Quality Policy
Shyam Steel Industries Ltd is committed to:
= Delivering the required products at the right place at the right time at the right cost from our Integrated Steel
Plant(original producer) form the very backbone of our Principles of Manufacturing.
= We view improvement as a continuous process. We are constantly aspiring to achieve betterment
of our core processes, be it manufacturing, quality control, sales or delivery. There is a joint effort
to achieve Manufacturing Excellence.

Corporate Social Responsibility Policy

As a Corporate Organisation we believe that it is our primary purpose to give back to society. Giving and sharing
what we have received is embedded deeply in us. We have actively pursued to raise the quality of life of the
people around us. We hold hands in our joint effort to create better tomorrows.

Occupational Health & Safety Policy

At our world class Integrated Steel Plant we treat our worker's well being as a mandate and not as an option.
Ensuring the highest standards of safety is imperative. We follow the occupational health and safety policy certified
under ISO 18001 : 2007.

We aim to:

= Create an environment which is safe and secure for everyone in its vicinity, be it a worker, contactor, visitor
and even the local community. All identifiable OHSAS risks and hazards are treated with the gravest concern.

= To constantly endeavour towards the highest level of health and safety such that injuries, waste and emissions
are reduced to the bare minimum.

= Train all employees to work safely and responsibly thus preventing injury to themselves and others.

= Ensure that optimum conditions exist for the proper execution of all the stipulated health and safety norms.

Following and implementing the OHSAS responsibilities is the prerogative of everyone, at all levels of
management and employees.

Total Quality Management
TQM is an approach to quality assurance that emphasizes a thorough
understanding by all members of a production unit, of the needs and
desires of the ultimate service recipients and a viewpoint of wishing to
provide service to internal, intermediate service recipients in the chain of

TQM, as defined for ISO 8402

Management approach of an organization centers on quality, based on
the participation of all its members aiming at long term success through
customer satisfaction and benefits to all members of the organization and
the society. TQM is the mutual co-operation of everyone in an
organization and associated business process to produce products, which
meet the needs and expectations of customers. Total Quality Management
is both a philosophy and a set of guiding principles for managing an
organization efficiently.

Quality Management
Quality Management has four levels: Inspection, Control, Assurance and
Total Quality Management (TQM). Quality inspection and quality control
rely on supervision to make sure that no mistakes are made. The basic
approach to quality is inspection, detection, and correction of errors. The
next level quality control is to inspect, correct, investigate and find the
causes of problems; and take action to prevent errors from re-occurring.
Both methods rely on supervision and inspection. The third level quality
assurance includes the setting of standards with documentation and also
the documentation of the method of checking against the specified
Quality inspection, control and quality assurance are aimed at achieving
an agreed consistent level of quality, first by testing and inspection, then
by rigid conformance to standards and procedures; and finally by efforts
to eliminate the causes of error so that the defined accepted level is
Total Quality Management is a comprehensive and integrated way
of managing any organization in order to:
a) Meet the needs of the customer requirements.
b) Achieve continuous improvement in every aspect of the
organizational activities

Glossary of Terms/ Definitions Commonly used in Iron & Steel Industry
Steel Melting Scrap: Steel waste/scrap not usable as such in its existing form which are further re-melted
to produce liquid steel to produce various products. Depending on their form/type, they are classified as
Heavy Melting Scrap, Light Melting Scrap, Turnings/borings etc.
Re-rollable Scrap: Seconds & defective products, cuttings/end cuttings, used steel products like used rails
etc which could be directly used for re-rolling (without resorting to re-melting) into finished products for
specified applications. These are substitutes of steel billets /pencil ingots. Ship breaking generates substantial
quantity of re-rollable steel scrap.
Integrated Steel Plants: Steel plants using iron ore as the basic raw material for production of crude steel
which is further rolled into finished shapes in-house. Conventionally, these plants have captive coke ovens
also and the sensible heat of the outgoing gases from iron/coke making are utilised as fuel for various
applications. It therefore, includes units with in-house coke making (optional), iron making followed by
production of liquid steel & crude steel and finished steel. So all ISPs adopting BF- BOF route and Major
producers adopting Corex-BOF or DRI-EAFor MBF-EOF technology would technically, fall under this
Mini Steel Plants: Conventionally, EAF/IF based steel plants with/ without captive rolling mills were covered
under this category. However, now all steel plants (based on any technology) of capacity upto 5 lakh tpa
are covered under this category.
Primary Steel Producers: Steel (crude and/or finished steel) producers using iron ore as the basic raw
material/input. It therefore, includes in-house iron making followed by production of liquid steel & crude
steel with/without in-house rolling. So, all ISPs adopting BF- BOF route and Major producers adopting
Corex - BOF or DRI-EAF or MBF-EOF technology would fall under this category.
Hot Rolling: Rolling of steel at above the recrystallisation temperature of steel (normally above 1000 C) to
produce Hot Rolled Long products/Flat Products from semis. Ingots are also hot rolled to get semis. At
times blloms are also hot rolled to produce billets. Rolling Mills used for hot rolling are known as Hot
Rolling Mills.
Cold Rolling: Rolling of steel (normally flat products) below the recrystallisation temperature of steel
(normally at room temperature) to produce cold rolled sheets /strips /coils. Mills used for the purpose are
called Cold Rolling Mills.
2Hi/4 Hi/6 Hi/20 Hi Mills: Rolling Mills are classified as 2-High / 2 Hi, 4 Hi and so on depending on
Number of Rolls used in the arrangement/configuration of rolls in single stand. For example, a 2 Hi mill
consist of 2 rolls one above the other known as upper roll and the lower roll. In a 4 Hi mill, there are 4
rolls in a stand2 upper rolls one above the other and 2 lower rolls one above the other.

Ingot Billet

In Ingot casting, the liquid steel flows through a In continuous casting technology liquid steel
refractory channel & fills up cast iron mould under flows from furnace to caster through a copper
static condition from one side. This process has mould. The water in the mould gets cooled and
certain deficiencies. Like:- Refractory particles oscillates at a predetermined rate. The oscillation,
chip-off from the channel and get mixed with cooling and pausing is done in such a controlled
liquid steel thereby causing undesirable inclusions condition that the liquid steel solidifies
in Ingot leading to rolling defect into equiaxed crystals

The liquid steel during the solidification process The gas in liquid steel escapes during solidification
releases gas which gets entrapped in the steel and owing to continuous casting technology
form blowholes and cavities in Ingot

Owing to the process of solidification segregation In billet owing to continuous casting

of chemical alloys takes place. The chemical chemical alloys are uniformly spread
properties vary at different portions of Ingot

In Ingot very harmful defects such as center piping, In continuous casting, no centre piping
blow hole, cracks & inclusions etc. are found blow hole, crack or inclusion is formed

The surface of Ingot develop scabs and laps due to The surface of billet is clear with no scabs and
pouring defects on account of bad mould surface laps due to smooth copper mould surface

TMT Re-bars rolling from Ingots suffer from TMT Re-bars produced from continuous casting
