2008 Farmsafe WA Alliance Farmer Safety Award

Award Presented at the Farmsafe WA Alliance 14th Annual General Meeting

We are pleased to announce that this year's winner of the Farmsafe WA 2008 Farmer Safety Award was Rod Birch from Catalina Farms.

Thanks to sponsorship provided by CSBP, Rod received his trophy, prize money and St John Ambulance first aid kit at the Farmsafe WA Alliance Annual General Meeting held at the Rose and Crown, 30th October 20008.

Rod and his wife, Shelley, crop wheat, canola and lupins at their farm 30km southeast of Coorow. They strive to adopt a safety culture and encourage safe management systems on their farm. As well as implementing a quality assurance program for their entire business (which includes farm safety) they have also demonstrated their commitment to safety by holding the Farmsafe Managing Farm Safety Course, Free on-farm advisory service as well as a grains silo workshop.

As part of his speech, Rod Birch said "it's great to be recognised for doing something we consider ultimately to be common sense and good business practice and I sincerely thank Farmsafe WA and CSBP for their commitment.

Ben Sudlow, CSBP Sales and Marketing Manager, presented the award to Rod and reiterated the importance of safety and that CSBP has a strong safety focus towards its customers and staff.

Michelle Taylor, Executive Officer, said that the Farmsafe WA Alliance committee members were impressed with the calibre of Rod's application and thought his attitude towards safety was excellent.

Congratulations Rod Birch!

Thank you CSBP for your support and sponsorship of the award!
