SAFETY

Safety

Central Valley Ag is committed to growing a culture that promotes the health and safety of our employees and patrons. The CVA Safety Team strives to strengthen this culture through continuous Safety Leadership Coaching. We believe that reaching zero workplace incidents is possible through an ALL-IN approach. 

ALL-IN means that employees of CVA, are committed to safety as a core value of who we are. It also means that success in safety requires success in four key areas including Employee knowledge, a Safe Work Environment, Safety Program Implementation, and most importantly a Commitment to doing every job safely every time. 

That commitment to safety extends to our producers and local communities. CVA's safety team is dedicated to providing training opportunities, and aid in the communities we call home. 

CVA Outreach

We all know that the ag industry can be a dangerous profession. With facilities having to get bigger and faster to keep up with higher yields and returns, the safety aspect has to keep up. Bin entrapments and falls from high equipment are a very real situation. Your safety, and the safety of those around you, needs to be a personal responsibility. 

It is our mission to help you bring safety to the forefront by shedding light on the hazards that are present to you and your family each and every day.

Please reach out to your local CVA location and a representative will be happy to assist.
