More than one hundred steelworkers have died while working at a local steel mill since 1909– the last fatality in 1999– and officials are hoping to keep it that way.

A memorial service was held on Thursday for those steelworkers killed while working at Weirton Steel, now known as Arcellor Mittal.

Union officials recognize that this is a dangerous occupation, but he is confident that they have some of the most dedicated safety specialists in Weirton who are working to make it a safe place for hundreds of steelworkers.
