CAAR has officially signed a Letter of Understanding with the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA) in support of this year's Canadian Ag Safety Week.

As a Friend of Canadian Ag Safety Week, CAAR has formalized its commitment to raising awareness about farm safety through Canadian Ag Safety Week, which runs from March 12-18. This year's Ag Safety Week coincides with CASA's "Be An Ag Safe Family" campaign. This year's campaign theme is "Appealing to Adults", and will focus on adult safety on the farm.

"Farm safety is of the utmost importance to every member of the agri-retail industry," says Delaney Ross Burtnack, CAAR president and CEO. "Ag Safety Week is a fantastic way to spread this important message, and we are proud to support it."

In support of Ag Safety Week, CAAR will be distributing awareness ribbons from the AgSafe Ribbon Campaign at the 2017 CAAR Conference. Be sure to keep an eye out for the February issue of The Communicator for an in-depth look at this year’s Ag Safety Week.
