At Resolute, safety and community relations go hand in hand. Having surpassed its milestone of 250,000 injury-free hours, our Thunder Bay pulp and paper mill team was awarded $5,000 in charitable donation dollars from Resolute’s Board of Directors Safety Award program. This year, the Joint Health and Safety Committee representing the workers and management chose to donate the proceeds to the upcoming Ronald McDonald House Charity Golf Tournament to be held in August.
For every 250,000 injury-free hours worked, our operations can earn $5,000 to donate to a local charity. Last year, the Thunder Bay pulp and paper mill banked a total of 750,000 injury-free hours. It was an impressive achievement that translated into $15,000 donated to local charities.
In 2014, the Board of Directors Safety Awards across all of Resolute’s operations were accompanied by a total of C$280,000 in donations to charities chosen by mill employees.
