Norbord celebrates twin million-hour safety record

Published:  13 August, 2015

Two Norbord Europe mills recorded more than one million hours without a lost time accident (LTA) in 2014.

Norbord's plant in South Molton also achieved one million hours without a LTA, the mill's third safety record in the past 10 years, following on from its first in 2007 and second in 2010.

One million hours is equivalent to one person working for 350 years without a LTA, the company says.

The manufacturer of wood-based panels produces Sterling OSB, Caberwood MDF and Caberboard particleboard products including flooring systems and Contiboard.
