What can your employer do to protect you in a meatpacking plant?

Meatpacking is a massive industry that is noted for its risks for injury. Meatpacking plant workers operate heavy machinery and are exposed to chemicals. It's a physical job, full of significant labor that never ends. And these are just a few of the risks that you face on the job.

Common occupational illnesses for the meat packing industry

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, meat packing is one of the most dangerous professions in America. Meatpacking exposes workers to cold temperatures, dangerous machines and plenty of sharp objects. While physical injuries such as severed fingers and blunt force trauma immediately come to mind when we think of the dangers associated with the industry, diseases are a big threat to the well-being of workers.
