This Week (March 10-16), the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA) is encouraging all Canadians to celebrate Safe & Strong Farms.
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.
“Safety is essential to a Safe & Strong Farm,” says Marcel Hacault, CASA’s Executive Director. “Building a base that is safe and strong supports the wellness of your family and the success of your farm.”
CASW 2019 also marks the third year of the AgSafe Ribbon campaign, which celebrates Safe & Strong Farms and raises awareness about the importance of farm safety.
