"There's information on they're going to encounter in that farm setting. There's information about drowning in rural areas, entanglement, toxic substance exposure, crashing situations, electrical hazards, oil and gas facilities they may come across when they're working in the field." said Executive Director, Laura Nelson.

 

Nelson believes it is important young people learn rural safety early on.

 

"Whether you're rural or urban, often young people are very enthusiastic, they have a lot of energy, they are excited about finally getting to a point where people are taking them seriously and they can do things. They take all of that and they can get themselves in situations where maybe they don't have the experience to match their enthusiasm."


Anyone can get a DVD free of cost by contacting the Alberta Farm Safety Centre at (403) 752-4585 or emailing safetyctr@abfarmsafety.com.
