PotlatchDeltic 2022 ESG Report: Health & Safety
Safety is a core value at PotlatchDeltic. Our team members are our greatest asset, and we focus on their health and safety without compromise. Keeping team members and on-site contractors safe is critical to our success.
Our health and safety commitment is implemented through our Corporate Conduct and Ethics Code, Environmental Health & Safety Policy, Supplier Code of Conduct, and the systems, procedures, and best practices established for our businesses and locations. Our procedures and systems meet or exceed the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and incorporate best practices with a focus on continuous improvement. We strive to continually improve our safety performance, with a goal of zero OSHA recordable injuries at all operations.
Each wood products facility has well-established, site-specific health and safety systems, procedures, and practices to drive full implementation of OSHA and other health and safety requirements and a culture of best practices and exceptional care for people. The safety climate is supported by several division-wide procedures and approaches, which are augmented each year through a focus on continuous improvement. Annual internal and periodic external audits are also used to identify and improve processes. Each facility has an established emergency response plan.
Our timberlands and rural real estate operations use a comprehensive health and safety management system to meet or exceed OSHA requirements, any state requirements, and industry best practices. Each location has emergency response plans for fire, weather, and other emergencies and has annual drills to prepare for these emergencies.
“Creating a safe work environment is not just a job; it’s a commitment to the well-being of our Team Members. Every safety measure we take is an investment in their future and the future success of our Company.”
