Welcome to the PEIFA Farm Safety Program

The PEI Federation of Agriculture cares about family farms and the health and well being of the families and farm workers that work hard every day to keep those operations successful.

Please visit the links above often to browse through safety information available to you for tips and reminders on keeping yourself and others safe.

Check out the extensive list of Safety Articles that we continue to collect, or view some Safety Videos on various safety topics.

Have a look at the Farm Safety Check-list to see how you are doing on the safety front and strive to be as safe as possible.

Check out what Training Courses are currently scheduled, what is available online (some are free) and others that are available at various times during the year.

Do you have foreign workers on your farm? Have them check out the Foreign Worker Training videos in English, Chinese and Spanish. Or see what Safety signs are available for you in these languages by download or through the PEIFA office in “ready to hang” format.

Have you completed a Hazard and Risk Assessment for your farm lately? It is important to get together with your workers and discuss possible hazards and risks around the farm. The PEI Federation of Agriculture along with the Workers Compensation Board of PEI has developed resources to help you do an assessment of your own farm. Resources include sample hazard and risk topics along with possible solutions to help minimize the chance of an accident or workplace injury. Please view our sample hazard and risk assessments along with printable worksheets for your farm.

Are you a farm owner that isn’t currently covered by Workers Compensation and are wondering how you and your employees may benefit? Here are some common questions answered for you to help you make an informed decision on getting coverage for your farm.

And finally, if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to call your PEIFA Farm Safety Officer, Crystal Fullerton, at 368-7289, or email her at cfullerton@peifa.ca!
