The Agricultural Health and Safety Network

The Canadian Centre for Health and Safety in Agriculture partnered with the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) and six Rural Municipalities in 1988 and founded the Agricultural Health and Safety Network with the mission “to improve health and safety on the farm through education, service, and evaluation research.”  Over the last 25 years, the Network has steadily increased to 219 RMs including over 27,000 Saskatchewan farm families.
