We value our team members. That’s why we make safety a top priority at Evergreen Packaging.
Heat, pressure, movement. These are the physical conditions needed to make paper, but they could pose risks to our employees if not managed correctly. Our goal is a safe work environment and a culture of safety awareness.
We are committed to achieving zero injuries in our workplaces and managing a sustainable business.
To achieve this goal, we developed a program called Target Zero, which is in effect at all of our facilities. The objective of Target Zero is to encourage team members to take responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others (at work and at home). It is an ongoing process of identifying and eliminating unsafe conditions and raising awareness.
We’re proud of the fact that our key metric for safety, Total Incidence Rate (TIR), has declined by 50 percent since the formation of Evergreen Packaging in 2007. We’ve surpassed the industry average of 2.2, and for the past five years, we have achieved a TIR better than World Class (<.9). And we won’t stop there. We’re committed to Target Zero and to a safer work environment for our employees.
