Poultry Workplace Safety Kit available

The US Poultry & Egg Association's Poultry & Egg Institute has released a Poultry Industry Workplace Safety Issues Kit, which highlights the progress achieved by the industry in workplace safety.

The poultry industry has undergone numerous changes over the past 60 years. These changes have and continue to present challenges in maintaining safe working conditions, particularly in the area of poultry processing. In response, the industry has focused considerable attention toward addressing these challenges and the results are evident. Processing injury and illness incidence rates have dropped dramatically.

This Issues Kit outlines some of the many safety challenges the industry has faced over the years, a few of the interventions employed to address them, and some of the many educational endeavors undertaken and collaborations pursued with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) of the US Department of Labour, all with the goal of not just complying with safety regulations but tackling plant safety challenges head-on in a proactive and progressive manner. The progress that has been made and the successes that have been achieved need to be understood, appreciated, and continued.
