As workers’ comp attorneys, we hear far too often the tragic story of an employee who has been injured on the job. So we were happy to read on TheCabin.net that the International Paper plant of Conway, AR received an award for going one million hours without an accident.
A number of state officials were on hand as well as a representative from the U.S. Department of Labor OSHA voluntary protection program, to congratulate the manufacturer and its 155 employees for setting a record for safety. The one million hours were accumulated without a lost day away from work due to a work related injury or illness between July 2008 and September 2011.
International Paper makes boxes for a number of businesses across the country. The manufacturer also has a location in Mt. Carmel, Schuylkill County.
