Any Way You Slice It, Safety Comes First

Burgers’ Smokehouse's WorkSAFE philosophy also extends to business investments. In 2017, Burgers’ was among MEM’s first ever safety grants to Missouri businesses. The MEM Safety Grant program provides one-to-one matching grants for the purchase of approved products and equipment that can reduce or eliminate injuries and illness. Their safety grant went to purchase a meat slicer that significantly reduced their employees' risk of laceration injuries when slicing hams and meats. It has also increased efficiency by having a large slicing capacity of up to 4,400 lbs/hour.

Burgers' now has five meat slicers of this type and has not experienced a claim since their implementation. Watch Philip Burger talk about how the safety grant makes a difference in this video.


Every company has the opportunity to become a success story like Burgers' Smokehouse.
