Corrugated Industry Recognizes 416 Plants For Safety Achievements The Fibre Box Association (FBA) and AICC – The Indepen- dent Packaging Association will recognize 416 corrugated industry plants for safety achievements in 2020. Safety Awards are given based on data compiled for the recently released 2020 Corrugated Container Industry Annual Report of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses. Participants appreciate the ability to recognize their plants’ dedication to safety. “This is very meaningful to our teams,” one award winner wrote. For the calendar year 2020, the associations will pres- ent 151 Perfect Plant Awards to plants achieving zero in- cidents. An additional 265 facilities will receive Safety Excellence Awards for achieving no lost workdays due to job-related injury or illness. The report provides detailed data for more than 169 million hours worked at 723 participating plants. It also in- cludes trend information presented in graphs for record- able cases, restricted duty cases, and days away from work. Award winners are presented as a percentage of total plant participation and the Safety Award Winners page serves as a great summary of achievement including a count of winners by category, number of Perfect Plant Awards, number of Safety Excellence Awards, total awards given, and the percentage of plants awarded.

Participation in the report was voluntary and open to all corrugator or sheet plant facilities manufacturing corrugat- ed products. Participants can view the full report on either of the association’s websites, or www. .
