Visiting our Facility

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only visitors critical to our operational needs are permitted to come on-site at this time. Algoma Steel is committed to the health and well-being of everyone at our workplace.   To this end, we have implemented a robust program to protect the health of everyone onsite and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Safety is our first priority.  Our steelworks is a dynamic, stimulating environment. The following guidelines will keep you safe and comfortable during your visit. A company representative will accompany you while inside the steelworks. For your safety, stay with your guide at all times.

Appropriate attire includes long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, and socks. Dust jackets can be provided.

Most tours stay to designated walkways. For this sturdy, flat soled, enclosed footwear is acceptable. Sandals, open-toed shoes or high heels are not acceptable footwear. For more extensive tours, steel-toed boots are required. Your host will advise you if this applies.

Personal safety equipment (hard hat, safety glasses and hearing protection) will be provided at the start of the tour and must be worn in the mill at all times.

Most mill tours involve extensive walking, stairs and occasional heights, all within an industrial environment.

Some areas can be quite warm and anyone with a pacemaker must not enter the areas around the ladle metallurgy furnaces (LMF).

If any of these elements are a concern please notify your host in advance of your visit. You may need to skip some areas of the operation or an alternative route will be identified.

Always stay alert. Use of mobile devices is not permitted in operating areas or while traversing walkways.

When walking in the facility, watch your footing and use handrails when on stairs and elevated walkways.

Stay within the designated walkways and away from restricted areas.

Do not touch any equipment or products. There are many moving parts, sharp edges, and hot materials. Before the tour, your guide will go over a more detailed list of guidelines. Inform your guide prior to the tour if you have any safety questions or concerns.
