Safety and Environment
Crop Science, a division of Bayer supports environmentally compatible practices, including recycling of plastic, paper, metals and electronics, as well as the use of biodegradable materials throughout our offices and manufacturing facilities. Sustainable methods are applied to packaging and shipping product whenever possible, so that we maximize performance and efficiency while minimizing our environmental footprint.
From a product stewardship perspective, we are committed to designing equipment that minimizes worker exposure by utilizing closed delivery systems. Additionally, site engineering personnel are actively involved in critical projects to reduce dust emission from treated seeds and help to protect non-target species such as honeybees and other beneficial insects on the farm.
The safety of our employees is of paramount importance, and we take every precaution possible to ensure an excellent safety record. The implementation of a rigorous safety training program combined with employee incentives has resulted in remarkable success. Because we design and build equipment that our customers operate, our safety culture goes beyond the confines of Shakopee. Delivering equipment that is safe to operate on and off the farm is a key indicator of the success of our safety efforts.
