Leading Ag Health & Safety

Safety for our food, farmers and families.

In agriculture, energy, food and transportation we’re making industries safer through our national ag programs, local investments and our internal commitment to a safety-first culture. Click here for examples of recent safety initiatives.
  • Ag Health & Safety

    We are committed to making the world of agriculture safer, especially for future generations. CHS, along with the CHS Foundation have made a significant investment to support agricultural safety initiatives that focus on producers, their families and their employees.  

    In 2016, more than $535,000 was awarded to safety initiatives by CHS and the CHS Foundation. Click here to learn more. 

    Local safety grants are now being accepted through the new CHS Seeds for Stewardship local matching grants program.  Through this program, cooperatives can apply to receive up $5,000 in matching funds to show support of the organizations making a difference in their hometown communities.  Click here to learn more.

  • Employee Safety

    At CHS, we put safety first, above business performance. We’ve established comprehensive safety plans for all our businesses. We communicate with all CHS employees in the workplace and even in their homes with on-going training and safety reminders. We incorporate these far-reaching safety goals into incentive pay for leaders throughout the company. Recently, we developed a multi-faceted program, The Safety Zone, that has been specifically designed to engage our employees and their families with the CHS safety commitment.

    CHS and each of its subsidiaries are committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace by adhering to established safety regulations. Each CHS business unit must develop and implement a safety program that satisfied regulatory requirements and ensures compliance. Employees must strive to eliminate unsafe work practices or conditions by immediately notifying their manager of any problems or unsafe conditions in the workplace.

  • Food Safety

    At CHS, our commitment to food safety goes further than our doors. Much further. As a leading agriculture and food company, we strive to process and provide food and food ingredients that are safe and of the highest quality. No matter where or when they’re consumed across the globe.

    This commitment includes a comprehensive approach that addresses biological, chemical and physical hazards. Whenever handling food products, processing ingredients, transporting around the globe, or food service within our retail locations, we bring unparalleled safety commitments and initiatives to the table. 

    Our definition of food safety is simple. We work to protect both people and animals from illness or injury from handling or consuming our food products all along our vast supply chain. 

    Being an integral part of the world’s food supply means our work is never done. We’ve made significant investments in our local communities and in our processing facilities. We’re not only committed to ensuring the food we process and deliver is safe. We work to make certain this commitment spans cultures and geographies to bring our integrity and safety to the world.
