FREE FARM SAFETY COURSE

On average, 13 people are killed on Saskatchewan farms each year. Of these fatal injuries, 75% involve machinery such as grain trucks, semis, tractors and combines. Most incidents occur in the farm yard and of all serious injuries that happen, 14% involve youth.  (Statistics by the Saskatchewan Farm Injury Surveillance Program at the University of Saskatchewan.)

The Saskatchewan Safety Council has recently developed an interactive online safety training program for farmers and ranchers, and, it’s free.

The goal of this 3-hour training program is to reduce the number of these injuries and fatalities.

On this page are a variety of small linked graphics that may be used to share this program.

Thank you for working with us to achieve a safe Saskatchewan.
