We understand how to create safer, more profitable farms.
Farmers protect their livelihood and deliver a safer product when they manage risk, boost productivity and monitor their employees, animal welfare, land and equipment. We have 25+ years of experience serving Washington farmers and are proud to partner with the Washington Farm Bureau in offering an exclusive 10% discount to members on video surveillance (equipment and installation).
Video surveillance is a business tool that not only monitors your operation, but can be used for training and provides crucial video documentation if workers compensation claims are made. It is a vital part of the Retro Safety Program offered by the Washington Farm Bureau.
Kevin DeGroot, a Washington dairy farmer, hasn’t had a labor and industries (L&I) claim in years—and that his CameraScan video surveillance system directly contributes to that by providing recorded evidence of operations to defend his dairy from false claims (like slip-and-fall incidents) that can be a financial catastrophe for small farms and businesses.

Ethical Employee Monitoring That Keeps People Safe.
Employee monitoring can sometimes be a hot button—but DeGroot says he uses surveillance to know about positive activities and reinforces that among his employees (as well as to curb issues).
“At first I thought installing cameras was going to be a bit of a fight—that they would think I didn’t trust them,” he says. “It’s not that I don’t trust them—I want to know they’re safe and that everything is happening according to protocol so my business is secure. Because, if I still have a job, then they still have a job! Now they love the cameras being on!”

More from Our Agriculture Customers
Another customer, Douglas Fruit in Pasco, is committed to food safety. Its warehouse and all the orchards comply with rigorous standards of safe, quality foods (SQF).
“The CameraScan camera coverage is seamless and one of the best investments we’ve made. Several members
of the management team (including myself) use the remote viewing feature – its been instrumental in catching employees who have been causing damage to the facilities. The employees and management are comforted by the presence of the video surveillance cameras, especially when there are suspicions and accusations made by employees against one another. Employees now ask management to review footage to prove/disprove innocence. Morale is higher than before.”
– Jim Ranson, Maintenance Manager at Douglas Fruit, Pasco, WA
