The CertainTeed Insulation plant in Ottawa is the latest to be welcomed into Saint-Gobain’s Millionaires Club
 
CertainTeed Insulation Canada is proud to announce that the CertainTeed Insulation plant in Ottawa is the latest plant to be inducted into the exclusive Saint-Gobain’s Millionaires Club — a program designed by the parent company to reward plants that have operated at least 1 million work hours without a lost-time accident.
 
The Ottawa plant is only the 12th out of 66 Saint-Gobain insulation facilities worldwide to be awarded this honour. 
 
John Polnick, EHS Manager, at the Ottawa plant, says, “Our employees are really proud to have worked over four years without a loss-time accident. I’ve been on both sides of the business. I was a production worker for 12 years before moving into management four years ago so I know the importance of being recognized for a job well done.”
 
The employees were celebrated by the company at two dinner and dance events. The plant operates 24 hours a day so employees work 12-hour shifts. Two events meant each and every employee could attend. The Ottawa plant will now be able to use the Millionaires Club logo in communications and erect signage featuring the logo inside and outside the facility to promote its accomplishment.
 
CertainTeed fibre glass insulation products made in Canada are manufactured in a way that minimizes the environmental impact on the planet. The CertainTeed Unfaced Sustainable Insulation® batt product line is an insulation material made of fibre glass that consists of rapidly renewable content, a high percentage of recycled glass, and a new plant-based binder that has no formaldehyde, harsh acrylics, dyes or unnecessary fire retardants added. 
 
All CertainTeed insulation products improve building energy efficiency, helping to lower energy costs throughout the life of the structure. Sustainable Batt Insulation acts as both thermal and acoustical insulation and is ideal for floors, walls and ceilings in residential, commercial, and institutional settings.
