Safety & MSDS
Environment, Health & Safety
Viterra's fundamental values and beliefs respecting environment, health and safety are an integral part of our business designs, procedures and work practices. Committed to protecting our employees, customers, business participants and their communities, Viterra promotes programs and procedures - in compliance with regulations and applicable laws - with an aim to preventing injuries, guarding against negative health effects and protecting the environment.
Safety's central role at Viterra is evident through our innovative programs and industry leading best practices, such as our management of fertlizers and other agricultural products.
An example of this is our collaboration with the Canadian Fertilizer Institute (CFI) on its Anhydrous Ammonia Code of Practice for Storage, Handing and Distribution. More Viterra facilities have completed the CFI National Code of Practice Audit than any other company in Canada.

Safety leadership - We are industry leaders in providing customer training on the safe handling and on-farm application of NH3. This training is a priority and is key to the safe use of this valuable, cost-effective product.
