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 2016 average Weighted Incident Rate (WIR) of 1.57. Resolute-LP Engineered Wood, which produces I-joists at mills in Larouche and Saint Prime, Québec, won its award in the category for companies with three or fewer mills. The company posted a perfect 0.00 WIR for 2016.

The Two Harbor LP mill’s original “Saw Handling Articulating Arm” equipment innovation and the Oakdale RoyOMartin mill’s "Safety Banners” took top honors out of 26 Innovation in Safety Award entries.
