Are you one in five or one in 20?

The third week of March each year is dedicated as Farm Safety Week. Before going out to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day where everyone enjoys a good time and forgets their troubles for a while, we decide how we are going to get home safe. Unfortunately, when farm accidents or even deaths caused by farm accidents happen to a farmer, one of the family or an employee, just didn’t take that extra few seconds to think before getting into an eventual dangerous or tragic situation. Failure to take that extra second to think before moving has been the main reason that farming has been the most dangerous profession in Canada.
A silent enemy has been slowly but surely creeping into all our lives (not just farmers), increasingly over the past few years.
