"I remember like it was yesterday. The freezing rain was stinging my face and I was lying there in the mud - so cold - with the horses sniffing and milling around above me. I could feel a painful heat and numbness rising up my body from my legs – like boiling water. All I could think was, 'Holy smokes! Maybe I’m dying here!'"

These are the words of Edwin Taylor of Grand Valley, Ontario, a survivor of a horrific farm incident that changed his life and his family’s in an instant.

One hundred and five acres on three locations, 12 fruit and vegetable crops staffed or worked by six to 25 seasonal employees and two minor injuries in 20 years of business. That’s a farm safety success story!

Fact Sheet # 8: Safety is in the air

Fact Sheet # 8: Safety is in the air

TheBarnders8-2009_phixr.jpg

Dusty fields, mouldy hay, silos, grain bins, bird droppings, dust from animal hair, feathers, or fur, chemicals, manure, feedstuffs – the list of potential air-born hazards on a farm is endless.
Farmer’s Lung and Organic Dust Toxicity Syndrome (ODTS) are just two of many reactions to farm-related respiratory hazards and can result in costly medical treatment, permanent lung damage or death.
