Common Harvest Challenges

  • Traffic increases / speed of traffic.
  • Long hours / fatigue.
  • Inexperienced and/or reckless drivers.
  • Trucks and wagons in poor repair.
  • Equipment breakdowns.
  • Cell phone distractions.
  • Smoking in and around dump pits.

Long lines and long hours can lead to relaxed safety standards and unsafe attitudes. Establish your rules and regulations so employees and customers are following the same standards.
