Safety

A key aspect of our company culture is commitment to the safety and wellbeing of our employees. This is evidenced by our strong mill safety record and the mill safety program which underlies that record.

Safety on the job is often perceived to be an ‘individual’ responsibility, much as a machine operator is responsible for the operation of their machine. However, employees do not work alone. Employees have an entire network of co-workers to provide support and guidance. Team work is a must in order to create a safe working environment. In that respect, our mill-wide Safety Program gives employees the opportunity to provide valuable input into all facets of the program.

A successful safety program requires each person in the organization, regardless of position, to understand and accept safety as their individual and personal responsibility. We put this into practice by performing safety observations and offering immediate feedback with a strong focus on positive reinforcement of safe behavior.
As demonstration of Interstate's commitment to this responsibility, we direct the following initiatives at the corporate level:
  • Compliance with all applicable state and federal safety regulations.
  • Development of a documented corporate-wide safety manual.
  • Standardization of safety objectives and activities.
  • Identification of in-house resources for safety.
  • Assignment of authority and responsibility.
Responsibility for assuring that the safety program works effectively is a core function of all management and supervisory personnel. Managers are responsible for the program’s execution in the operations under their control; department heads, superintendents and line supervisors are accountable for the safety of the employees under their direction.

We are dedicated to working together to keep safety a primary, ongoing focus in our daily lives at Interstate Paper.
