Featured Initiative:

Digger's Guide to Safe Bone Burying

Digger is ready to help kids learn how to dig safely with his interactive guide to Safe Bone Burying.

Digger’s Guide to Safe Bone Burying is an interactive educational video developed by the ABCGA and Safety in Schools to introduce 9- to 12-year-olds to basic safe digging practices in the classroom and to the importance of calling or clicking before you dig.

The interactive game will be distributed to students with the help of Ag for Life, an Alberta organization that offers educational programming to help improve rural and farm safety.

The program was made possible thanks to funding from Alberta Labour through an Alberta Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Innovation and Engagement Grant.
