Raising the Bar on Safety Standards LP Innovation Drives New, Safer Dust Control Tool

This month, the APA–Engineered Wood Association presented LP Building Products with the 2014 Safest Company Award at the annual conference in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. This is the fifth time in the past seven years that the APA has named LP the safest company with four or more mills. 

At LP, safety is the foundation of everything we do. In fact, many of our mills are being recognized with LP safety milestone awards, and we are continually working toward new safety strategies, tools and techniques. 

During the APA conference, LP Dawson Creek Manager Steve Abbey spoke about the new work LP is doing to promote safety in the mills. For example, LP Dawson Creek has developed a tool that mixes water and compressed air for dust control, which improves safety on the jobsite.
