Through the Alliance, OSHA NCC and NTF will provide NCC's and NTF's members and others with information, guidance and access to training resources that will help them protect the safety and health of employees, including those who speak languages other than English. In particular, the Alliance will address sharing best practices and technical knowledge on safety and health issues, including how to reduce and prevent exposure to ergonomic hazards associated with poultry processing. Goals include:

Training and education
  • Work with OSHA to provide expertise to develop training and education programs for the poultry industry on ergonomics techniques, program structure and applications in the poultry industry, and to provide expertise in communicating such information to employers and employees in the industry.
Outreach and communication
  • Develop and disseminate information and guidance in English, Spanish and other languages through print and electronic media, including electronic assistance tools and links from OSHA's, NCC's and NTF's Web sites.
  • Speak, exhibit or appear at OSHA's, NCC's or NTF's conferences, local meetings or other events such as the annual National Safety Conference for the Poultry Industry, the annual International Poultry Exposition and regular meetings of the Joint Poultry Industry Safety and Health Committee.
Promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health
  • Develop and disseminate case studies illustrating the business value of safety and health and publicize their results.
