SGS Galson attended the National Safety Conference for the Poultry Industry for the first time, August 15-17 in Destin, FL. The booth had a “poultry puzzle” theme stating that processing plants, hatcheries, feed mills and live operations will obtain all the pieces to their environmental, health and safety (EHS) puzzle using SGS Galson’s one-stop shop of analytical services including renown programs such as FreePumpLoan™ and FreeSamplingBadges™, as well as the Galson Hygiene Rental program providing quality testing equipment, shipped and ready to go at very reasonable prices for all environmental, health and safety testing needs.
According to the National Chicken Council, “The poultry industry is proud of the advancements in worker safety that have been made over the last 30+ years and the ongoing efforts for continued improvement. The incidence of occupational injuries and illnesses within the poultry sector’s slaughter and processing workforce has fallen by 81 percent in the last 20 years and continues to decline according to the 2014 Injury and Illness Report released by the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).”
SGS Galson is gratified to contribute to the health and safety of poultry workers.
