Fertilizer safety protocol launched

Ten years of effort have gone into Fertilizer SAFE which is launching in this, the Canadian Agriculture Safety Week. 

The Fertilize SAFE program combines all of Fertilizer Canada's mandatory, audited safety codes and training resources “to emphasize our industry commitment to keeping employees, farmers, first responders and the public safe and secure,” said Fertilizer Canada.

Through industry-enforced codes of practice, educational resources and training tools, Fertilize SAFE helps define safety and security for all industry players. 

The SAFE in Fertilize SAFE is an acronym  for Standardized Codes of Practice, Accessible Training Resources for the entire supply chain, Focused Industry Education and Early and Enforced Industry Adoption.
