Domtar Sets Safety Goals Aligned With Its Sustainability Agenda Domtar announced that it has set two ambitious safety goals and has identified pathways to achieve them, as it looks towards 2030. 1. Attain zero actual serious injuries and fatalities (SIFs) for employees and contractors, with a focus on SIF pre- vention. The company will work toward this goal by en- hancing proactive prevention programs across all of its facilities with a consistent, company-wide approach. The company also plans to shift from tracking OSHA’s total frequency rate (TFR) to tracking OSHA’s lost-time fre- quency rate (LTFR), which offers a stronger correlation to SIFs. 2. Reduce lost-time frequency rate (LTFR) by 63 per- cent from 2020. Domtar aims to be in the top decile of sim- ilar companies reporting LTFR data to the American Forest & Paper Association. The company will also work to reach an annual safety goal of 0.10 or less by 2030. To achieve this, it will track leading indicators and focus on managing risk assessment efforts and behaviours that result in reduced exposure to life-altering events. “As we developed these six focus areas for our sustain- ability agenda the next several years, we knew that safety goals will continue to play a vital role,” says Paige Goff, Vice President for Sustainability at Domtar. “While many
people equate the term ‘sustainability’ with nature, we know there is nothing more important to our sustainability than the health and safety of our colleagues and commu- nities.” Domtar said in a statement that it recognizes safety as an essential element of its success and sustainability. Its safety goals are a top priority in its sustainability agenda moving toward 2030. The company explained that while it works deliberately to avoid any type of injury, the focus of its safety goals is the most serious injuries that are life-al- tering. “We are working to identify and eliminate all gaps be- tween ‘work as imagined’ and ‘work as performed,’” says Larry Warren, Domtar’s Senior Director of Health and Safe- ty. “These efforts will help us reduce all types of injuries and particularly those with the potential to be life-altering, while continuing to build a just culture for all people at Domtar facilities.” Domtar, part of the Paper Excellence Group, is the larg- est integrated manufacturer and marketer of uncoated freesheet paper in North America, and one of the largest manufacturers of pulp in the world. Its network of 11 pulp and paper mills and nine manufacturing and converting fa- cilities gives it approximately 2.7 million tons of papermak- ing capacity and 1.5 million air-dried metric tons (ADMT) of market pulp capacity annually to help us to serve its customers and support its employees and communities.
