GEORGIA-PACIFIC READIES FOR START-UP

 GEORGIA-PACIFIC READIES FOR START-UP
 PROSPERITY, S.C., Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- In a matter of weeks,


Georgia-Pacific (NYSE: GP) will be producing plywood again in Prosperity, S.C.
 More importantly, 240 area residents will be back to work. The process begins next week, when every employee will attend an orientation/training program.
 A team of 20 Georgia-Pacific human resource and safety managers from operations across the Southeast will be in Prosperity next week to hold orientation. This team will hold 10-hour sessions for three consecutive days, starting Tuesday.
 "The main focus of this training will be safety," said Buster Parler, area human resources manager. "Georgia-Pacific's number one priority is safety, and we want to emphasize this again before start-up of the plant."
 Before the Prosperity plant was destroyed by fire last January, workers had gone over 2 million hours without anyone losing a work day due to an accident. "This is a great group of employees, and we know they will continue to make the Prosperity plant one of the safest in the industry," said Parler.
 Safety training will include sessions on lockout/tagout procedures, electrical safe work practices, chemical hazard communications, and general safety rules. Other areas that will be covered include administrative announcements, insurance and tax procedures, and hearing testing and conservation training. Time will also be allotted for employee questions.
 The orientation programs will be held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Mid-Carolina Country Club in Prosperity.
