The Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) is pleased to announce the addition of Southern Landscape Group to the roster of participants in the STARS Safe Company Program, sponsored by CNA. STARS (Safety Training Achieves Remarkable Success) is a free safety initiative developed by PLANET to assist green industry companies in their efforts to lower their total costs of risk by reducing hazards and injuries. All green industry professionals are invited to join the STARS program, designed to take workplace safety to the next level. The STARS program currently has over 1,250 members.
Participants are asked to sign the STARS Safe Company Pledge that commits them to join in the mission of moving the entire green industry toward safety excellence through active involvement, sharing experiences, and becoming a mentor for “living safety.” STARS members also commit to developing a strong safety program by using the Safety Program for Green Industry Companies CD as a guideline. They take an active role in promoting safety throughout their companies and investigate and document every job-related injury, incident, or accident. STARS members also are asked to participate in PLANET’s Safety Recognition Awards Program, comply with all OSHA postings and other regulatory requirements, share best practices with fellow STARS members, and encourage other companies to become STARS members.
