On April 12, the Arkansas Department of Labor presented two safety awards to recognize our Arkansas operations for their excellence in on-the-job safety.

The One Year Accumulative Safety Award was presented to recognize that our Urbana Sawmill operations had 120 employees who achieved one year without a lost day away from work due to a work-related injury or illness between Jan. 1, 2016 and Jan. 1, 2017.

The Three Year Accumulative Safety Award was presented to recognize that 58 employees at our El Dorado Laminating Plant successfully accumulated three years without a lost day from work due to a work-related injury or illness between Jan. 1, 2014 and Dec. 31, 2016.

Congratulations to everyone at our Urbana Sawmill and El Dorado Laminating Plant who contributed to these achievements. Safety is our number one priority at Canfor and it always gives us great pride to succeed in this area and to know that we have a safe environment that allows our employees to return home safe at the end of the day.

Award ceremonies were held for all employees at both the Urbana Sawmill and our El Dorado Laminating Plant on Wednesday, April 12.
