39 Our safety programs create a culture of safety at our operations and position our workplaces as among the safest in the manufacturing sector, with key OSHA metrics better than the manufacturing sector as a whole, and among the best among poultry companies. • We employ a full Corporate Safety and Security Staff, have safety and security managers in each facility and safety teams – consisting of both hourly and management associates – that constantly monitor safety procedures. We continuously review and make improvements to our safety policies and procedures to ensure ongoing improvement. • We provide new associate and ongoing safety training, including training for new procedures and equipment to ensure ongoing safety. • Our sites have and continue to maintain safe line speeds. • We continue to evaluate new technology to reduce risk exposures on our production lines. This includes adjustable work stations where our safety teams, including hourly associates, provide input on ergonomics. As evidence of our program’s success, Perdue was recognized in 2016 by OSHA as a leader in ergonomic improvements. • Job rotation is required and monitored. • Proper recording and reporting of all safety incidents, including “near misses,” is addressed during orientation and team meetings throughout the year.
