Incident Reporting Procedure
The goal of the procedure is to share the circumstances and the reasons of incidents or near miss happenings (explosion, fire) with all companies who use Magnesium in their operations or finished products. Examples of such companies are Primary Mag Producers, Mag Recyclers, Mag Die Casters, Mag Machining / Painting Shops, Mag Powder Producers including it´s major users (Steel Makers, Metallurgical Plants, Chemical Plants, Refractory and Defense) and the General Aluminum Industry.
It is the desire of the IMA that all users of magnesium learn valuable lessons from the experiences of others as well as to share information from their own experiences. Improving the safety awareness of Magnesium is a top priority for the IMA.
Explosion and or fire involving magnesium shall be reported by use of an on-line form (use “Submit An Incident Report” button below). It is up to each company to decide which incidents to report and all identifying information, including names of companies or organizations, locations, and the like, will be removed to ensure confidentiality and to encourage the unconstrained future reporting of events as they occur.
