Spotlight on safety at Ag For Life training night

Province wide we’ve had some beautiful weather and farmers are well aware the time to get back into the fields is quickly approaching – and they are eagerly awaiting.

Safety is something that can be overlooked when people are in a hurry but it still needs to be in everyone’s radar as we get ready for the season.

Farmers and ranchers gathered together on March 16 at Rocky Mountain Equipment in Balzac, Alberta for the annual Ladies Farm Safety Training night, as a part of Canadian Agricultural Safety Week.

Kaz Matsumoto from STARS, Mo Gudzowaty from Rocky Mountain Equipment, Robin Tharle-Oluk from Elite Injury, and Luree Williamson from Agriculture for Life all presented at the event.

This was the second time the event was put on by Agriculture for Life, and according to CEO Luree Williamson it was a huge success.

The Agriculture for Life’s safety event teaches ladies how to maintain a safe environment for themselves and lets them know how they can ensure safety for their friends and families.

Williamson says there are already plans in the making for next year’s event, with hopes of expanding across Alberta, adding new discussion topics, and more hands on workshops.
