BeGrainSafe has received committments from a number of sponsors to help in support of The Canadian Agricultural Safety Association's (CASA) Grain Safety Program. At the heart of this program is the mobile demonstration unit. The mobile unit will have three purposes: train first responders in grain extraction procedures, bring awareness to the general public about the dangers of grain entrapment and provide on-site training to workplaces.
Crop Production Services (CPS), the retail subsidiary of Agrium Inc., was the first major contributor to BeGrainSafe with a committment of $80,000 over three years to BeGrainSafe and CASAâ€™s charitable arm, the FarmSafe Foundation.
Canadian Canola Growers Association, Alberta Pulse Growers, Alberta Wheat Commission, and Prairie Oat Growers Association, Alberta Canola Producers Commission, Manitoba Canola Growers, Manitoba Corn Growers Association, Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission, Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission and Red Deer County have committed over $250,000 over the next two years.
G3 Canada Limited (G3), Canada's newest grain handling company, is also contributing $75,000 over three years to BeGrainSafe, CASAâ€™s new Grain Safety Program.
CN has committed $50,000 over 2 years to BeGrainSafe.
