Farm Worker Safety Program

CFO ensures all Ontario chicken farmers and workers on-farm, during loading and transport, comply with regulatory requirements for farm worker safety standards. The requirements were developed from recommendations laid out in the Farm Worker Safety Standard which was implemented in January, 2011. The Standard outlines safety features and training that must be in place on-farm and on transport trailers to ensure a safe work place for Ontario farmers, employees and industry partners.
