Is it really advantageous for workers to shower every time they enter poultry houses? Or do you think that if workers change their shoes and clothes and wash their hands, it is enough?
It depends on whether they work simultaneously (on the same day) on a pig/ cattle farm. (or) they work in multiple farms (or) they own poultry themselves. In these cases a one time shower is necessary.
Showering takes time to be done (and adapted premises, therefore emore expensive). I would suggest that showering should take place in farms which have stronger needs for biosecurity, and fewer visitors. Therefore selection farms, multiplication farms, hatcheries and perhaps final production sites (meat or layer production) when their size is very important.
I think working in other farms like swine is incompatible with working in poultry farms. The risk of spread of Salmonella, for example, is high.
