BASF Canada Agricultural Solutions (BASF) is relaunching its BASF Safety Scouts program in 2022, bringing the successful initiative back for a second season in support of farm safety for children and their families.
Last year’s initiative was a great success and sparked the interest of farm families from coast to coast, including:
– More than 2,000 BASF Safety Scout kits requested and distributed in 2021.
– 564 Canadian communities were reached, with families from nine provinces signing up for the kits.
