A-tissue - Carter Holt Harvey, Kawerau

The Carter Holt Harvey Kawerau manufacturing facilityThe Carter Holt Harvey Kawerau manufacturing facility has a reputation as somewhat of a local softspot churning out endless metres of tissue. Extensive manufacturing floorspace, dedicated to continuous production and an enviable array of specialised equipment, is a hive of activity in the bid to keep up with the sneezing, teary eye and personal care demands of the market.

With ever increasing OSH safety requirements and a desire to minimise workplace hazards, Carter Holt Harvey have implemented a Resene Non-Skid Deck and Path finish on the factory floor to provide a gripped surface for workers to reduce the risk of falls.

Resene Non-Skid Deck & Path was selected following a trial of the system shortly after it was launched. Trial patches were applied in high foot traffic areas and monitored. Each patch performed with ease, surpassing expectations and easily justifying the rollout of the coating solution to the broader factory environ. To date 500 square metres of floor have been coated in Resene Non-Skid Deck & Path tinted to Resene Haast Shale (mid grey), with plans to double this coated floor area by year's end.

With Resene Non-Skid Deck & Path keeping a grip on workers, all are free to forget their feet and focus on keeping the tissue flowing.
