AgSafe Alberta Society Appoints Executive Director

-

The AgSafe Alberta Society has announced the appointment of its first executive director, Jody Wacowich. With an extensive background in business management, Wacowich joins AgSafe from Carbon, Alberta and will take the lead in providing strategic leadership to strengthen farm and ranch safety culture in Alberta.

“What attracted me to AgSafe Alberta Society is the fact that its mandate is aimed at making a positive contribution to Alberta’s agriculture community,” said Wacowich. “Safety is something that has always been a priority for farmers and ranchers and AgSafe takes that a step further by simplifying the process in a way that suits each individual operation.”

Launched in 2017, the AgSafe Alberta Society is in place to develop and deliver farm safety management tools, resources and programs for farmers and ranchers in the province of Alberta. AgSafe’s goal is to enable farm businesses to take the next step to establishing practical farm safety management programs that will help enhance the development of a ‘safety culture,’ where safety is a fully integrated part of the farm business.

“Our board sees AgSafe as an organization that can close a gap by providing resources to foster farm and ranch safety culture in Alberta,” said Kent Erickson, AgSafe Chair. “Now with a dedicated executive director in place, we look forward to building on this momentum to execute our strategic plan.”
