At Foremost Farms, we are committed to the safety and well-being of our employees. We believe excellent safety performance not only prevents injuries, but reflects the total human condition at our cooperative – and has a big impact on the bottom line.
Since 2005, Foremost Farms has conducted an aggressive program to emphasize the importance of health and safety at all of our facilities. In the process, we have reduced our safety incident rate from 15.2 in 2005 to 2.4 in 2012. We continue to drive that rate lower.
When one of our facilities reaches a safety milestone – such as the Appleton plant’s 130 employees going eight years without a lost-time incident – we honor that achievement with employee celebrations, luncheons and gifts.
Our focus on safety goes beyond the workplace – to the health and wellness of all employees and their families. Wellness programs emphasize healthy lifestyle choices and reward employees who achieve wellness goals.
