CASA Conference 2017
October 3 - October 5
CASA will hold its 23rd annual conference and AGM October 3 – 5, 2017 at the Coast Edmonton Plaza Hotel and the Edmonton Expo Centre in Edmonton, Alta.
The 2017 theme is AgSafety – Make it a record year!
Speakers will expose safety concerns around evolving and emerging ag technologies, from drones and autonomous equipment to needle-less injections. Farmers and safety experts will share challenges and solutions.
There’s also a panel exploring employer/employee responsibilities for safety and health.
On Thursday, participants move from the Coast Edmonton Plaza Hotel in downtown Edmonton to the Edmonton Expo Centre choosing one of two half-day workshops. One features a short course on developing a farm emergency plan. The other focuses on brainstorming new themes for Canadian Ag Safety Week 2019-2021. The conference wraps with lunch and a demonstration of CASA’s new BeGrainSafe mobile training unit.
