This report presents an action agenda for preventing workplace violence linked to the regulatory environment in the meat, poultry, and egg products industries. Leaders of business, government, labor, and consumer organizations devised this agenda in January 2001 and submitted it to the secretary of agriculture in February.
The Milbank Memorial Fund convened the group that devised the agenda under a cooperative agreement with the Office of the Under Secretary for Food Safety of the United States Department of Agriculture. The text of the cooperative agreement appears as an appendix to this report. The Fund is an endowed philanthropic foundation, established in 1905, that engages in nonpartisan analysis, study, research, and communication on significant issues in health policy. Most of the Fund’s work is collaborative, involving strategic relationships with decision makers in the public and private sectors.
The action agenda represents consensus among a remarkable group of people, whose names are listed on the following pages. The Fund is particularly grateful to the co-chairs of the group: Kathryn Higgins, former Deputy Secretary of Labor and currently Vice President for Public Policy at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and William N. Martin, Chair of the Appropriations – Human Resources Committee of the North Carolina Senate.
