Multimedia with summary
Sappi North America’s mill in Cloquet, Minnesota, reached a company milestone of over 2 million hours worked without a lost-time injury.
This achievement comes on the heels of the mill’s achievement of 1 million hours worked without injury.
Under the leadership of President and CEO Mark Gardner, safety has become a top priority for Sappi North America. While all three mills emphasize safety, the Cloquet Mill’s performance is exemplary. Some of this can be attributed to four initiatives implemented in the past year.
When you work in a remote location, every second counts in an emergency.
