Nine Years Incident-Free: Irving Wallboard Celebrates Nine Years Without Lost Time

Irving Wallboard has surpassed its safety record: nine years without a lost time incident. This impressive milestone was reached on Feb. 10, 2024 and translates to 3,287 days, or more than 1.97 million labour hours — all accident-free! 

Not only is this the longest-running safety record in the J.D. Irving, Limited Construction and Equipment Division, but it's also the longest record throughout the entire JDI family of companies.

"I am incredibly proud of the Irving Wallboard team for achieving such an outstanding safety record. Safety isn't just a priority; it's ingrained in our culture," said Jason Greeley, General Manager.

The safety record was made possible by a dedicated focus and ongoing commitment to keep one another safe on the job. To provide the employees with the tools they need to succeed, daily safety meetings and pre-task planning help ensure a clear understanding and care around the potential hazards on the job.

"Our employees' commitment to continuously building better habits in the workplace has not only kept one another safe, but it also keeps us aligned with the non-negotiables that we use as goalposts for our actions today and into the future,” said Greeley.

Safety is key to business operations at Irving Wallboard. As a core business value, Irving Wallboard is committed to building a productive environment that fosters an accident-free workplace.
