(American Meat Institute)

The application deadline for the annual American Meat Institute Foundation Worker Safety Recognition Awards program has been extended. Applications must be submitted by Friday, Feb. 1, 2008.

The program conducted jointly with the National Safety Council, recognizes plants that have achieved a high level of safety performance as part of a continuing effort to reduce occupational injury and illness. Participants in the program have improved safety performance at their plants through the establishment of sound safety and health programs.

As a side benefit, the program also boosts employee morale, drastically reduces expenses associated with injuries and illnesses in the workplace and promotes the industry’s overall image regarding employee safety and health.

Application information was distributed earlier this month, including documentation for plants that participated in 2007. Plants that did not receive this information should contact Kevin Fearn (fearnk@nsc.org) with the National Safety Council for an application.

The 2007 Awards are part of the 2008 Conference on Worker Safety, Health & Human Resources, April 13-15, 2008 at the New Orleans Marriott, New Orleans, Louisiana. Registration can be completed online or by submitting a registration form. Early Bird Registration – prior to March 10, 2008 – is $625 per person ($565 for three or more registrations from the same company). After March 10, 2008, attendees pay the regular conference rate of $675 per person ($615 for three or more registrations from the same company). Non-member rates are $865 per person.
