K-C Everett facility to receive Crystal Eagle Award

On August 26th, 2010 Everett Washington's Kimberly–Clark (K-C) pulp and tissue manufacturing facility hit a tremendous safety target. On this day Kimberly –Clark surpassed 1,000,000 safe man-hours without incurring a “K-C Recordable” injury.

This is a milestone that had never before been achieved at this facility and that makes this K-C location a standout amongst the company's plants across the country. It is a direct result of its employees' and management's dedication to living their safety mantra, “Home Safe, Together We Can.”

Per Chris Isenberg, the paper mill's manager, “In 2007 we averaged a recordable injury every 40,000 hours. By attaining 1,000,000 safe hours, we have stopped 25 team members from sustaining significant injury (1,000,000 safe hours divided by 40,000 hours).”

In addition to an excellent safety culture and sustained efforts in safety awareness, a significant factor in K-C reaching this goal is its unique partnership with InjuryFree, a locally-based, national firm that provides at-the-jobsite, injury prevention programs for large industry.

InjuryFree's “Employee Maintenance Centers”, or EMCs, provide employees with easy access to solutions for aches and pains before they develop into work place injuries. The EMC also serves as the mechanism by which employees proactively maintain their strength, flexibility and “fitness for duty” so they can do their jobs safely and enjoy their personal lives, “InjuryFree!”

To celebrate this momentous occasion, K-C held a barbecue for its employees and their families, complete with live music and activities for the kids. Good times were had by all.

In recognition of this achievement the K-C Everett facility will receive the coveted “Crystal Eagle Award” for reaching 1,000,000 safe man-hours. Of the three K-C facilities in North America with an InjuryFree program, the Everett, WA facility is the second K-C location to receive this award in the last 13 months.

InjuryFree, the country's leading innovator of work place injury prevention services, provides cost-effective health and safety solutions for the workplace. InjuryFree's products and services successfully help employees live, work and retire pain-free.
