Shawn Ray, Financial Analyst at Sappi North America’s headquarters in Boston, felt a personal connection when he decided to participate in the 2019 “Pan-Mass Challenge.”
“I ride to make a difference,” said Shawn. “My family has been participating for the better part of 10 years now, and I was lucky enough to join the team. Since losing my grandmother and mentor, Carol Ryan, to cancer in 2014, I knew that I had to get involved, and riding in the Pan-Mass was the best decision I have ever made.”
Sappi North America received a $100,000 training grant in September from the Minnesota Office of Higher Education and Department of Labor and Industry. The grant allows Sappi to strengthen the local workforce by providing advanced technical training to employees, while improving functions and safety at its Cloquet Mill. SNA has participated in the grant program six times and continues to offer the opportunity for up to 25 employees each year to join a training cohort. Through the years, this grant has provided on-site training to more than 100 employees.
This past year was very special for safety in Sappi North America (SNA). Our employees achieved their best-ever lost time injury frequency rate (LTIFR) result at 0.25. Everyone stepped up to make this achievement possible. For the entire year, we had only six lost-time injuries, and during the second quarter of the year, we had zero lost-time injuries—our ultimate goal and the first time it was ever achieved. On May 19, 2019, our Cloquet Mill employees operated 1.3 million hours without a single lost-time incident.
“We are all in it together,” says Jay Arnston, fiberline control room operator and president of the USW Local Chapter 11-63 at the Cloquet Mill. “It wasn’t always that way,” he says, describing his many years of union involvement with Sappi and previous owners of the mill. “But we’ve come a long way. There is a lot more transparency, and we are informed about a lot of the decision making.”
