Agricultural Equipment Panel – Feb 26

Farming requires the use of specialized agricultural equipment which is often imported or fabricated on-farm.  However, farmers are facing difficulties in complying with Nova Scotia Workplace Health and Safety Regulations for this equipment because it has not been approved under the required standards.

Farm Safety Nova Scotia is hosting an Agricultural Equipment Panel on February 26 from 1pm-4pm at the Old Orchard Inn, Wolfville. We hope to have representation from farmers, agricultural equipment dealers, agricultural engineers, commodity groups and other key stakeholders.

Bruce Johnson will be joining us from British Columbia to speak on his experiences with agricultural equipment and regulatory requirements. Greg Green, Manager of Technical Services with the Nova Scotia Department of Labour and Advanced Education will be speaking on regulatory requirements and processes here in Nova Scotia.

Following the above presentations, we will be having a roundtable discussion on what our industry should practicably do moving forward to ensure the equipment used Nova Scotia farms is safe and approved for use.
