Safety and Environment
Bayer supports environmentally compatible practices, including recycling of plastic, paper, metals and electronics, as well as the use of biodegradable materials throughout our offices. 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 implementing rigorous quality management and stewardship of our cotton seed and trait products, including LibertyLink®, GlyTol® and other cotton trait solutions throughout their life cycle.
The safety of our employees and our community is of paramount importance, and we take every precaution possible to ensure an excellent safety record. Staff members at the Lubbock breeding stations and R&D center are specially trained in the areas of field, greenhouse and laboratory safety, as well as in hazardous materials handling. Warehouse and maintenance staff also observe proper procedures when it comes to operating and servicing equipment and performing heavy lifting or physically demanding tasks. For those employees for whom driving is part of the job, we make sure all take part in a driver safety course on a regular basis.
