The company said it 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.
“Our team has adopted the company’s program with open arms,” said Brad Williams, complex manager at Pendergrass. “We could not accomplish such milestones without the full team’s dedication to safety.”
The Pendergrass facility consists of a 108,000 square-foot fresh processing facility and a 32,750 square-foot hatchery and feed mill. The facility has been owned and operated by Wayne Farms since 1967.
