2021 Fourth Quarter Safety Initiative Winner
The Jones Center at Ichauway Wins the 2021 4th Quarter Safety Initiative
AgriTrust of Georgia has announced The Jones Center at Ichauway of Newton, Georgia as the winner of the 2021 4th Quarter Safety Initiative.
Ichauway was once the private hunting plantation of Robert W. Woodruff, long-time leader of The Coca-Cola Company and avid hunter. Upon his death in 1985, the Woodruff Foundation converted the plantation into an ecologic research, conservation and education center. In 1989, it officially became the Jones Center at Ichauway in honor of Joseph W. Jones, former senior vice-president of The Coca-Cola Company, Woodruff’s longtime associate and former chairman of the Woodruff Foundation. Since then, the Jones Center has earned a distinguished reputation in the ecosystem research community. Consisting of 29,000 acres in southwestern Georgia, the Jones Center has many unique environmental characteristics that allows them to follow their mission of understanding, demonstrating and promoting excellence in natural resource management and conservation by excelling as a trusted source of science and management information.
Operating a world-class research facility in rural southwest Georgia can present many challenges. One major challenge is how to accomplish all that you want to accomplish safely. With almost 100 employees and numerous visiting professionals, a strong safety program is essential to achieving this. The Jones Center at Ichauway’s goal is to provide a safe work environment for all employees by providing constant training and reminders to employees of workplace safety. Their dedication to safety has helped the Jones Center at Ichauway win the 2021 4th Quarter Safety Initiative and a check for $2,000.00. Congratulations for your success and safety.
