Safe Magnesium

The flammability of magnesium alloys, and associated fire hazards with its use, are often exaggerated.

IMA Safety Committee

In January the IMA international safety committee convened for the first time since its initiation by the Executive Committee and Board of Directors.  The committee has three primary objectives:

  1. Promote the Safety awareness of Magnesium across all industries.
  2. Develop processes and procedures to gather and communicate safety information.
  3. Develop materials for clearly communicating accurate safety information.

The committee began by reviewing the most recent safety brochure created by IMA.  They suggested that it be more widely distributed to all members.  More details on this will be presented in future newsletters.

The committee also reviewed a draft of an incident reporting system proposed by the IMA European committee.  The idea is to gather industry data with the purpose to share lessons learned and promote improvements within our industry.  The draft was modeled around similar reporting systems in other metals industries and the committee hopes to finalize something in the next meeting.

The committee welcomes additional participants!
