Is your farm family ag safe?

It’s Canadian Ag Safety Week, and the Canadian Agriculture Safety Association has once again teamed up with the Canadian Federation of Agriculture for the third year of its three-year campaign helping families farm safe.

Each of the three years focused on a different generation of the family farm. This year, the focus is on farm safety as it relates to seniors.

“Canadian Ag Safety Week really asks farm families to have conversations about safety,” says Marcel Hacault, CASA’s executive director. “Everyone has a role on the farm, the AgSafe family is a team, and everyone can contribute in a safe and productive way.”

Canadian Agricultural Safety Week in 2018 is focused on supporting senior farmers through resources, safety advice articles, infographics, and more.

On CASA’s website, you’ll find resources on conducting a job safety analysis, proper crop protection safety, a stop-and-ask video, and much more.

During the week, all farmers are encouraged to share how they are being an ag safe family using the hashtag #AgSafeFamily, across social media platforms.
