How do we observe Canadian Agricultural Safety Week?

Farm Safety Nova Scotia (FSNS) is hosting several events that are open to the agriculture community—farmers, workers, farm families, commodities, and industry extension and support staff!

Young Agricultural Workers Webinar on March 13, online, 1:00-2:00 pm

Join Nova Scotia’s Safety Advisors to look at the specific considerations in hiring youth to work in agriculture. They will cover general young worker safety and the safety information you should share when hiring youth.

An introduction to the Health & Safety Division, employer/employee rights and responsibilities, safety officers and their powers and resources available will be part of the presentation.

Join the discussion on Wednesday, March 13 from 1-2pm online.

AgSafe Ribbon Campaign

CASA is asking all Canadians to join us in celebrating Your Farm, Your Family, Your Success! The AgSafe Ribbon Campaign is a celebration of Canadian Agricultural Safety Week and a way to declare your support and raise awareness about farm safety.

How Can You Participate?

Use the AgSafe Ribbon to:

  • start a discussion about farm safety with your friends, family, and community.
  • declare you are a farm safety champion.
  • tell your story about why farm safety is important to you.

The Canadian Agriculture Safety Association (CASA) would love to see your photos! Connect with them on social media and use the hashtag #FarmSafetyEveryday when talking about the AgSafe Ribbon Campaign.

Physical ribbons are a great way to wear your support. Contact to order (free of charge!) ribbons for your farm, workplace, or community. AGSafe ribbons are also available at some locations of dealerships participating in the dealer discount.
