Connecting Albertans to farm safety services
By Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development
July 29, 2014 - Albertans now have another tool at their fingertips when it comes to farm safety.
Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development (ARD) has developed and launched a Farm Safety Online Directory with contacts to individuals and organizations providing services in the area of farm safety.
"This directory was created in response to feedback from farmers and agricultural organizations requesting a list of farm safety contacts," says Kenda Lubeck, farm safety coordinator, ARD, Grande Prairie "We compiled a list of businesses and individuals that provide a service relating to awareness, education or training in farm safety. The tool is designed to help people do things like seek advice for creating a farm safety plan, hire a safety program trainer, or find a farm safety presenter for an agricultural event."
The directory was launched in May and currently contains 24 contacts, but Lubeck expects the number of entries to increase as more people become aware of the resource. Contacts are added as requests to be included are received.
Contacts in the directory are not screened or endorsed by Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development.
The directory is available online here. For more information or to submit your company's contact information, contact Kenda Lubeck at firstname.lastname@example.org or 780-538-5606.
