The Rex Lumber Company is committed to the health and safety of our customers and employees. It is our top priority to preserve the health and wellness of all, including those who work with us, visit our facilities, or purchase our products. This commitment also extends to the greater environment we share.
Lumberyard and manufacturing environments may create wood dust and other airborne materials that may be hazardous to the health without proper masks, goggles, and other protective equipment. In addition, primers, finishes and other chemical coatings often require protective equipment and special handling instructions. Our employees are provided with the appropriate equipment and instructed as to the proper handling of all materials prior to their use. This includes hygiene measures, eye protection, hand protection, skin protection, respiratory protection, and environmental protection.
In addition, we prominently display Safety Data Sheets. See links below to Safety Data Sheet PDFs. These include a detailed analysis of the chemical or substance in question, an explanation of the potential health and physical hazards, a disclosure of the chemical or substance’s stability and reactivity, and how to respond effectively to exposure situations. These documents also include details about proper handling and storage, accidental release measures, first aid measures, and protective equipment recommended.
For the greater wellness of our planet, Rex Lumber is also committed to renewable resources and responsible forest stewardship. Together, we can continue to make more informed choices to help protect our most precious renewable resource—trees and timber products. We are a proud supplier of FSC® Certified wood products since 2001 and remain dedicated to advancing Green building standards that promote low impact construction.
