Case Farms, a fully-integrated poultry farming and processing group, recently achieved a major safety milestone after working one million hours without experiencing an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable lost time accident at its Goldsboro processing facility. This marks an exciting milestone in the company’s history and demonstrates the safe environment of the company.
“One million hours without a lost time incident is a meaningful milestone for our company, as it showcases that the team has embraced our culture of operational excellence,” said Tim Singleton, Vice President of the Goldsboro Division. “Congratulations to the Goldsboro facility – it’s truly a model when it comes to safety.”
In its mission to keep worker safety as the highest priority, Case Farms has incorporated several initiatives and corporate changes that encourage employee participation and input. The company-wide worker safety program is comprised of core elements that are essential to achieving and maintaining a strong safety and health program. By implementing these elements, including hazard prevention programs, daily work-site analysis, safety awareness training and strong management-employee relationships, Case Farms’ facilities are able to continue keeping worker safety top-of-mind.
“Safety is not one person’s job. It’s everyone in the company looking out for each other, and it is paramount for the business,” said Rick Barton, Case Farms Director of Safety. “The Goldsboro team is leading by example and has shown us that it is possible to be consistent in our quest to make things safer.”
