Norbord’s South Molton plant enjoys safety star recertification

Published:  02 December, 2015

Norbord’s South Molton plant has been awarded unconditional recertification of its Norbord Safety Star – only the second time a mill has received such a high level of safety certification.

Maria Collett, health and safety manager, said: “The auditors were very positive regarding the improvements to our site, our EHS programmes and our safety culture since they last visited in May 2012. Since our first Safety Star audit, we have improved guarding in the Cabedecor/Lamination department and enhanced many of our other safety practices.

“The plant is now promoting the initiatives as best practice to Norbord’s other three mills in Cowie and Inverness in Scotland and Genk in Belgium.

Ms Collett added: “It’s a continuous process and we are always looking for ways to improve and develop a world-class safety culture... work towards this never stops.”
