Six locations awarded high levels of recognition for workplace safety
ROSE HILL, N.C. – August 14, 2019: The Joint Industry Safety and Health Council has awarded
six House of Raeford Farms locations with safety awards for outstanding performance through
the implementation of innovative and effective employee safety and health programs.
Two House of Raeford processing plants—Arcadia, LA and Rose Hill, NC – were each recognized
for their commitment to safety with Awards of Distinction during the 2019 National Safety
Conference for the Poultry Industry in Destin, FL.
Awards of Distinction are the highest level of recognition a company can receive from the Joint
Industry Safety and Health Council. Injury statistics over three years and an evaluation of
written applications make up the criteria for the awards.
In addition, four House of Raeford facilities received Awards of Honor – West Columbia, SC
processing plant; Monetta, SC feed mill; Monetta, SC hatchery; and the Lavonia, GA hatchery.
“At House of Raeford, workplace safety is a top priority and we’re dedicated at every level to
ensuring a culture of safety throughout our company’s footprint,” said Bob Johnson, CEO and
Owner of House of Raeford. “We’re honored to have six of our locations recognized for their
commitment to safety and grateful for employees who go above and beyond to ensure
everyone can enjoy a safe, healthy and accident-free working environment.”
Safety managers at each company location oversee daily, weekly and monthly inspections for
potential workplace safety violations. In addition, they direct regular training and awareness
exercises to help protect both people and property.
The Joint Industry Safety and Health Council comprises members from the U.S. Poultry & Egg
Association, National Chicken Council, and National Turkey Federation.
