Cause Safety For Children Living In Or Visiting Your Workplace

In agriculture — unlike most industries — farmers live where they work. Children living in a workplace are exposed to machinery, flowing grain, livestock, pesticides and other chemicals. A child may not obey signage or use common sense.

Farm Safety And Hiring Youth On Your Farm

Do you have youth working on your operation? Here is a summary outline of guidelines you may find informative and helpful to ensure your farm is safe for youth.

Workplace incidents — deaths and serious injuries — involving young farm workers are more often than not, preventable. These types of incidents have prompted an increase in farm safety programs, tools, and resources, such as the ones we offer through AgSafe Alberta.

AgSafe Alberta is focused on promoting safety on all farming operations while also respecting the rural way of life. We are actively working with rural stakeholders to develop educational programs to reduce preventable incidents to all workers, including young ones, while also promoting safer agricultural working practices.

The hazards on your farm don’t just disappear when a visitor arrives. They may be even more dangerous to a visitor, who is not fully aware of the potential hazards.
