HOW WE DO IT

The Safety Culture Act

Cultivating a Culture of Safety on Montana's Farms and Ranches

The Safety Culture Act enacted by the 1993 Montana State Legislature encourages workers and employers to create and implement a philosophy of workplace safety. It is the intent of the act to raise workplace safety to a preeminent position in the minds of all Montana's workers and employers.Risk is an inherent part of all agricultural operations. However, taking risks with the safety and health of employees is not worth the exposure to potential high level losses.  Money spent on establishing and maintaining a farm/ranch safety program has a high rate of return in preventing indirect costs to the operation.  Making safety a priority and actively promoting safety to your employees can change your employee's behavior toward safety and reduce the number of workplace accidents.
