At International Paper, awareness and safety go hand in hand. Distractions in the workplace can create safety hazards resulting in someone getting hurt. We teach our teams to maintain a focused mind on the current job task, and practice awareness of surroundings to avoid critical errors and improve on-the-job performance. To encourage safety as a work mindset and lifestyle during our Summer of Safety, we remind our employees to remember to look out for one another, and have the courage to care; avoid rushing when completing tasks; and work with a focus on efficiency, instead of taking shortcuts.
