Agricultural Safety Week Proclaimed In Saskatchewan

Released on March 13, 2020

The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed March 15-21, 2020, as Agricultural Safety Week in Saskatchewan.

“Farm safety is important year round, but this week provides an excellent opportunity to bring attention to it,” Agriculture Minister David Marit said.  “Safety is everyone’s responsibility and I’m glad to take the opportunity this week to highlight its importance as we head into another busy growing season.”

Saskatchewan’s Agricultural Safety Week is recognized annually, in conjunction with Canadian Agricultural Safety Week, through a partnership between the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association and the Canadian Centre for Health and Safety in Agriculture.

This week is used to raise awareness of safety issues on farms.  Both physical and mental health are key to safety on Saskatchewan’s farms.  This year’s theme is Grow an Ag Safe Canada as part of a three-year farm safety campaign, Safe and Strong Farms.

“Safe farms are an important part of a safe Saskatchewan,” Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said.  “I want to thank agriculture producers for their hard work and remind them that they should have a safety plan, remain alert and get enough rest.”

Canadian Agricultural Safety Week is focused on creating safe and strong farms by empowering producers, families and communities to lead the agricultural industry in safety and sustainability.
