Farmside Landscape & Design announced today that it was recently awarded Silver Safety Achievement Award from the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP).
The award, part of NALP’s annual Safety Recognition Awards Program honors those companies with thorough, high-performing safety programs that create and maintain safe work environments in the lawn and landscape industry. It is designed to reward lawn and landscape companies that consistently demonstrate their commitment to safety.
Farmside Landscape was evaluated on number of accidents, number of days that employees were away from work, and number of employee injuries and illnesses. In addition, a checklist was used to rate the company’s complete safety program.
“We are proud of our staff who take safety seriously. Promoting safe work environments show our employees and clients that we care.” stated Lisa Kuperus, co-owner, “Farmside consistently educates our team to keep safety top of mind. One example our the weekly safety talks led by team safety leader, JT Vallay, when we share and discuss the past week’s experiences and then discuss a specific safety topic, like distracted driving or mower safety. We will continue to promote safe work habits by our employees on a daily basis because we recognize the importance of safety in the workplace.”
