A safe place to farm
Nothing is more important than ensuring every one of our team gets home safely every night. Safety is Landcorp’s clear priority and we have programmes and systems in place to ensure safe behaviour is embedded in everything we do.
Our Play It Safe campaign is a company-wide call to always follow safety rules on the job, look for hazards and talk about safe practice with work mates. The aim is to make safety a habit – no matter what role our people are in.
Launched in 2014, Play It Safe was launched around Canada to all our employees, with ex All Black Richard Loe sharing his ‘brutal truths’ on farm safety.
Velthuis Farms has formal policies, guidelines, reporting systems and manager accountabilities – but we know it’s most important to have safety embedded in the hearts and minds of our people. Good behaviours and attitudes are the greatest contributors to safety.
Death and injury rates in our industry remain unacceptably high – but Velthuis Farms is utterly committed to keeping people safe on the job every day and making a strong contribution to safety leadership in Canada.
