At Wheat Growers, we believe there’s nothing more important than safety.
Farming, grain and crop protection product handling, and agriprocessing – these can be hazardous jobs if safety isn’t made the top priority. That’s why, in 2010, Wheat Growers introduced BASE: Behaviors Achieving Safety Excellence. Essentially it’s a plan to enlist the eyes and ears of every Wheat Growers employee to observe how we work and make suggestions on ways to improve safety.
Wheat Growers is dedicated to providing the safest workplace possible for all our employees and member-owners.
