So, what is Stockstadt’s secret to effective accident prevention? In recent years, the mill has intensified its occupational safety efforts, with around 700 safety audits and inspections every year, and the mill employees take Sappi’s Global Safety Awareness Day very seriously.
Every routine meeting at Stockstadt begins with the topic of occupational safety and continuous improvement measures apply to all areas of the mill.
One particular success was a poster campaign called ‘Speak Up’ from 2016 to 2019, and more steps have been taken since. Every employee is now required to demonstrate four personal occupational safety measures, and this year each employee has been preparing at least one risk analysis per month to raise awareness of potential dangers.
The simple message is that, when it comes to safety, every contribution counts!
