SAASE Wraps Up Provincial Safety Day Program for 2017

By: Glen Duck, Saskatchewan Association of Agricultural Societies and Exhibitions

Students participate in a Provincial Safety Day in Biggar
More than 6,000 students across Saskatchewan attended one of the Provincial Safety Day events offered through the Saskatchewan Association of Agricultural Societies and Exhibitions (SAASE) in 2017. Now in its sixth year, the program has grown to include 20 safety days in 18 communities.

SAASE, in partnership with Saskatchewan’s Agricultural Societies, the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture, the Progressive Agriculture Foundation, the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA), the Community Initiatives Fund (CIF) and Farm Credit Canada are working to keep our children safe by teaching them about safety. 

The program would not happen without the dedication and commitment of the many volunteers, Agricultural Societies and companies, both provincially and locally, that are involved.  Over 500 volunteers from across Saskatchewan commit more than 6,000 hours to working with our youth to help keep them safe.

Safety days are usually held at the fairground of one of SAASE’s Agricultural Societies.  Volunteers set up the event and children rotate through a series of stations manned by volunteers and company representatives.  Communities have safety stations relevant to their area of the province.  In 2017, the top 10 safety stations were: Fire Safety, ATV Safety, Electrical Safety, Chemical Safety, Animal Safety, First Aid, Grain Safety, Tractor Safety, Lawn Equipment Safety and Water Safety.

The 18 communities hosting safety days in 2017 were – Asquith, Biggar, Kelvington, Kindersley, Leroy, Lloydminster, Maryfield, Meadow Lake, Montmarte, Moose Jaw, North Battleford, Ponteix, Prince Albert,  Spiritwood, Swift Current, Unity, Weyburn and Yorkton. In addition to the host communities, schoolchildren from 30 communities in the surrounding areas also attended safety days.

SAASE, all of our partners and volunteers look forward to coordinating safety days across Saskatchewan in 2018.  The success of the safety days is dependent upon industry support. If you are interested in becoming a partner in the program you are encouraged to give the SAASE office a call at (306) 565-2121.
