NYSAS FARM SAFETY AWARD RECIPIENT
On January 6, 2022, the New York State Agricultural Society presented HVH with the NYSAS Farm Safety Award for outstanding safety and health activities! The focal points of the farm's consideration for this award were:
completing a comprehensive safety training schedule
paying consistent attention to workplace hazards and remediation
implementing a clear Airborne Infectious Disease plan
and meeting & exceeding the many other compliance standards in agriculture
The farm is incredibly proud to be recognized for fostering a culture of safety and awareness in what is typically a dangerous industry. We won't be resting on our laurels, however. We'll spend 2022 maintaining this safety culture, and broadening our safety program to include facets like: a team-based incentive program, a more robust Hazard Communication program, and the rollout of a specialized safety manual. Thank you to the entire HVH team for bringing this award home with their commitment to safety on the farm!
