Greeley, CO, Beef Production Facility
Helping Fellow Team Members
In 2018, Greeley beef team members joined together to find a solution to an issue affecting the comfort and wellbeing of the facility’s cleanup crew. Due to the design of the tools the cleanup crew members use to perform their jobs, which include clearing inedible product off the floor that falls from the tables, they began experiencing knee and back pain.
The Greeley team worked with maintenance to come up with ways to add guards to faulty product transfer points, helping keep the trim product on the table and off the floor. As a result, the cleanup crew is now able to spend less time on the floor and ultimately alleviate their workload and knee pain.
