Two Case Farms facilities in Goldsboro are recognized for their safety and health measures. The Joint Industry Safety and Health Council have announced the Case Farms Goldsboro processing plant and Goldsboro hatchery were among the company’s facilities to receive the Award of Honor for their outstanding and consistent implementation of employee safety and health programs.
The Award of Honor criteria required these facilities to maintain their key Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safety metrics – Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR), Days Away, Restricted or Transferred (DART), and Lost Work-Day Incident Rate (LWDIR) – at levels between 75 and 50 percent less than Bureau of Labor Statistic results for three consecutive years. Award consideration was also based on an evaluation of written applications by an independent panel of judges.
The Joint Industry Safety and Health Council consists of members from the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, National Chicken Council and National Turkey Federation. Collectively, the three organizations represent companies that produce 95% of the nation’s poultry products and directly employ more than 350,000 workers.
