NZFBI members are invited to join the IFE Auckland Group for a unique opportunity to visit the Glenbrook Steel Mill on 7 April.
Situated at Glenbrook south of Auckland, New Zealand Steel’s fully integrated steel mill produces a range of flat steel products for both domestic and export markets.
New Zealand Steel uses locally sourced iron sand and coal to produce about 650,000 tonnes of steel a year.
Participants will get:
- An up-close look at steel production from black sand
- Gain an understanding of hazards around steel production areas and slag reduction, and
- Learn firefighting techniques with breakouts.
Locomotive safety for both diesel mechanical and diesel electric locomotives will also be covered.
This opportunity is limited to only 15 participants. The cost will be $10.00 per person payable on the day. A small function and debrief to be held at the Waiuku Fire Station during the BBQ.
