Brian Muff, a CIRAS project manager who connects Iowa State faculty with Iowa industry, called on James Wright, an associate teaching professor and founding director of the Safety Training Instruction and Research Center in the Iowa State Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering. Wright conducted an occupational safety and health optimization review to identify gaps in Jackson’s safety practices, programs, policies, and procedures. His work resulted in a new safety manual written according to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards and general industry best practices. Some of the manual’s components include a self-inspection safety list, safety handbook, and pocket guides with information on preventing accidents and injuries in the workplace. The materials Wright provided will help Jackson Manufacturing meet current regulatory standards and allow growth in markets not currently accessible.
