Commitment To Safety

Building a culture of safety.


Creating a culture of safety. 

The safety of our people and our customers is a top priority. At Insight FS, we are always looking to improve our processes as part of our sustainability journey. A safer working environment is paramount to successful business. Safety is something we instill in our employees through training, peer reviews, inspections, and ongoing discussions at each of our locations. We work hard to maintain locations that are well above average within our industry in complying with local, state and federal regulation with compliance. We work with local, state and federal agencies including Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP), Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 

A few highlights of our safety accomplishments, include:
  • Our safety committee meets monthly and is comprised of individuals representing each of our facilities and all departments. This committee is tasked with sharing the latest safety information with their locations and continuing to grow our culture of safety within the organization. Twice a year, members of the team travel to tour and inspect their peers locations and verify that safety protocols are being met. The committee also tours other businesses and industries to compare the safety culture within those organizations and brings ideas back to Insight FS for consideration.
  • In 2021, we completed the ResponsibleAg audits at all our locations for ResponsibleAg certification, a certification we have prioritized since 2018. We continue to keep these certifications active.
  • Our feed mills in Brandon and Stratford, WI passed the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requirements, including innovative dust control measures that keep our employees safe. The mill's dust mitigation is state-of-the-art, bringing new technology to our safety protocols moving forward.
  • In 2019, we started using our Sprayer Applicator Simulator for training new employees and testing our safety in the fields without leaving the classroom. This tool brings simulations to the training room that we never want our applicators to face in the real world, but are worst-case scenarios. This allows for better simulation experiences for new drivers and a means of growing existing expertise with programmable safety concerns that often can happen on the roadways and on the way to the field. The simulator is just one technology we looked at the better address the large machinery that we work with every day, across Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Check out a few highlights below!

One of our retirees, Bruce Barganz (right), was honored in September for serving the last 14 years on the Agricultural Chemical Cleanup Program Council. We appreciate all the years that Bruce worked here at Insight FS and the value he brought to Wisconsin agriculture. Insight FS will continue to have an employee on the ACCP Council to take Bruce's place. 

Our team took a first spin through the road and row crop simulations with our new simulator system (below).
