Safety on the farm is important every day of the year. The Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA) is celebrating Canadian Agricultural Safety Week from March 14 – March 20, 2021. CASA has developed an AgriSafe Ribbon campaign to raise awareness and share the importance of farm safety with your community. CASA, in cooperation with their sponsor, Farm Credit Canada, is asking all Canadians to share the virtual AgSafe ribbon in support of Safe & Strong Farms.
Farm safety is everyone’s responsibility. Help CASA promote an #AgSafeCanada by getting involved. During Ag Safety Week share CASA’s Ag Safe ribbon on social media to promote safety in Canadian agriculture. Use it to start discussions with friends, family and neighbours and encourage those around you to promote safe and strong farms. Declare yourself a farm safety champion and tell your story about why farm safety is important to you.
