Harvest Hub: Staying safe during harvest
Sponsored by Dekalb
Harvest is a time of short timelines and quick turnarounds at the mercy of the weather and crop readiness. It’s hard to find the time to get everything done, let alone sleeping and eating, which can lead to rushed decisions and increased risk.
This episode features Rob Gobeil, agricultural health and safety specialist with the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association. He discusses the factors that increase the risk of accident and injury at harvest time, as well as things farmers can do to protect themselves, their employees and their operation.
