Safety History

Hammond Lumber Company established a Safety Committee in 1985. Since that time, the Safety Committee, chaired by Safety Director, Bruce Pelletier, has met monthly to identify and correct potential health and safety hazards. Policies on correct safety procedures for all areas of the company are discussed and formulated at these meeting.

Our Sawmill and Planer mill employees have received numerous Safety Awards from the Northeast Lumber Manufacturers Association Loss Control Committee over the years.

Continuous Training

To support this aggressive safety program, Hammond Lumber Company provides extensive safety training and re-training for all of its employees. In April 1991, Hammond Lumber Company finalized its own, company-specific Health and Safety Manual.  Since then, the Safety Manual has been presented to and reviewed with all new employees on their first day of hire.

In addition, Hammond Lumber Company participates in the Maine Department of Transportation Drug Screening program and has a comprehensive Back-to-Work program.
