Safety and Environment
It’s been said that farmers are the original stewards of the land, and that’s certainly true in DeWitt. Since the beginning, environmental stewardship has been a core value, and that commitment continues today. From recycling programs to the careful stewardship of our LibertyLink® and other soybean trait solutions through the breeding, trait development, field testing and seed production processes, environmental responsibility is a fundamental value that we live out every day.
Bayer values the safety and welfare of all employees, whether they are working in the lab, warehouse, processing plant or in the field. All of our employees are specially trained in safety practices for their unique jobs, including laboratory safety and hazardous materials handling for those of us in the processing plant and research facilities. Maintenance and operations staff also observe proper procedures when it comes to operating and servicing equipment and performing heavy lifting or physically demanding tasks in the course of their work.
