If OSHA were to inspect your Agriculture/Farm operation at this moment how many safety and compliance issues will they discover? How much would the FINE$ total? Although the percentage of the Agriculture/Farming workforce is small, the amount of accidents certainly isn’t; every year thousands of Agriculture workers are injured, and hundreds are killed! Agriculture is one of the most dangerous industries in the nation, so don’t wait to change your attitude towards safety measures until a serious injury or accident occurs.
Most fatal accidents and injuries are from tractors, unprotected machinery or miss-operated equipment. All agriculture operations are supposed to have a safety and compliance program in place for the protection of employees and visitors. It is the law to implement safety procedures. In the long run it reduces operating costs by reducing fines, insurance premiums and a reduced numbers of accidents that will decrease lost working days that come with injury. For every dollar invested in a safety program the result amounts to a $4.00 return on your investment. By emphasizing safety procedures you will boost staff productivity, protect your reputation and shield yourself and your operation from legal action.
