Farm Safety

On average, 13 people are killed on Saskatchewan farms each year. Of these fatal injuries, 75% involve machinery such as grain trucks, semis, tractors and combines. Most incidents occur in the farm yard and of all serious injuries that happen, 14% involve youth.  (Statistics by the Saskatchewan Farm Injury Surveillance Program at the University of Saskatchewan.)
