Yesterday, Western Growers (WG) was awarded the Alliance Award from the Industrial Commission of Arizona (ICA) for all the work WG has done to help members facilitate safety both on their farms and for their employees.

"Western Growers should be an example and benchmark for all industries,” said ICA Chairman Dale Schultz. “Their willingness and drive to establish workplace safety protocols of their own, which happens to be more effective than federal standards, is just one reason they were recognized at our ICA on the Capitol Lawn event."
