AK Steel is a world leader in the production of flat-rolled carbon, stainless, and electrical steel products. It a $6.5 billion company and employs over 8,000 in 12 plants across 6 states. As a major manufacturer, it is imperative that managers and employees receive uniform and timely safety training.
LeanForward developed several elearning programs to address AK Steel’s safety training needs. Some of the programs covered general safety topics but presented them in a way that they reflected AK Steel’s specific manufacturing environment and processes. Other programs were developed to address specific risks and used to replace their quarterly safety training. AK Steel also licensed LearnPoint™ to document their elearning initiatives.
With the implementation of the new elearning programs, AK Steel is now confident that their managers and employees are receiving consistent instruction on company-specific safety issues. This elearning has also reduced training related downtime, thereby boosting productivity. In addition, they have reduced the administrative effort required to document their safety training initiatives.Back to Case Studies
