Abstract The booklet discusses the good practices for employees in rendering plants processing waste animal material. The most common safety problems for renderers are steam burns, cuts, and falls.

Other topics discussed include working in confined spaces, protection from heat, heat control in plants, working with chemicals, servicing scrubbers, handling chemicals, exposure to chlorine, using disinfectants, and first aid.
