Greenhouse Health & Safety Symposium
January 30 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
Working in a greenhouse presents unique challenges that can affect the health, safety and well-being of workers. Common hazards include fatigue, heat, repetitive tasks, workload or lack of awareness and training. If not recognized and managed, these hazards can lead to incidents.
Greenhouse owners juggle competing priorities related to labour shortages, environmental issues and the economy. Many perceive health and safety as expensive and limiting but there is a mounting body of evidence to support the return on investment (ROI) of workplace interventions directed at improving the health and safety of workers.
Don’t leave your workplace vulnerable to these hazards. Together, let’s take the necessary steps to grow the business while cultivating a culture of safety.
