Harvest Land Cooperative is one of 227 employers who were recognized at the Governor's Safety Awards luncheon at the Minneapolis Convention Center on May 16.

Aaron Guggisberg, Safety Director at Harvest Land Cooperative stated, "We are always looking for ways to improve the working environment at Harvest Land. The best way to improve the environment is to safely eliminate any hazards that may exist. Our employees are always on the lookout for anything which may cause harm to themselves, other employees and our patrons."

In a business where large machinery is constantly moving and unexpected tasks are always coming up Guggisberg ensures, "Safety is always step one on the path to completing everyday tasks, if we can't do a job safely, then the job does not get done. We cannot cut safety out of the plan just to accomplish the task."
