May 2020 President Letter

Dear Members and Students

Our lives still continue to be impacted by the Coronavirus.  Daily routines, both professionally and personally, are still affected, and we find ourselves searching for what is “normal” in our lives today. Additionally, growing concerns have become evident within our meat and poultry processes where guidance has been given to help protect employees from the virus.  Both OSHA and the CDC have provided direction to help employers safeguard their employees against the virus. Refer to the ASSP website and click on “Covid-19” to further read up on updated information about the virus as well as the steps to take on keeping employees safe within the meat and poultry industries.  The Greater Calumet Chapter Board members continue to keep each of you and your families in our thoughts as you continue to move forward and persevere through this difficult time.
