Stop • Think • Act Program

 

Farm Safe, Not Lucky

In collaboration with Imperial Oil and their Esso and branded bulk fuel resellers, WSPS and its network of rural volunteers are helping farmers, agriculture workers and farm families keep safe through a program called Stop Think Act (STA).


As a component of Imperial’s own well-established safety program, STA is a simple, yet powerful behaviour-based safety program that encourages people to consider the task at hand and ask themselves how their own actions could contribute to a safe and productive outcome.

Using a self-questioning methodology, the program advises people to think carefully about how they are about to perform a task and stop if it can’t be done safely.

WSPS rural volunteers are being trained as Stop • Think • Act ambassadors in partnership with Imperial.

Imperial and WSPS have developed a series of Stop • Think • Act videos. These short videos apply the STA methodology to key safety topics in agricultural workplaces.

This project is funded in part by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.
