Safety Week

The Glengarry News - - Classified­s -

Safe and Strong Farms is the theme of the 2019 Cana­dian Agri­cul­tural Safety Week (CASW) that runs from March 10 to 16.

The aim of the cam­paign is to em­power farm­ers, farm fam­i­lies and farm­ing com­mu­ni­ties to build, grow and lead 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 and strong farm,” says Mar­cel Ha­cault, Cana­dian Agri­cul­ture Safety As­so­ci­a­tion Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor. “Build­ing a base that is safe and strong sup­ports the well­ness of your fam­ily and the suc­cess of your farm.”

As a part of CASW, or­ga­niz­ers have pro­duced a num­ber of re­sources in­clud­ing a well­ness se­ries, toolbox talks and a farm stress in­ven­tory and man­age­ment plan. CASW 2019 also marks the third year of the AgSafe Rib­bon cam­paign.
