AgSafe is pleased to welcome Kyle Hart as the newest member of their team of safety consultants and advisors. Hart will be working with agricultural producers in the central Okanagan region.
Hart brings a background in safety management that most recently and notably includes his former role as the North Regional Health and Safety Advisor for BC Tree Fruits Cooperative and their sister companies, Cidery Co. and Growers Supply.
“Kyle’s approach to safety is to enable success through collaboration,” says Wendy Bennett, AgSafe BC executive director. “He looks for safety solutions that fit with processes and routines already in place.”
“A producer may sow and harvest the same commodity, or ranch the same livestock, but the daily routines, processes and priorities will vary and bring their own unique health and safety challenges,” says Hart. “This is always top-of-mind when I’m working with an employer or safety manager.”
