Woony Wheat Growers wins Governor’s Safety Awards

JASON WHITE, manager of the SD Wheat Growers Woonsocket location, accepts the award.

Eight Wheat Growers locations, including the Woonsocket location, have been honored with the Meritorious Achievement award at the South Dakota Safety & Health Conference Governor’s Safety Awards luncheon in Sioux Falls. Meritorious Achievement awards are given for superior safety performance.
The Wheat Growers locations that received awards were: Carpenter, Huron Agronomy and Grain, Kennebec, Miller, West Terminal – Aberdeen, Willow Lake, Woonsocket and Yale.
Since 1993, the annual Governor’s Safety Awards has recognized employers with superior safety records. Employers submit workplace injury data that is compared with state and national data and the entrant’s past performance. Ongoing safety programs and activities are also considered.
“It is especially fitting that Wheat Growers locations receive the Governor’s Safety Award as we head into harvest,” Bill Spreeman, Wheat Growers Vice President, Safety, Environmental and Regulatory Affairs, said. “One of Wheat Growers’ core values is a commitment to a positive safety culture. These eight locations are fine examples of how we take that core value to heart every day.”
Wheat Growers is a grain and agronomy cooperative in the heart of South and North Dakota. Owned by the members it serves, Wheat Growers exists to provide, with integrity, customers with reliable markets, services and quality products through a safety-oriented, profitable and innovative organization.
