Values Based Safety® Program

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve employee safety, Stratas Foods has initiated a Values Based Safety (VBS) program at each of its facilities.

VBS is an employee-driven program that empowers workers to take an active role in creating a safe workplace environment. Employees are trained to perform observations that recognize safe behavior and provide constructive feedback for improvement. VBS is a voluntary, anonymous program that provides immediate positive feedback without fear of disciplinary action.
