2023 3rd Quarter Safety Initiative Winner

Southeastern Sod, Inc. - Winner of AgriTrust of Georgia Quarterly Safety Initiative for the 3rd Quarter

Bogart, Georgia - November 28, 2023 - Congratulations to Southeastern Sod, Inc. for being named the 3rd Quarter Winner of the AgriTrust of Georgia Quarterly Safety Initiative. The Quarterly Safety Initiative is a program designed to reward the members of AgriTrust of Georgia for completing safety training throughout the year. For every safety training a member company conducts, they can be entered into a drawing. At the end of each quarter, a winner is selected and awarded $1,000.00. To further incentivize, if the winner did not have a lost-time claim during that quarter, the prize is doubled to $2,000.00

For smaller companies with many moving parts, it can be a challenge delivering safety messages to all employees at once. With a sales office in Atlanta, farms and operations in Americus, and drivers hauling in between, Southeastern Sod did not have a way to conduct in-person safety meetings to present their safety message to their employees. To fix that problem, Southeastern Sod started using the one thing they knew every employee would look at... their paychecks. Each employee receives the company's safety message with their checks/stubs, with the intentions that management will ask follow-up questions to the employees throughout the week.

By delivering safety information (including AgriTrust's Safety Alert and Safety mentality writeups) with their staff paychecks, Southeastern Sod knows that each employee will be on the same page with safety. For their dedication to delivering their safety message, without having a lost-time claim, Southeastern Sod has been awarded a check for $2,000.00 for winning the AgriTrust of Georgia's Quarterly Safety Initiative.

AgriTrust of Georgia is a group self-insured workers' compensation fund that provides workers' compensation insurance coverage for the agricultural industry in the state of Georgia. The Quarterly Safety Initiative is created to encourage all Fund members to participate in an active safety program.
