Liberty Paper Earns Workplace Safety Award
Liberty Paper (LPI) will be recognized for excellence in workplace safety and health during the 2024 Minnesota Safety and Health Conference on April 30 & May 1.
According to Paul Aasen, CEO of the Minnesota Safety Council, "Keeping the people we work and live with safe is a full-time job." He continues by congratulating Liberty Paper, stating, "Congratulations to Liberty Paper for investing the time and energy to make work and life safer inside their organization and beyond."
LPI will be honored by the Minnesota Safety Council Governor's Workplace Safety through the awards program, coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council. Since 1934, the annual Governor's Workplace Safety Awards program has honored Minnesota employers with exceptional safety performance. Applicants are judged on several years of injury data as it compares with their industry's national and state statistics, and on their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program. Winners are recognized at five levels.
LPI received a Silver Achievement Award, in recognition of their excellence in occupational injury prevention throughout 2023. The Silver Achievement recognizes achieving an incident rate better than the 50th percentile of both the state and national average.
This recognition reflects LPI's commitment to safety, which Kristie Frydenlund, EHS Manager at Liberty Paper, emphasizes: "We are proud that LPI has ranked safety as our number one strength for the last several years! Our commitment to safety is not just a duty, but a reflection of LPI's culture and our respect for one another."
The Minnesota Safety Council, founded in 1928, is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in Minnesota by preventing unintentional injuries on the road, at work, at home, and in the community.
