2011 Safety & Health Award Winners

LP, Nashville, Tennessee and Canfor-LP OSB Limited Partnership, Fort St. John, British Columbia won Safest Company Awards in their respective categories while Roseburg Forest Products Co., Riddle, Oregon, earned the coveted Innovation in Safety Award in the 2011 Safety and Health Awards Program sponsored annually by APA for the structural wood panel and engineered wood products industry.

LP, a leading North American manufacturer of structural wood panels and engineered wood products, earned top honors among companies with four or more mills with a 2011 average Weighted Incident Rate (WIR) of 2.35. Canfor-LP, which produces oriented strand board, won its award in the category for companies with three or fewer mills. The company posted a perfect 0.00 WIR for 2011.

Roseburg’s Riddle engineered wood products mill took the innovation prize for the implementation of the “Glass Walls” program. Every shift in every department has a cell lead that is responsible for monitoring safety, quality, delivery and cost information daily and briefing the rest of the crew through a “Report Out”. Safety is the first item of discussion at every Report Out, and each team member is encouraged to voice all safety concerns. Read the full story.
