Canadian Agricultural Safety Week 2014

Posted February 27, 2014

Canadian Agricultural Safety Week 2014 is held March 9-15, 2014.

The impact of a farm injury can be devastating both emotionally and economically to producers and their families. Yet most injuries are predictable, and thus preventable, if you know what to look for and how to control the hazards on your farm.

Visit www.agsafetyweek.ca for information and tools to help you in your beef operation.

A series of producer tools are available for free to download. Check out the Farm Talk Series. These reference tools include advice on building your farm safety team, talking to your kids about farm safety, orienting new, young or returning farm workers, and overcoming language and cultural barriers with migrant farm workers. Also, browse through 20 brand new Toolbox Talks, designed to help farm supervisors hold safety meetings with farm workers prior to engaging in a particular task or series of tasks for the day.
