Recognizing Safety Excellence
The Operation Safe Shop is a biennial competition that reviews safety program effectiveness and excellence in several categories of member companies, and awards first, second and third place honors in each category that receives entries. The competition considers entries in the following categories:
• Corrugator Plants
• Sheet Suppliers, Sheet Plants with fewer than 50 employees
• Sheet Plants with more than 50 employees
• Folding Carton and Rigid Box companies
Operation Safe Shop Competition is more than just a compilation of man-hours and recordable injuries and illnesses. It is a company-wide examination of such things as the company's overall safety program, ownership commitment, the company's safety practices and training procedures, safety awareness methods and incentives, maintenance programs and housekeeping, and other key elements of box plant safety.
The next Operation Safe Shop Competition will take place in 2018. Applications will open in January 2018.
