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 hands 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 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.
