The Weyerhaeuser Company sawmill in Zwolle is the recipient of the 2019 Sawmill Safety Award in Division I, presented by the Southern Forest Products Association (SFPA).  The Zwolle facility maintained a perfect safety record during all of 2019, with no lost-time occupational injuries or illnesses. This is the fifth consecutive year the Zwolle mill has received this respected award.

SFPA lumber manufacturer members are considered for the award based on information submitted regarding occupational injuries and illnesses. The results for 2019 included reports from 52 mills that recorded nearly 18 million employee hours. Safety performance is judged by how each mill’s safety record stacks up against facilities with comparable lumber output throughout the year.
