The Agricultural Safety and Health Council of America (ASHCA) Safety Grants Program has awarded KB Custom Ag Services with a $10,0000 safety grant intended to foster new “champions” of worker safety and health. From an article in the Progressive Forage Harvester Magazine, “Few farming operations invite as many different opportunities for injury or fatality as a silage program”. Although not all of the risk that comes with silage harvesting can be eliminated, KB Custom Ag Services’ philosophy is that by raising awareness through safety trainings, producers and harvesters can dramatically reduce the chance of accidents to themselves, family members, employees and visitors.
KB Custom Ag Services campaign, “HARVEST SAFETY FIRST!” will provide needed and critical education on harvest safety during two training sessions being offered in 2015. Trainers and sponsors will conduct their first session in the Texas panhandle in mid-May. Invitations to both sessions will be extended to other harvesters and producers throughout the nation.
Sponsors of the “HARVEST SAFETY FIRST!” campaign include: Nationwide Insurance, First National Bank of Las Animas, House Trucking Insurance, Great West Insurance, and Mountain Plains Insurance Agency.
