Safety

John Deere takes safety seriously - for the sake of our employees, our dealers and customers, and those around them. We developed formal product safety processes in 1938 and continue to move the industry ahead with new product safety technology and training. We're also setting the standard for workplace safety and even encouraging employee health and wellness outside of the workplace.

 

Safety is everybody's responsibility. We're just making it easier for everyone to do their part.

Safety doesn't have to be complicated. Sometimes simple steps can make a big difference. Wear your seat belt, don't operate machinery when kids are nearby, and get to know your operator's manual.
