Canadian Agricultural Safety Week (March 13-19, 2016) is dedicated to raising awareness of health and safety issues on farms and ranches. This year the focus is on keeping kids safe. A farm safety contract is a great way to instill the importance of safety between a parent and child. A contract can help your child understand the hazards and risks found on your farm. You can use a contract as a tool to make a clear commitment to safety on your farm.
HOW TO USE THE TOOL
This contract is both a conversation starter on farm safety and an agreement that lets kids and parents create customized farm safety rules. Print it out, talk about the safety rules important for your farm, write them down and sign it together. Take into consideration your child’s age, ability to understand and physical skills when deciding which rules to include in your farm safety contract.
