Westfort pig slaughterhouse has installed video surveillance to monitor the behaviour of their employees towards the animals. Video surveillance in slaughterhouses has shown to have an immediate positive impact on the way employees handle the animals. The employees are more calm and careful and those having a bad day, think twice before letting it out on an innocent animal.
Video surveillance has also been shown to be a good way of identifying stress points in the design of the runways, pens, stunning and killing area. We are now working on getting other slaughterhouses to install videosurveillance cameras, and are having some success so far! Keep checking our Good News for updates.
