PIM Safety and Environmental Recognition Program

MINNEAPOLIS, MN— Printing Industry Midwest (PIM) members have options regarding Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) recognition or certification programs.  The most comprehensive, locally available and on-site program is the PIM Great/Green Printer program.


This is a recognition program that PIM members have been able to participate in since the late 1990’s.  This program addresses all EHS issues facing printing companies.  A brief description of the program and the participants in that program can be found at www.pimw.org under the Environment and Safety tab.  Those Great Printers value the expertise, safety and environmental advice and hazards reduction provided with the Great Printer certification.


The Printing Industries of America (PIA) offers a Safety Shield designation to their Best Workplaces in the Americas award program.  The Safety Shield program assesses some of the safety requirements printing companies need to address.  If you need help addressing safety items listed in the Safety Shield program or for any EHS question, contact Paul Gutkowski at 612.400.6205 or paulg@pimw.org.
