During its annual Conference on Worker Safety in Kansas City the American Meat Institute Foundation granted 142 meat and poultry plants the Safety Recognition Awards.

Safety Recognition Award Winners 2010

Award of Honor: 46 plants

Award of Merit: 48 plants

Award of Commendation: 32 plants

Certificate of Recognition: 16 plants



The primary program goals are to motivate participants to improve their safety performance through the establishment of sound safety and health programs at the plant level and to recognise those plants that have achieved a high level of safety performance as part of the continuing effort to reduce occupational injury and illness.

In addition, the program can boost employee morale, reduce expenses associated with injuries and illness in the workplace and enhance the meat and poultry industry’s overall image regarding employee safety and health.

The various levels of awards that may be earned are based on an evaluation of each eligible plant’s actual safety performance as well as its implementation of various key components of an effective safety and health program as measured by the safety program questionnaire.
