National Safety Month: June 2024


Our blueprint for staying safe at Hope Timber Pallet & Recycling in June 2024 and beyond! 

The National Safety Council (NSC) works to highlight preventable injuries at work and home. According to NSC, preventable injuries are the third leading cause of death in the U.S. — which is why, at Hope Timber Pallet & Recycling, the safety of our employees is our top priority.

Maintaining a safe work environment is paramount to ensuring the delivery of top-notch products to our customers. We reassess work procedures annually, provide training alongside technological advancements, and uphold safety standards to continue to deliver the best customer service.

Blueprint for staying safe
At Hope Timber, we pride ourselves on continuous improvement, and this commitment extends to our safety procedures. Our procedures are designed to safeguard our employees, partners, and customers. Key elements of our safety blueprint include:

Safety training during orientation to ensure incoming team members are aware of company protocols and procedures for quality control.
Training per machine so teammates adhere to safety, efficiency, and compliance standards, thereby promoting equipment longevity. (Equipment access is restricted to trained personnel only.)
Plant safety committees to maintain accountability among team members and keep the safety of others and themselves a priority.
No harmful materials to allow for a safe work environment, ensuring team members can work confidently without the fear of unnecessary exposure.
Personal protection equipment (PPE) that is mandatory for all employees to prevent risks. (PPE includes safety glasses, hard hats, safety shoes, gloves, and more.)

Culture promoting safety
A culture built from accountability, responsibility, and mutual respect is essential to complementing safety procedures and preventing accidents in the workplace. At Hope Timber, our commitment to mutual support, personal responsibility, and other core values extends to our safety procedures. We ensure each member of our team is aware of our safety procedures to prevent any risks of injuries to each other and themselves.
