Agricultural Safety Week Proclaimed in Saskatchewan

Released on March 10, 2017

The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed March 12 to 18 as Agricultural Safety Week in Saskatchewan.

“With spring seeding approaching, it’s important that our industry keeps on-farm health and safety in the forefront of our minds,” Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart said.  “This week serves an important reminder for all of us to review our farm safety plans and ensure that anyone who works, lives or visits a farm is staying safe.”

Agricultural Safety Week in Saskatchewan is recognized each year in conjunction with Canadian Agricultural Safety Week, a partnership between the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association and the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, as a way of raising awareness of on-farm safety issues.

“Farming is physically demanding and often hazardous work,” Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said.  “I’d like to remind everyone working in agriculture that the best way to ensure safety is through a safety program.  Make sure you and your employees have the training to operate equipment, and that you stay rested and alert so you can keep yourselves safe.”

This year, Canadian Agricultural Safety Week is focused on appealing to adults.  It focuses on providing adults the tools to understand the challenges unique to their farm and how to best keep every generation in their family safe.

Please visit www.saskatchewan.ca/farmsafety for more information about farm safety and for access to the Farm Safety Guide.

Agricultural Safety Week is supported by the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, Canadian Agricultural Safety Association, Canadian Centre for Health and Safety in Agriculture, the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan, and the Saskatchewan Abilities Council.
