Marshalltown, IA, Pork Production Facility

Recognizing Safety Improvement

The Marshalltown pork facility was recognized in 2018 with the Top Hog Most Improved Safety Performance Award, a JBS USA Pork recognition awarded annually to the facility most able to reduce its overall safety statistics in five major categories, including recordable rate, lost time rate, severity rate, DART rate and costs.

Each category is judged by the greatest percent of reduction and assigned a point value for highest to lowest reduction. “When the math was completed, we were the most improved. We are honored to get the trophy again for the fourth time in nine years of the award existence,” said Bradley Comstock, JBS USA Marshalltown Safety Manager.
