Canadian Agricultural Safety Week

March 15 - 21, 2015

 

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 the Canadian Federation of Agriculture (CFA) team up every year to celebrate Canadian Agricultural Safety Week in the third week of 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.

 

Canadian Agricultural Safety Week (CASW) is a public education campaign focusing on the importance of practicing safe agriculture. In 2015, CASW takes place March 15 to 21 under the theme Be the Difference! which encourages individuals and organizations to make a difference for farm safety.


CASW 2015 is presented by long-time farm safety supporter, Farm Credit Canada, and is brought to you by CASA and CFA with assistance from the Government of Canada through Growing Forward 2, a federal, provincial and territorial initiative.
