The paper industry takes the health, safety and welfare of its employees very seriously, and is constantly reviewing and improving procedures to make the industry even safer.

Within the framework of CPI, health and safety is a high priority which Members value as an integral part of the service it provides. As such CPI serves the health and safety needs of Member companies, their respective sites and employees by:

  • keeping Members informed regarding Health and Safety Regulations and Best Practice;
  • co-coordinating PABIAC activities throughout the Membership;
  • providing and/or facilitating Health and Safety training.

Health and Safety is a key focal point across the industry, and CPI Members are kept informed about Health and Safety Regulations and Best Practice. Health and Safety training is also facilitated.

HSE LinkCPI works in partnership with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and trade unions, through the Paper and Board Industry Advisory Committee (PABIAC), to agree new policies for the industry. This has resulted in some significant advances in safety for the industry’s employees, more productive working practices for the industry and a significant reduction in the number of working days lost due to accidents.

Since 1998, the papermaking industry has shown a determined effort to be amongst the best performing industries in manufacturing. By setting hard accident reduction targets and through industry initiatives, statistics display a continuous downward trend in workplace accidents and significant reductions in major injuries.

Monthly Injury statistics are available to full members.
