There is the scientific evidence that industrial meat plants represented a major issue for COVID-19 outbreaks in working place, due to environmental, structural, and management factors. This report illustrates a risk-oriented prevention plan at national/regional/province level, accounting for the official Italian Ministry of Health register of about 6,700 slaughterhouses and meat-cutting plants. Such plan has been promoted by the “Inter-regional technical group on safety and health in the working places”, under the frame of the “Conference of Regions and Autonomous Provinces - Health Commission, Inter-regional co-ordination on Prevention”, with the technical support of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS, the National Health Institute in Italy), the Istituto Nazionale Assicurazione Infortuni sul Lavoro (INAIL, the National Institute for Insurance against Accidents at Work) and of the Department of Prevention of the Local Health Unit (Azienda Sanitaria Locale, ASL) of Bari (Italy). Three synergic working documents have been defined: a) a self-monitoring check-list addressed on voluntary basis to the business operators; b) an audit check-list for the public health operators of the Prevention Departments of the Local Health Unit; c) a questionnaire regarding how COVID-19 outbreaks have been managed.
