US - The US Poultry & Egg Association's Poultry & Egg Institute announces its new web site, <em> http://www.poultryegginstitute.org</em>

The web site will be used to promote and house a growing collection of training and education programs. Accessing the site will provide a schedule and registration information on seminars, along with current and past issues of People Matters, the institute’s electronic newsletter covering human resources, safety and risk management concerns in the poultry and egg industry.

The site includes a variety of resources that will serve as a library to help address a myriad of industry issues. It outlines USPOULTRY's student outreach programs, such as the College Student Career Program and the US Poultry & Egg Harold E. Ford Foundation. And the site is a convenient way to order hands-on training programs, such as two recently released training DVDs: Preventing Rollover Truck Accidents and Storm Water Pollution Prevention.

"Thanks to USPOULTRY for the fantastic training DVD on poultry industry CMV rollover hazards and safeguards," said Mike Klun, environmental, health and safety manager for Cargill Inc., Wichita, Kansas.

"We plan on showing the DVD training material to all our drivers and incorporating it into our annual training curriculum. Once we heard about the training material, it was very easy for us to go to the Poultry & Egg Institute web site and order copies for all our locations," he added.

"Our new website, specifically dedicated to the Poultry & Egg Institute, is one more effort to better serve our members and the industry," explained Paul Pressley, vice president of the institute.

"It will make access to our education and training programs fast and easy," he said.

To make suggestions or comments on the web site, or to recommend new issues for the institute to address, contact Mr Pressley at ppressley@poultryegg.org.
