King & Prince Reduces Workplace Injuries By 61 Percent

Seafood processing is an inherently high-risk operation with a high rate of workplace injuries, especially for newly hired employees. This case study explores how King & Prince adopted a robust workplace safety onboarding program to dramatically improve workplace safety.

As a part of Nissui, the second largest seafood company in the world, King & Prince Seafood is a leading supplier of value-added seafood for food service operations. The company’s three U.S. plants process, package, and ship fish, shrimp, calamari, crab, surimi, and seafood blends.

The Challenge
Seafood processing is an inherently high-risk operation with a high rate of workplace injuries. Rodney Basaldua, the newly promoted Safety Manager at King and Prince took stock of the company’s safety training programs to see if a new approach was needed.

“I took all the injury reports we had, whether they were OSHA recordable or not, and analyzed them and found that 85% of injuries involved employees with 60 days or less of employment. Of the 33 OSHA injuries that year, the majority were slips, trips or falls by new employees,” says Basaldua.
