Wayne Farms’ Enterprise Facility Celebrates 5 Million Hour Safety Milestone

Share Article

Wayne Farms LLC’s Enterprise facility recently celebrated an industry milestone in safety and production by operating 5 million man-hours without a lost-time accident.

In addition to traditional safety practices, Wayne Farms has implemented a behavior-based safety initiative called WorkSAFE, which focuses on helping employees identify unsafe behaviors and remain conscious of their environment and potentially dangerous situations.

“We recognize the difficulty of accomplishing 5 million hours without a lost-time case and we commend our Enterprise team on their effort and discipline in the area of safety management, says Tammy Hanna, Safety and Compliance Manager for the Wayne Farms’ Enterprise facility.

The Enterprise team held a contest for employees to create a safety slogan. The winner was Nathan Henderson and his creative slogan was, “Safety comes in cans. I can, you can, we can!” All employees enjoyed a BBQ lunch, raffle prizes, a t-shirt displaying the new safety slogan and signed a banner demonstrating their dedication to Wayne Farms’ WorkSAFE program.

The Enterprise facility consists of a 120,000 square-foot fresh processing facility, a feed mill and a hatchery. The facility has been owned and operated by Wayne Farms since 1994.
