Agricultural Safety Week Proclaimed In Saskatchewan

The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed March 10-16, as Agricultural Safety Week in Saskatchewan.

“Self-care is a vital piece of farm safety,” Agriculture Minister David Marit said.  “This week serves as an important reminder to take care of ourselves by getting adequate rest, taking breaks and being aware of dangerous areas where we work.  Safety should be top of mind, because at the end of the day we all want to come home safely to our families.”

Each year, Saskatchewan’s Agricultural Safety Week is recognized in conjunction with Canadian Agricultural Safety Week, a partnership between the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association and the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, as a way of raising awareness of on-farm safety issues.

“Regardless of the injury, safety is the responsibility of everyone,” Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said.  “We encourage everyone to keep their mind on the task at hand and think about safety in everything that you do.”

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