"We've never had a serious work-related injury and we're proud of that safety record," says Coburn Farms owner David Coburn.
"The health and well being of my family, workers and animals are very important to me. When everyone is healthy, the whole farm runs better." Coburn operates a 260 acre mixed operation consisting of 25,000 laying hens, a computerized feed mill, in-vessel composting system and a 10-acre apple orchard and cider press. The family business employs his wife, Karen, two of their three adult children and three other full time staff as well as up to six seasonal workers. Part of Coburn's safety ethic stems from his 20 years as a volunteer fire fighter - eight of those as Fire Chief. Safety is a value shared by both of his sons who are also volunteer fire fighters. Tragically, in November 2010, the fire fighter pagers beckoned for aid to put out a fire at Coburn's apple storage facility, which ended in a total loss. From the ashes, Coburn built a new state-of-the-art apple storage and press, which is the site for the eastern launch of CASW this year. Coburn drew on this experience to develop his own farm safety plan. Using the templates and plan structure of CASA's Canada FarmSafe Plan, he has compiled a customized blueprint for safety specific to his operation. A free download of the core Canada FarmSafe Plan is available at www.planfarmsafety.ca . "Many of the things outlined in the Canada FarmSafe Plan are what we were practicing anyway - now we have committed them to paper," explains Coburn. If I have to nag or enforce safety behaviours - then that worker is not a good 'fit' in my business," says Coburn. In addition to his customized Canada FarmSafe Plan, Coburn has developed Operating Procedures Manuals for his poultry operation, the apple press and is in the process of completing one for the feed mill. Coburn markets his operation as a 'closed loop' farm, meaning all stages of production and output are recycled and reused rather than discarded. As part of these sustainable practices he grows and mills the feed for the chickens, then composts all waste products from the chickens and apple pressing. The compost is then spread on the orchards, replenishing to the earth the nutrients that were withdrawn. "I don't see the way I farm as being exceptional," says Coburn.
