RealAg LIVE! with Robert Gobeil on Farm Safety Week


Farm safety — whether it’s a grain farm, a livestock operation, a combination of the two, or any other type of ag-related operation — deserves the time to develop a safety plan.

Robert Gobeil, ag health and safety expert with CASA, joins guest host Lyndsey Smith for today’s RealAg LIVE!

RealAg LIVE! streams every weekday at 3 pm E on Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter!


  • Lyndsey recites a limerick
  • What’s Ag Safety Week all about?
  • This year’s theme is “Lead an ag safe Canada”
  • Throughout the pandemic, CASA has created some resources for the ag sectoe
  • “How do we stay safe around cattle, equipment, and now each other?”
  • Injury prevention is always a priority for CASA
  • New “inflow” graphics. If a flow chart and an infographic had a baby…
  • How much time should farms invest in developing their own safety plan?
  • We all want to go home the same way we arrived
  • Falling, grain entrapment, moving or riding on equipment, being around livestock. Each operation is unique and will require different safety measures.
  • Where do you start?
  • Keeping kids safe on the farm, has there been an increase in inquiries, especially with kids being home due to the pandemic?
  • Ok, now what about the oldest generation on the farm? It’s a tough conversation, but it has to be had.
  • If an older family member still wants to contribute, what tasks should they do?
  • Benefit during the pandemic? CASA has noticed far more attention put on safety
  • Would you let a kid run amok around a construction site? Probably not.
  • Safety culture, are we where we should be? We’re working towards higher standards of safety in ag
  • How important is it for parents or the older generation to follow the rules and not just say the rules?
  • Kids are curious and if they get the right message, they can positively enforce that message for the previous generation too
  • Hopefully it doesn’t take a close call, or worse, for people to be more safe around the farm
