Health & Safety Standards
Based on feedback from the 2018 AGM, LMS is currently researching the development of a provincial beef industry Health & Safety Program. This Program would provide a set of occupational health and safety practices and protocols that livestock businesses and regulators could follow to reduce workplace injury and provide standardized guidelines for audit.

This program is still in the early phases but we would like your feedback:
Do you currently have up-to-date safety protocols and procedures for your business?
Yes
No
If you have any questions about this program, please contact our office or Alan Jackson, LMS President.
