Farm Safety Nova Scotia assumes a role of advocating on behalf of farmers, in conjunction with the Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture, on current health and safety issues in the Nova Scotia agriculture industry. Our goal is to help bridge the gap between the farm and regulations, which requires an active advocacy role.
Some farm safety issues that Farm Safety Nova Scotia and the Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture have advocated on include:
- Funding for farm health and safety
- Transportation related issues
- Department of Labour Inspection issues
- Temporary road signs for tractor turning and road crossing
If you have any issues related to farm health and safety requiring advocacy please let us know.
