Sponsorship Supports CASA’s BeGrainSafe Program

June 6, Winnipeg, MB –The Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA) is pleased to announce that FMC Canada has committed $37,000 to the BeGrainSafe Program.

CASA’s BeGrainSafe program, now in its third year, delivers grain safety awareness, firefighter rescue training and on-site workplace training. BeGrainSafe has three major components: a website, tabletop displays and the heart of the program, the BeGrainSafe mobile demonstration and training unit. Thanks to sponsors like FMC Canada in 2018, the BeGrainSafe program reached over 300,000 individuals and trained over 200 firefighters in grain rescue procedures.

“We are pleased that FMC’s commitment to safety includes farmers and their families,” says Marcel Hacault, CASA’s Executive Director. “By supporting the BeGrainSafe program, FMC Canada helps lead the way in improving safety culture in the ag industry.”

“Workplace safety is a core value for all of us at FMC,” says Katrina Schmidt, marketing manager at FMC Canada. “BeGrainSafe will help our customers gain the preventative education and life-saving training to keep themselves, their families and employees safe.”
