ArcelorMittal Poland – a visit of students of the Koszalin University of Technology
On April 8, 2019, a visit of students from the Koszalin University of Technology took place at the ArcelorMittal Poland plant in Dąbrowa Górnicza (formerly Huta Katowice).
The decision to build a modern, brand new plant, located in a forested area of Zagłębie Dąbrowskie was taken by Edward Gierek during the VI Congress of Polish United Workers’ Party, which took place on December 6–11, 1971. The construction was initiated on April 15, 1972, and it brought far-reaching changes to the social structure of the region.
The meeting started with OHS training, during which the students of Koszalin University of Technology familiarized themselves with the rules of moving around the site. Next, the participants were divided into two groups, which parallelly visited two objects of the steel mill. In the Steelworks, the process of steel formation was shown. On the premises of Rolling Mill, students saw with their own eyes how ready-made sections are formed from billets. Next, participants were invited to lunch and a short presentation of ArcelorMittal’s offer, which is one of the Partners of the BUILD WITH STEEL Program.
We thank the Board of the Company for organizing the visit. We thank ArcelorMittal employees for their time.
