In an average year, Canada mourns the loss of over 100 adults and children due to agricultural fatalities. Canada’s agricultural sector is one of the most hazardous industries in which to work.
Producer groups, non-profits, government bodies, industry and researchers are working together to keep our farm families safe throughout Wellington County.
Wellington County Farm & Home Safety Association promotes farm safety in the agricultural sector. We work with organizations across Wellington County to support initiatives that equip producers, their families and their workers with the information and tools needed to make farms a safe place to live, work and play.
Over the last few years, we have focused our efforts on ATV, Grain Bin Safety and sharing the road with agricultural equipment.
