Agri Business Safety Network
Creating a culture of health and safety is the cornerstone of the 'Agri Business Safety Network'.
Through the delivery of relevant safety information, training and networking opportunities in regional meetings across the province, this program will target the creation of a culture of health and safety in agri business workplaces.
The individuals participating in the "Network" will also play a key role in the program by taking a leadership role in the development of relevant program, speaker presentations and training to be delivered. The ultimate goal of the network is to give the participants both the tools and the personal connections they need to assist them in eliminating workplace injuries/accidents and to make agri business workplaces healthier and safer for all employees.

OABA Health and Safety Committee
Since 2006, OABA has operated a Health and Safety Committee with representation from a cross section of member firms. This committee works to develop and implement strategies to reduce workplace injuries and accidents in the agri business sector. Based on the health and safety needs of the membership in the agri-business sector, this committee develops sector specific standards, products, programs and services that will add value to the health and safety efforts of member firms. The OABA Health and Safety Committee works closely with ACUTE Safety Training to ensure that training programs and services are meeting the needs of the membership.
