|Introduction workplace||Base metal ingot cast cutting / Scrap iron cutting|
Base metal ingot cast cutting with thermic lances. We work indoors and room temperature gets considerably high, especially in the summer. Sparks fly so we need to wear cotton or flame-retardant / non-melting clothing at the workplace.
Steel scrap cutting with acetylene fusion cutters. This work is done outside and workers get extremely hot because of direct exposure to sunlight on top of the cutting work in addition to the heat source of cutting work process itself. We have been actively working on taking measures against the heat, but we couldn't use fans because of the danger involved with flying dust and sparks.
