WorkSafeNB’s Farming Sector Health and Safety Initiative

As a farm owner, you know that your workers and family members are your number one resource. You care about what happens to them. So do we. 

WorkSafeNB is committed to keeping New Brunswick workers healthy and safe through safety leadership, prevention initiatives, and compliance activities. 

To continue to drive a safety-first culture in New Brunswick’s agriculture sector, WorkSafeNB is preparing resources to help you understand and act to improve health and safety at your workplace. These resources will be shared through the Dairy Farmers of New Brunswick this summer and will include special attention on silo safety, machine safeguarding and monthly inspection checklists will help you prepare for future visits from health and safety officers. 

WorkSafeNB recommends that farm operators regularly review operations, ensuring that proper training and safe working procedures are in place, and to regularly review their COVID-19 operational plan.
