Through the Alliance, OSHA, NCC and NTF will provide the organizations' 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 focus on machinery hazards and provide potential solutions to reduce injuries (e.g., amputations). The Alliance's goals include:

Training and education
  • Work with OSHA to provide expertise to develop training and education programs for the poultry industry on equipment safety and to provide expertise in communicating such information in English, as well as other languages to employers and employees in the industry.
Outreach and communication
  • Work with OSHA to provide expertise in developing information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards, and to provide expertise in developing ways of communicating such information (e.g., print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools and OSHA's and the NCC's and NTF's Web sites) to employers and employees in the industry.
  • Work with other Alliance participants on specific issues and projects on equipment safety that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program.
Promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health
  • Convene or participate in forums, round table discussions or stakeholder meetings on equipment safety issues to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace.
