Our Commitment to Worker Health & Safety
From industry-leading safety practices and professional development opportunities to competitive benefits and compensation, Smithfield offers a culture and support systems that ensure employee wellbeing at work and at home and we strive to lead our industry in occupational safety and health.
Keeping employees safe is a top priority, so safety is considered in every aspect of the plants and locations that we operate. Whether it’s an office or the production floor, we factor in the different hazards and risks that could cause injury, and we have safety programs to make sure that our employees stay safe.
At Smithfield, employee health includes wellbeing in and out of work. To support our employees’ financial, physical and mental wellbeing at every life stage, we take action to provide a positive work environment, competitive pay and benefits, and unique learning opportunities.
Our comprehensive approach to employee health and safety is more than just a set of rigorous policies. It is a critical element of the culture that makes Smithfield a great place to work. We are focused on ensuring our workers return safe, happy, and healthy to their families at the end of every shift, from the first day of work through retirement. That’s why we require strict adherence to our health and safety policies from every worker and visitor at every Smithfield facility around the world. We also practice “stop work authority,” which empowers all our workers to stop work, , without fear of retribution, if they believe something is unsafe.
