contractors and visitors. We believe when we
care, commit, engage, feel empowered, and
strive for improvement, only then will we
achieve our ultimate goal of being an injuryfree workplace.
As I begin my role as a safety ambassador
with TAPPISAFE, I am committed to being
a highly-engaged safety leader, and I want
to share and learn from others. Not only do
I want those who work for International Paper
to go home safe at the end of each day, I want
my peers and their teams to go home the
same way.
Kirt Cuevas is vice president, environment,
health and safety for International Paper, the
world's leading producer of pulp and paper.
Cuevas also serves as safety ambassador for
TAPPISAFE, a TAPPI program that offers a
variety of courses developed by safety experts
from our industry's leading manufacturing,
supplier, and contractor companies. Learn
more at www.tappisafe.org.

"We continue to strengthen our
relationships with our union leaders,
customers, suppliers, vendors,
contractors, joint-venture partners, and
other business partners, and I can say with
confidence that it makes a difference."
- Kirt Cuevas, IP

Beginning in our March/April issue:
Safety First
At Paper360°, we value the safety of our readers in their own mills, at their customers' facilities, and at home. That is why we will be offering a new column titled Safety
First, bringing readers tips, insights, and best practices from within the pulp, paper,
and packaging industry. We will be working with TAPPISAFE (www.tappisafe.org),
the Pulp and Paper Safety Association (www.ppsa.org), and suppliers and supporters
throughout the industry to offer relevant content on safety topics. Look for Safety First
near the front of every Paper360°, beginning in our March/April issue. To offer content
suggestions and ideas, contact Jan Bottiglieri at jbottiglieri@tappi.org; to learn about
sponsorship opportunities, contact Shane Holt at sholt@naylor.com.

B&D Industrial Improves Oversight
of Safety Orientation
Since 1947, B&D has been an independently-owned provider
of industrial products and services to mining, manufacturing,
engineering, and OEM companies. B&D Industrial is the corporate
umbrella for three specialized divisions: B&D Technologies, B&D
Service, and Scale Systems.
Russ Klingemier, the company's director of safety, stated that
the traditional safety orientation programs have provided less
than satisfactory options. Many of the programs had "shortcuts"
that allowed employees to pass the test without viewing the whole
orientation. For that reason, they felt that they needed to oversee
the orientations in the office, to ensure each student viewed the
entire orientation.
THE SOLUTION
Once Klingemier and the company's assistant safety director, Ross
Yearwood, became aware of the TAPPISAFE Program, they were
quickly convinced of its ability to provide a more efficient safety
orientation platform. For new B&D employees, the TAPPISAFE
Basic Orientation proves to be a solid awareness safety orientation.
The TAPPISAFE courses do not allow the student to "fast forward"
through the orientation materials, as other programs permitted.
In addition, contractors and employees enjoy having one
orientation resource that centralizes the training, testing, and
reporting. Also, running reports and managing certificates is
much easier for both the contractors and the B&D team with the
TAPPISAFE platform.

JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2018

Results include:
* B&D has increased confidence in the
process. TAPPISAFE has changed the procedures by creating a more thorough and
challenging orientation process. Ultimately,
B&D has a higher confidence level in the
safety orientation of their employees.
* Employees love having one orientation source. The orientation
is easier for employees to track and it saves them time. Each employee
has a TAPPISAFE badge that lists all valid orientations, eliminating
the need for them to carry 20-30 safety cards.
* TAPPISAFE consolidates the reporting process. Both B&D
and its employees can easily identify where and when safety orientations are required. Reports are easy to produce. There are no delays
in creating proof of training for each employee to carry until the
TAPPISAFE badges are received.
* TAPPISAFE reduces overall training costs. Instead of an orientation expense of US$20 per site, TAPPISAFE's Basic Orientation costs
just US$27.50, which certifies B&E employees for ALL sites that use
the TAPPISAFE program and verifies that they have taken awarenesslevel safety orientation. Individual site orientation becomes a much
shorter and more economical course (only US$10 per site). Depending
on the number of sites, the TAPPISAFE program can represent a
savings of more than 40 percent.
The B&D Safety team and their employees have found the
TAPPISAFE Program to be a much smoother system for all involved.
