The Fibre Box Association (FBA) and AICC – The Independent Packaging Association will recognize 422 corrugated industry plants for safety achievements in 2019.

Safety Awards are given based on data compiled for the recently released 2019 Corrugated Container Industry Annual Report of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses.

For the calendar year 2019, the associations will present 154 Perfect Plant Awards to plants achieving zero incidents. An additional 268 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 167 million hours worked at 711 participating plants. It also includes trend information presented in graphs for recordable 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 corrugated products. Participants can view the full report on FBA’s website at www.fibrebox.org.
