Another record year for safety

This past year was very special for safety in Sappi North America (SNA). Our employees achieved their best-ever lost time injury frequency rate (LTIFR) result at 0.25. Everyone stepped up to make this achievement possible. For the entire year, we had only six lost-time injuries, and during the second quarter of the year, we had zero lost-time injuries—our ultimate goal and the first time it was ever achieved. On May 19, 2019, our Cloquet Mill employees operated 1.3 million hours without a single lost-time incident. Our Allentown employees continued their record-breaking streak with another year of zero recordable lost-time incidents. For our Somerset Mill employees, it was their secondbest year on record. Westbrook employees also made strides with a new Fit Stop Wellness Centre, joined by more than 130 employees. At Sappi, our common goal is to ensure safety—working hard every day to get each other home to our families, friends, and communities where we are needed most.
