Agricultural Labor & Safety Services

Labor and safety consulting services

Many consultants offer limited or no services related to agricultural labor and safety requirements because the rules are time consuming, detailed in nature and can vary from farm to farm. 

Michigan Farm Bureau's Agricultural Labor and Safety Services (ALSS) program solves this problem.

We meet the needs of individual farms and assists employers in recognizing, understanding and meeting their regulatory obligations in a manner that looks at the business in its entirety.
