Students learn how to be safe on the farm during safety day in Humboldt

Over 200 students learned about safety in and around the farm during the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day program at the Humboldt Uniplex on Wednesday.

Students from Grades 1 through 6 from Bruno School and Grades 1 to 4 from Humboldt Public School took in eight different presentations on different safety issues.

In a video produced by Safe Communities following the event, different community presenters talked about why starting safety conversations at a young age are so important.

Lisa McGowan, health educator through Acquired Brain Injury Services out of Saskatoon City Hospital, said in the post-event video that it is important that they talk to students early about ATV safety, protective gear, and helmets.
