James Cropper Converting Celebrates Safety Success
James Cropper Converting (JCC), a subsidiary of James Cropper, has achieved a 3rd year without a Lost Time Accident within the workplace.
The Converting subsidiary at James Cropper specialises in ‘Adding Value to Paper and Board’ by applying a vast array of processes and finishes to paper, such as lamination, coating and varnishing.
In 2011, JCC launched the ‘See it, Sort it, Report it’ safety campaign, which actively encourages team members to take the time to identify, report and, if appropriate, resolve any potential hazards within the workplace. This ongoing campaign has been underpinned by regular internal safety meetings and updates, in an effort to take a more proactive, rather than reactive, approach to safety.
John Morgan, JCC Operations Manager, said: “This achievement has been made possible by every team member at JCC taking care as they go about their daily activities and proactively working to improve the safety of their own and their colleagues' workplace.”
Supporting Local Communities
In recognition of this important milestone, the team at JCC were offered a monetary award to celebrate, however, the team felt that it was more fitting to donate this award to a local, safety related charity - Kendal Mountain Search & Rescue.
Kendal Mountain Search & Rescue provide a voluntary service to the South Lakes, Kentmere & The Howgills, relying almost entirely on donations from the public. Their expert team, along with their trained search and rescue dogs, is operational 365 days a year, dealing with a range of call-outs from crag work to water recovery, as well as providing invaluable support to the emergency services in adverse weather conditions.
