Be Viz-able on farm, it could save a life!
We all know that spring is right around the corner, and with it comes the rush of spring work and getting crops planted. Now is a good time for each of us to review some of the hazards and key safety topics, and to help our family, friends, and neighbors do the same.
Many of our team members at Cargill conduct seasonal pre-spring work meetings with dairy producers. Those meetings (then and now) help us all keep our heads in the game and focused when the days get long and tractor sitting time is plenty.
A key aspect to Cargill’s own safety, and one we encourage on our dairies, is being visible on farms. Part of that is wearing high visibility clothing such as hats, shirts, and our high-viz vests, or anything that can alert a busy farmyard to your presence. These pieces of apparel are much easier to see, especially at night or in bad weather like snow or rain. In some cases, we believe wearing high-viz clothing can very well save a life.
Take the time and simple steps to ensure your own safety. We all can help spread the word on visibility and line of sight safety with family, friends, and other dairy producers.
