significant to its success. This industry cooperation resulted in the formation of the Auto/Steel Partnership, a consortium of Daimler Chrysler AG, Ford Motor Co., General Motors Corp. and the member companies of the AAC.

Despite intense material competition, steel content in an automobile remains at 55 percent. The development and use of high-strength and advanced high-strength steels are keeping steel competitive with its aluminum, plastic, composite and cast iron counterparts. Because these next-generation steels are lighter but just as strong and affordable as their predecessors, they are being introduced into current market designs for body structures, closures, suspensions, crankshafts, steering knuckles, and other key components.

“The steel industry has been connected with the evolution of the automobile since the early 1900s,” said Ron Krupitzer, senior director, Automotive Applications, AISI. “Today our industry is reinventing itself much as the automotive industry is – by consolidating and continuing to focus on new technology. We want everyone connected with the development of new vehicles to see that new steel product and process technologies are key to developing safe, affordable, fuel efficient and environmentally responsible vehicles of the future.”

Introducing innovative steel technologies into vehicles was carried out through many different programs with technical initiatives and communications strategies, such as the ULSAB -AVC (ULSAB- Advanced Vehicle Concepts) program which was a proactive, steel-intensive initiative to respond to the automotive customers’ need for fuel-efficient vehicle design. The priority of the IMPACT program (Improved Materials and Powertrain Architectures for 21st Century Trucks) which is the U.S. Department of Defense investment-in-partnership with AISI and Ford Motor Company- on light- and medium-duty trucks, is to reduce weight, enhance performance, improve mobility and increase fuel economy of tactical trucks.

A recent report cited the top ten engines of 2004, from such major companies as BMW, Toyota, Honda, and General Motors, and all feature the prominent use of steel components. Steel offers strength, durability, mass efficiency and cost-effectiveness in their high-performance engines. For more information see www.steel.org

Yukon Gold Corporation, Inc. Acquires Massive Sulphide Resource, in the Mayo Mining District

Yukon Gold Corporation, Inc. (“Yukon Gold”), (OTCBB: YGDC) announced today that it has acquired the Marg Deposit, a volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) property consisting of 402 contiguous mineral claims covering approximately 20,000 acres, located in the central Yukon Territory.

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) March 3, 2022 -- Yukon Gold Corporation, Inc. (“Yukon Gold”), (OTCBB: YGDC) announced today that it has acquired the Marg Deposit, a volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) property consisting of 402 contiguous mineral claims covering approximately 20,000 acres, located in the central Yukon Territory.

Marg Deposit Mineral Resource Estimate:
Based on a 1997 ore resource study by Franzen Mineral Engineering Ltd. (“Franzen”), the Marg Deposit has a drill indicated resource of 5,527,002 metric tonnes (6,100,000 tons) grading 1.76% copper, 4.60% zinc, 2.46% lead, 62.7 g. of silver per ton and 0.98 g. of gold per ton over an average true width of 6.1 metres (20 ft.). Open along strike in both directions and down dip, the Company believes this classic base metal deposit has the major potential for substantially increasing tonnage. At the end of the 1996 drilling program, the thickest and richest intersection, 16.2 metre (53 ft.) true width averaged 2.82% copper, 2.46% lead, 5.50% zinc, 82.5 g of silver and 1.84 g. of gold per ton. This indicates potential increased massive sulphide thicknesses to the west. Based on current metal prices, the in-ground value of the Marg resource without any further exploration is extremely economical.(*) A preliminary evaluation by Yukon Gold’s engineers and geologists have determined this outcropping deposit with its favorable topography, resource base and excellent exploration potential, will warrant proceeding to production.

(*)Total in-ground resources and current values based on US$ Copper $1.50 lb, Lead $0.45 lb, Zinc $0.62 lb, Silver $7.29 oz., Gold $432.00 oz. as of February 23, 2005, Exchange rate $0.80. These amounts are before metallurgical loss and costs of recovery.

Resource
Copper - 214,452,973 lbs - $321,679,496
Lead - 299,746,769 lbs - $134,886,046
Zinc - 560,502,088 lbs - $347,511,295
Silver - 11,066,715 oz - $80,676,352
Gold - 195,871 oz - $84,616,272
US - $969,369,461
CDN - $1,153,549,658
Deposit Assessment:

In 135 massive sulphide intercepts in 76 diamond drill holes totaling 20,494 metres, four gently to moderately inclined, polymetallic massive sulphide horizons (A,B,C and D) in a 100 metre thick quartz-sericite schist and graphitic phyllite structural succession were outlined. The massive sulphide horizons are up to 23 metres thick and have been traced along a strike length of 1,200 metres and up to 700 metres down dip. They remain open to extension at depth and along strike. An updated drill indicated mineral resource with a minimum 3 metre width has been assigned to each of the four horizons as follows:


Horizon Thickness Tonnes Cu Pb Zn Ag Au
(m) (%) (%)(%) (g/t) (g/t)

A 4.8 133,018 1.22 2.09 3.93 65.5 1.09
B 3.7 866,081 1.68 2.21 4.10 61.1 0.90
C 8.6 1,748,894 1.65 2.39 4.25 71.2 1.22
D 5.1 2,779,009 1.88 2.61 5.03 57.8 0.85
Total 6.0 5,527,002 1.76 2.46 4.60 62.7 0.98

Acquisition Overview and Work Program Activity
With the Marg Deposit acquisition, Yukon Gold has significantly increased its resource base and has assembled one of the largest land positions in the Yukon Territory’s Mayo Mining District. Mr. Warren Holmes, Chairman and CEO of Yukon Gold expanded this fact by stating, “The acquisition of the Marg asset constitutes a logical step in the mandate of the company to acquire advanced projects and provides an opportunity for early production. This is a significant mineral resource with excellent exploration potential to increase tonnage moving forward. Our plan to acquire mineral deposits and drill indicated resources that can be taken to production in the highly prolific Tombstone Gold Belt with a centralized milling facility for these late stage properties is well underway.”

Articulating Seal that Handles Shaft Misalignment to Keep Equipment Running Longer

Inpro/Seal Expands Sealing System Product Line for Powder and Bulk Applications
Inpro/Seal has introduced their Articulating Air Mizer™-, PS a sealing system developed to positively seal equipment where dry particulates, powders and bulk solids are handled, processed, packaged and stored. Once installed, the system helps contain powders, abrasives, liquids and toxic vapors. In addition, it handles extreme shaft misalignment and deflection, common in these kinds of applications to provide a seal that traditional methods simply cannot attain. A unique design feature uses a solid wall of air that functions as a barrier for contamination and works to retain product where it should be - in the equipment. The highest levels of performance are assured by virtue of an inherent non-contact design feature that avoids direct egress of the particulate material.

Rock Island, IL (PRWEB) March 2, 2022 -- Building on the ongoing success of their ability to positively seal equipment in dry powder and bulk process applications, Inpro/Seal has introduced their Articulating Air Mizer™-, PS sealing system.

Two Sealing Solutions
With this system Inpro/Seal now offers two sealing solutions for the containment of powders, abrasives, liquids and toxic vapors: the Air Mizer™-PS and the Articulating Air Mizer™- PS, a sealing system with upgraded design features.

Both were developed for use on equipment where dry particulates, powders and bulk solids are handled, processed, packaged and stored. Examples include: screw conveyors, gate valves, feeders, mixers, blenders, gates, clinker grinders, bucket elevators, diverters, scales, bagging machines, dust collectors, discharges, classifiers, screens, extruders, separators, shredders, sifters, metal detectors, pulverizers, crushers, coolers, augers, transfer pumps, fillers and similar dry powder and bulk processing machinery.

Result Of Continuous R & D
The result of direct customer request, input and feedback, continuous R&D; and extensive field testing and trials, the Articulated Air Mizer-PS has all the features of the original Air Mizer™-PS and adds the ability to handle extreme shaft misalignment and deflection, common in these kinds of applications to provide a seal that traditional methods simply cannot attain.

Ineffective Sealing Methods
Before the advent of the Articulated Air Mizer-PS end users had to deal with sealing methods that did not last because of shaft runout. Mechanical seals work on a contact basis and are subject to excess wear on the seal faces as they make contact. Seal faces have been known to wear out in as little as 3,000 hours.

Fibrous packings are also subject to wear and short lifetimes from runout where packing in the stuffing boxes compress and create a leak path. Packing can soften to the point where powder can leak to the outside, causing environmental problems. Tightening may renew the seal, but only for a relatively short period of time.

Successful Product At Heart Of Air Miser Seal
To counter, Inpro/Seal took their bearing isolator, a compound labyrinth bearing protection device, that they invented (and patented) in 1977 and modified it for use with dry particulates, powders and bulk solids.

A major innovation includes a unique design feature that uses a solid wall of air that functions as a barrier for contamination and works to retain product where it should be - in the equipment. The highest levels of performance are assured by virtue of an inherent non-contact design feature that avoids direct egress of the particulate material.

Latest In Non-Contact Technology
According to David C. Orlowski, President of Inpro/Seal and the holder of some 40 related patents, “Realizing the importance of what production continuity and what lost product can mean to the bottom line, several years ago, we introduced our Air Mizer Sealing System. This system has proven to help end users boost equipment reliability, reduce costs, extend sealing efficiencies and increase bottom line results, without equipment modification.”

Orlowski continued, “As time went on, more and more end users came to us with the same need. Beside the other problems they were having with contact seals, shaft deflection, run-out and misalignment was also causing seal faces to wear out and equipment to break down on a too rapid basis. Angular misalignment and mounting conditions, in particular, were hard to deal with.”

Orlowski concluded, “To solve this problem, working closely with our customers, our R & D people developed the Articulating Air Mizer™-PS, a sealing system that uses the latest in non-contacting technology with an air purge that accepts radial and angular shaft runout up to ¼”. Shaft diameters from ½ in - 36 in. No other sealing mechanism can do this.”-

No Equipment Modification, Easy to Install
The Articulating Air Mizer™-PS, sealing system is custom-engineered to suit individual applications. It is easy to install as it conforms to existing clearances, boltholes and patterns for bearings and/or stuffing boxes. Split designs allow for installation directly on the shaft without removal.

More Benefits
Additional benefits include: lower maintenance costs, reduction in lost product, unscheduled downtime virtually eliminated and meet regulatory needs. As with all other Inpro/Seal products same day shipping is available.

About Inpro/Seal
Inpro/Seal Company is the originator and the world’s number one manufacturer of bearing isolators, used to protect motor and pump bearings, machine tool spindles, turbines, fans, gear boxes, paper machine rolls and many other types of rotating equipment. Additional applications include the sealing, handling, processing, packing and storage of dry particulates, powders and bulk solids.

Over one and one half million of Inpro/Seal’s original bearing isolator designs are in operation in process plants worldwide, where end users continue to report significantly reduced operating costs with increased productivity and reliability. Documented cases show that a plant can more than double the mean-time-between failure (MTBF) and reduce maintenance costs by at least half, with users reporting an extremely high ROI.

As the recognized global leader in bearing isolator technology, Inpro products are marketed to the aerospace, automotive, petroleum, refining, nuclear, power generation, metalworking, food processing, grain processing, chemical, water, wastewater treatment, metalworking, hydrocarbon processing, HVAC, pulp and paper, mining, mineral, ore processing and general industrial markets.
