Rolland’s converting centre in Saint-Jérôme, Que. has reached a safety milestone, completing one year without a recordable incident.

In a statement, the company says the team achieved a recordable incident rate of zero because management and the workplace health and safety committee established common priorities, and associates on the floor participated in continuous discussion to ensure a safe environment.

The safety committee also provides continual education and training for the staff.

To make safety information available to team members, Rolland Converting Center maintains a tracking board that keeps a running tally of consecutive no recordable days and provides updates on safety progress.

“Despite all the changes in recent years, the team has always shown perseverance to succeed,” says Simon Roy, operations director for Rolland.

“In these unprecedented times, they have shown even more resilience and kept health and safety practices top of mind on a daily basis. I am very proud of each individual that has helped us reach this milestone and I’m confident that we will achieve many more in the future.”
