Four major OSHA regulatory changes are going to significantly impact poultry processors:
- A Regional Emphasis Program with sweeping new inspection guidelines around ergonomics, PPE, LOTO, chemical/bio hazards, noise, and sanitation
- Further audit scrutiny that could lead to “wall-to-wall” inspections
- New Joint Employer ruling makes plants as responsible for their temporary workers’ safety as they are for their full-time employees
- Penalties potentially increasing by up to 82%
These changes mean poultry processors must take proactive measures to minimize further OSHA scrutiny. Learn what these changes mean for your organization and how leading poultry processors are establishing the right workplace safety measures to prevent costly fines.
- Due in part to OSHA’s Special Emphasis Program, OSHA inspections at poultry facilities tend to be more comprehensive, and facilities will likely be required to show recordkeeping and medical records
- It is the facility’s burden to show that they have safety procedures in place
- OSHA gives no advance notice, and you cannot ask them to come back at a different time
- Establishing a proactive safety culture is key to paving the path to compliance and preventing OSHA violations
