Put a bandage around your finger

Every year different countries designate a day, a week or a month for farm safety. In Canada the third week of March is reserved each year as farm safety month.
Farm safety is not just a one week job. People are injured and die in farm-related accidents every month, week and day of the year. Nobody gets up at dawn and thinks, “Today I’ll get killed on my farm!”
Every occupation can have dangerous areas. You may even be killed in a car accident while going to work. The four most dangerous professions in Canada for decades have been farming, mining, forestry and policing! For most of these years, farming has topped the list.
