Ag minds think alike.
You probably already know Ag is the #1 most dangerous industry – raising concern among each of us for our people, as well as earning more attention by OSHA.
But you are focused on your business, and have challenges unique to Ag, like the challenging labor environment and uncontrollable commodity prices, to name a few. We get it.
Several years ago, when a northern Indiana Ag operation had grown to about 50 employees, they ran into a moral responsibility to get all employees home safe, beyond just training employees to meet OSHA’s requirement. After in depth research, Good Day’s Work was created to fill the gap by providing engaging & relevant safety training content, as well as delivering and tracking the training.
The purpose was and is simple, to create a foundation for Ag producers to build their safety cultures on. The result is Ag-focused safety training content on a simple online learning management system – ultimately increasing peace of mind, reducing safety costs and turnover, and reducing risk of future accidents, liability and fines.
Meet the team who strives to build their clients’ (and perhaps your’s) safety cultures.
