Health & Safety at Danzer

Danzer believes that offering a positive work environment, where employees feel valued and enjoy coming to work every day, can have a huge impact on morale and employee performance – and directly influence employee’s health. In particular, Danzer takes every precaution to protect the health and safety of Danzer employees and contractors onsite. Specific activities to manage health and safety at Danzer include

  • Installing advanced safety solutions to prevent injuries
  • Employee training
  • Tracking trends on injuries at Danzer sites for targeted prevention

Investing in technical measures to prevent injuries

Using wood fuel for energy (“Biomass”) is a winning proposition for the environment. Any fuel made up of chips or particles can create dust that poses a risk of fire and explosion. At its Darlington facility in Pennsylvania, Danzer has installed a Spark Detection System to proactively detect and prevent fires in the saw dust collection, handling, and storage systems. Other locations have invested in similar solutions for this and other risks. A special solution is the plant cooling system in Edinburgh, Indiana, to protect employees from heat-related illness in the summer.

Safety Training

Danzer trains its employees and notifies third-party contractors about location-specific health, safety and environment standards. Depending on the location and job category, Danzer employees receive on average 2 to 4 hours of formal environmental and safety training per year.
