Ag Safety Week

Fertilizer Canada is a proud partner of Canadian Agricultural Safety Week (CASW) taking place March 15-21, 2020. This year we’re highlighting the role that the Canadian fertilizer industry has taken in developing proactive safety and security measures. We continue to be committed to providing safety resources at all levels of the supply chain.

Canadian Agricultural Safety Week (CASW) is an annual public campaign focusing on the importance of safe agriculture. “Safe & Strong Farms: Grow an AgSafe Canada” is the second year of a three-year campaign celebrating farm safety across Canada. The aim of the campaign is to empower farmers, farm families and farming communities to build (2019), grow (2020), and lead (2021) the agricultural industry in safety and sustainability.

Farm Credit Canada is the presenting sponsor of CASW and longtime supporter of other farm safety programs, including the Back to Ag Program that supports the cost of adaptive technology for farmers that have experienced a traumatic injury.
