Distribution center passes significant safety milestone

 


The 100-member employee team at the “xpedx” distribution center in Cincinnati has worked 5 years without an OSHA-recordable incident. Cincinnati-based xpedx is a division of International Paper and distributes packing, print supplies, and related equipment.

Employees attribute their safety success to:

•  Education and training,
•  A focus on housekeeping,
•  Safety audits, and
•  Employee engagement.

All team members are encouraged to be involved through activities like serving on safety teams and making behavioral observations.

“Working without a recordable incident for more than 5 years is a tremendous accomplishment that requires the active participation of every team member,” said general manager Chris Baum. “Start Safe/End Safe” is not just a slogan but is the way employees approach their workdays.
