March 13-19 is Canadian Agricultural Safety Week (CASW).

In 2022, organizers are focusing on why safety is essential for all farming operations.

“Farm safety is not just about knowing what hazards exist,” says Andrea Lear, CASA’s Chief Executive Officer. “Farm Safety is also about changing unsafe behaviours and habits, understanding the positive business case for incorporating safety on farming operations and addressing what it truly means to value safety and health. This year, CASA is excited to host conversations about making meaningful and long-lasting change for the health and safety of everyone that lives, works, and visits farms and ranches.”

For more than a decade, CASA has been raising awareness about the importance of safety on Canadian farms through CASW, which takes place every year during the third week of March.

In 2022, CASW sponsors include long-time corporate sponsor Farm Credit Canada, as well as CN, Syngenta, Bayer Crop Science and Fertilizer Canada.

The theme this year is 'Safety is Our Standard'.

March 13-19, 2022, is the first Canadian Agricultural Safety Week under the banner 'Your Farm, Your Family, Your Success'.
