Farm Safety Day
October 27, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pmFree
We all want to come home safe at the end of the day but emergencies can happen at any time and being prepared is the best bet to guarantee you and your families safety. Please join us on October 27 at the Vilna Cultural Centre to learn how to improve your farm’s safety, the components of a farm safety plan, and an overview of the tools and resources available. ATCO will be on hand to talk about electrical safety. As well as a presentation about dealing with mental stress and staying focused to stay safe.
Farm workers are now protected under the Alberta Workers Compensation Board. Come and learn who (and under what circumstances) shall be covered by WCB. As well as upcoming changes, who falls under optional coverage, the costs of coverage and what must be done when someone is hurt while working on the farm.
