OSHA Establishes Alliance with Poultry Associations


According to a release on September 4th the U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has established an alliance with the major associations representing the poultry industry.  The objective will be to share information and training resources to extend the improvements in worker safety achieved over the past 25 years. Participants in the signing ceremony included Laren Sweatt, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA, Mike Brown, president of the National Chicken Council, Joel Brandenberger, president of the National Turkey Federation and Matt Spencer, Director of HR and Safety Programs for USPOULTRY.


The U.S. poultry industry has implemented improvements in ergonomics, worker training and has applied advances in processing equipment to achieve lower rates of injury and accidents. Since 1994 recordable injuries have declined by 83 percent although there is a collective commitment to improve overall health and safety for all employees.
