Wood has been used for thousands of years as a building material for a wide range of applications. The demand for finished lumber pushes manufactures to produce goods as efficiently and cost effectively as possible, which has a direct impact on the thousands of employees working in lumber and plywood mills across the world.
Lumber manufacturing can be extremely hazardous work, and companies cannot afford to lose valuable production time because of injuries. The work environment in lumber mills makes it critical that safety teams constantly evaluate application based hazards, and investigate PPE that reduce the likelihood of injury on the job.
