Canadian Ag Safety Week is March 10-16

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA - March 6, 2019 – Join the Manitoba Farm Safety Program (FSP), in celebrating Canadian Agricultural Safety Week March 10-16 by sharing this year’s message “Safe & Strong Farms”. A healthy farmer is a safe farmer and a safe farmer is a strong farmer. Look after your health and wellness, it’s one of the best investments you can make for the future of your farm.



The FSP is holding a free morning seminar Monday April 8th at the Portage Ex Building from 9AM to noon focused on stress management, mental health and work-life balance for farmers. Pre-registration is required as spaces are limited, so visit www.manitobafarmsafety.ca/training-events to register now. Coffee and refreshments will be provided.




Canadian Ag Safety Week (CASW), happens every March and is intended to educate and inspire farmers and farm families through resources and safety advice articles.


The AgSafe Ribbon Campaign is another way to declare your support and raise awareness about farm safety by wearing a burlap ribbon. Please contact Renée Simcoe at (204) 924-6018 to obtain your AgSafe Ribbons.
