Safety & Health Award Winners

Resolute-LP Engineered Wood and LP won Safest Company Awards in their respective categories while the coveted Innovation in Safety Award went to two winners: LP of Jasper, TX, for the Equipment-Based Innovation Award, and Boise Cascade of Kettle Falls, WA, for the Jeff Wagner Process-Based Innovation Award.

LP, a producer of engineered wood products in Canada, the U.S., and South America, earned top honors among companies with four or more mills, with a 2015 average Weighted Incident Rate (WIR) of 2.27. Resolute-LP Engineered Wood, which produces I-joists at mills in Larouche and St. Prime, Québec, won its award in the category for companies with three or fewer mills. The company posted a perfect 0.00 WIR for 2015.

The Jasper LP mill’s original “Secure Clamp for Saw Chain Lifting” equipment innovation and the Kettle Fall Boise Cascade mill’s "Safety Performance Recognition Program” took top honors out of 31 Innovation in Safety Award entries.
