Position: Senior Loss Control Consultant
Background: Sergio Loya is a 15-year veteran of Western Growers and dedicated safety expert. He works out of WG’s El Centro office, serving more than 40 clients in the Imperial Valley, San Diego, Los Angeles, Oxnard, Coachella, Indio, and all of Arizona, providing customized worksite bilingual training and consultative services that keep workers accident-free and insurance costs low.
Sergio loves to talk about safety and his passion is obvious. “Farmers seem to know everything about safety, but I provide a good reminder for them about the things they need to do to keep things safe.” His main goal is to get across one simple point: “Safety is important.”
Sergio is as dedicated a family man as he is an employee. He has three kids, two boys and a girl, who are all involved in sports. When he’s not on the road, he and his wife spend much of their free time going to practices and games and he’s even a coach. Sergio acknowledges that being on the road makes it difficult to be at every practice, but his fellow employees and clients make it easier to cope. “I want to be there for the kids. I want them to remember that. But maybe that’s why I’m still here after all these years, because of people like that.”
