USPOULTRY Releases Lockout/Tagout Video and Other Resources

USPOULTRY has released a new video and poster that demonstrates the proper steps for completing Lockout/Tagout on equipment or machinery. The visuals illustrate basic concepts with few words, this helps member companies train staff even while communication challenges may exist. The material was developed by USPOULTRY with input and review by the Joint Industry Safety and Health Council.

Locking out machinery and equipment prior to servicing or maintenance is an essential element of protecting employees from unexpected energization or motion, the startup of machine or equipment, or release of stored energy. Violations of the Occupational Safety & Health Administration's (OSHA) Lockout/Tagout Standards consistently fall within one of OSHA's top 10 most frequently cited standards across all industries. To avoid accidents and ensure compliance with applicable regulations, it is essential to follow the proper steps of conducting Lockout/Tagout. The poultry industry has made great progress in reducing the number of workplace injuries. Tools such as these will be helpful in ensuring proper employee training which less injuries.

USPOULTRY Develops Video Tutorial to Assist Poultry & Egg Producers; Video Guides Poultry Producers through CERCLA Reporting Requirements

In preparation for the Jan. 22 expiration of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia's stay of the requirement to submit emission reports to the National Response Commission (NRC), USPOULTRY has developed a tutorial video to assist growers with submitting continuous release reports associated with the release of low levels of ammonia into the air generated from the natural breakdown of manure. These reports will be required because the D.C. Court of Appeals, in April of 2017, ruled against EPA's 2008 rational determination that these low-level emissions do not warrant the submission of release reports that are meant to trigger an immediate response by emergency personnel.

The tutorial video, which can be accessed here, references a reporting form and a detailed CERCLA reporting guidance document, also developed by USPOULTRY. These additional documents can be accessed on USPOULTRY's website here and clicking on "USPOULTRY CERCLA Reporting Guidance."
