Taking the Heat - A Steel Worker’s Story


By Richard Sarver

A steel mill is not a typical work environment.  The production of steel is carried out under conditions of extreme heat, noise, and dirt  To make matters worse, the potential for danger exists in all phases of steelmaking.

Drawing on more than three decades of experience, the author of Taking the Heat explains some of the challenges steelworkers face every day as they earn a living.  While the work can be difficult, Taking the Heat demonstrates that steelworkers generally possess a can-do attitude and a feeling of camaraderie derived from overcoming difficult tasks together.  Some of them even manage to maintain a sense of humor.
