Agricultural injury is an important issue affecting Ontario residents living and working on the province's over 50,000 farms. This issue of the Ontario Injury Compass looks at agricultural fatalities and discusses prevention strategies including roll-over protective structures (ROPS), age-appropriate work and occupational health and safety practices for farms.

Drowning is an important issue for Ontario residents as we move into the summer months. The June issue of the Ontario Injury Compass looks at ED visits associated with drowning, and discusses important prevention strategies such as improved legislation for pool fencing, lifejackets, adult supervision, CPR, and swimming lessons.

We are pleased to let you know the Watch Your Step 2014 National Fall Prevention Conference presentations are posted on the website. Please note that some speakers were not able to share their information online. To download a presentation, simply go to the conference program page.
