11 March 15: Safety Stand-down

On 17 March 15, Pulp & Paper Radio International will debut a program six months in the making, "The Safety Show '15."  You will find from this program how poor the industry's safety record really is.


Can the Light Green Machine Institute's principles help improve this record?  Absolutely--for any piece of equipment that does not exist cannot be a source of injury (think of all the discussion we have had on installed spares). Further, any piece of equipment that can be made lighter in weight requires smaller hoisting devices to put it in position.


We are standing down and urge everyone else to do the same as we think of safety.  We urge you to listen to the show and spread it far and wide. There is no excuse for the dismal safety record in our industry.

We would like to hear from you. Please send an email to [email protected] 

with "LGMI Frontiers" in the subject line.
