The Forest Products Group Trust (FPGT) was formed in 1993 to address an urgent need for quality, affordable workers’ compensation insurance for those in the forest products industry at a time when Maine had no good options for such insurance. Today, the Trust is going strong and continues to provide safety and financial rewards to its members. The FPGT attracts members who are serious about safety and committed to creating a strong loss prevention culture in their companies.
Team Hancock is proud of our safety-first culture . Undoubtedly, safety is our #1 priority and it is everyone’s responsibility-every minute of every day. No task or performance goal is so important that safety should be jeopardized in order to accomplish it. Work place safety is an absolute team sport. Watch this short video highlighting safety, our #1 core value!
Hancock Lumber’s sawmill operations are also a frequent recipient of the annual NeLMA safety awards recognizing their teams and operations for outstanding safety performances.
