The poultry industry is constantly affected by change, and this year has been no exception. However, one thing is certain – employee safety remains a top priority. Each year, poultry and egg industry safety professionals convene at the National Safety Conference for the Poultry Industry to discuss best practices to ensure the continuous safety of their employees. This year’s Conference is scheduled for 10 to 12 August at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa in Destin, Florida. The conference is sponsored by the Georgia Tech Research Institute/ATRP and the US Poultry & Egg Association (US Poultry).

As US Poultry is currently planning to move forward with the seminar, the health and safety of everyone who attends is a top priority. Guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local governments regarding COVID-19 will be followed, and regular updates will be provided to all stakeholders if the situation warrants. For instance, in addition to the hotel sanitation practices outlined by Hilton, seating will be configured to allow for social distancing if necessary.

“US Poultry’s National Safety Conference will offer a variety of presentations, focused on trending industry topics and updates on government safety policies for poultry industry personnel,” said Frank Cruice, senior director of safety and security for Perdue Farms, and programme committee chairman. “This is an incredible opportunity for furthering education and connecting with your peers. You will not want to miss it.”

A variety of topics will be covered, including Safety Best Practices During a Pandemic…Moving Forward; Automation/Ergonomic Best Practices; Improving Safety During Sanitation; Importance of Leading Indicators to Prevent Injuries; Incident Investigation Do’s and Don’ts; OSHA Standards Updates; and more. There will also be an opportunity to gain valuable advice from attorneys in the Ask a Lawyer session. As well, a series of roundtable discussions will allow attendees to convene in smaller groups to discuss and learn from each other about best practices and challenges.
