In February 2014, the Kettle River mill achieved eight years, or 1.2 million man hours, without a Lost Time Injury (LTI).
“This milestone did not occur by accident, no pun intended. What was accomplished was every employee’s commitment to health and safety, and to looking out for one another. Our safety milestones have occurred through everyone’s involvement and accountability to working safely,” says Ernie Miranda (Kettle River-Buckhorn, Health & Safety Manager). “Our commitment is and always will be to perform our work in a safe, healthy and environmentally friendly manner.”
To honour this outstanding safety milestone, the site hosted a dinner celebration in late March (pictured above).
