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 producers, farm managers, and farm workers know what to look for and how to control the hazards on their farms.
That’s why the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA) and CFA team up every year to celebrate Canadian Agricultural Safety Week in March. It’s a time to reflect on the importance of farm safety, and empower producers and their families with the information and resources they need to make their farms safer. Each year, CASA and its partners develop a series of helpful resources for farmers and other working in agriculture.
Canadian Agricultural Safety Week is March 10-16, 2019
Canadian Agricultural Safety Week (CASW) is an annual public campaign focusing on the importance of safe agriculture. Safe & Strong Farms: Build an AgSafe Canada is part of a three-year campaign celebrating farm safety across Canada. The aim of the campaign is to empower farmers, farm families and farming communities to build (2019), grow (2020), and lead (2021) the agricultural industry in safety and sustainability.
In 2019 organizers are focusing on supporting farmers, farm families and farming communities through resources, safety advice articles, an AgSafe Ribbon campaign and more.
In 2016, we focused on Keeping Kids Safe and in 2017 we highlighted safety for adults. For the 2018 campaign, we focused on seniors.
