Paper Mill Industry Safety

The pulp and paper mill industry is known for its hazardous work conditions. Because we still rely on paper in so many products, it remains an essential industry. Look at this list of reported injuries and deaths from OSHA, and you will get an idea of the dangerous on-the-job hazards. There are so many moving parts to paper manufacturing that safety should always be front and center.
