Help prevent farm injuries
By Canadian Agricultural Safety Association
Jul. 24, 2012 - Are you passionate about farm safety? Do you operate a farm and want access to the latest tools and information on safe farming practices? Do you work with an organization that's dedicated to preventing injuries and deaths on the farm? If you fit any of these categories or even just want to learn more, consider becoming a member of the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association today!
Membership is easy. Just log on to CASA’s website at www.planfarmsafety.ca and click on the membership link. You can also register by phone at 1-877-452-2272. Membership is payable by credit card or cheque.
Your membership supports CASA’s work to prevent farm injuries in Canada. And it has benefits.
First of all, your membership will help CASA support farm safety education for youth. This year, more than 14,000 children and participants will take part in Progressive Agriculture Safety Days across rural Canada, learning about everything from safe animal handling to sun safety, because the death of one child is too many.
It will also help CASA promote the Canada FarmSafe Plan, designed to put farmers in the driver’s seat, so they can implement a health and safety plan to protect themselves, their workers, and their families. The core plan is free to download on our website (www.casa-acsa/canadafarmsafeplan), The comprehensive plan is available for a discounted cost to members.
And those benefits? If you’re a member looking for agricultural safety training displays or resources, order CASA’s agricultural safety teaching tools such as our chemical-look-a-like display, impairment goggles, or gravity flow grain wagons. Items can be ordered right from our website and CASA members can borrow teaching tools at no charge and receive free one-way shipping. Borrowing not enough? Members can purchase safety teaching tools for a significant discount.
Every Monday, CASA members receive Communiqué, a weekly electronic roundup of ag safety news around the world. Four times a year, you'll get a longer e-newsletter detailing national farm safety successes and challenges. And you'll receive a discount to register for CASA's annual conference planned this year for October 10-12 in St John's, Newfoundland.
If you have any questions, please contact CASA at 1-877-452-2272.
