1st Quarterly Safety Initiative Winner Announced!
The Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center in Covington has been chosen as the First Quarter Winner of the AgriTrust of Georgia Quarterly Safety Initiative. The Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center is an educational camp facility designed with the purpose of providing the youth of Georgia with a site for leadership and career development. Founded in 1937 as an FFA Camp for rural youth, it has evolved into a premier camp facility and conference center for the FFA and FCCLA Organizations, as well as many other youth and adult organizations. The Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center feels that communication and caring are the two main factors of workplace safety. They try to have a family culture where employees have open lines of communication, they care about their work, and they know others care about them personally. AgriTrust of Georgia has presented the Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center with a check for $2,000.00 for holding their safety meeting, “Severe Weather,” during the first quarter of 2017. The Center plans on using the money to fund their “safety shoe” program, where they pay for safety shoes for every employee. 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.
