Fatality rates in agriculture, fishing, and forestry are nearly 10 times that of other industries, averaging more than 25 deaths per 100,000 workers each year. We have found that when it comes to the most dangerous industries, “the workers can be the workplace experts”.
Our Agricultural/Logging division collaborates with businesses and workers to improve health and safety in these extremely hazardous fields. We conduct on-site safety survey reviews to identify potential hazards around the farms/agriculture sites, shops, and with tractors, implements and various machinery. We also evaluate use of personal protective equipment.
Farming is one of the few industries in which families, who often work and live on the premises, are also at risk for fatal and non-fatal injuries. Accidents are costly. An estimated cost for agriculture-related accidents can range from $2,000.00 for a minor injury to $90,000.00 for a disabling injury. Just as an irrigation system or forest thinning project increases crop production, a Safety and Health program is an effective way to manage risk and increase productivity.
Cutting the risk of workplace injuries and fatalities benefits your business by reducing costs. And what is most important: it saves lives and prevents permanent disabilities.
All of Elite Safety Companies, Inc. safety surveys and programs are uniquely designed for each individual site. All of our programs meet or will exceed city, county, state and/or federal standards.
