OSHA Standards

State Standards

There are twenty-eight OSHA-approved State Plans, operating state-wide occupational safety and health programs. State Plans are required to have standards and enforcement programs that are at least as effective as OSHA's and may have different or more stringent requirements.

This section highlights OSHA standards, directives (instruction to OSHA staff), and letters of interpretation (official letters of interpretation of the standards) related to the meat packing industry.

Please refer to OSHA's Frequently Cited OSHA Standards page for additional information. For Meat Packing, use NAICS code 311611 (animal slaughtering, except poultry), 311612 (meat processed from carcasses), and/or 311613 (rendering and meat byproduct processing) in the NAICS search box.
