Northern Strands Wins Agriculture Equipment Innovation Award at Agri-Trade 2018

Northern Strand was honored to accept the Agriculture Equipment Innovation Award at Agri-Trade 2018 for our cutting edge Bin Safe System. The Agriculture Innovation Award is given to a company that celebrates new ideas, helps farmers meet new requirements, or provides a product to help meet new and changing needs in the agricultural sector. The judges for the Innovation Award are farmers; those who actually use agricultural products on their farm or ranch. The $1,500 price given to Northern Strands was donated to the Northern Strands Group of Companies' charity of choice, the Children's Wish Foundation of Saskatchewan. 


The Bin Safe System is a farm safety equipment product that was developed to allow farmers to climb and easily access a grain bin for repairs or inspections. The system is an extremely cost effective alternative to grain bin walk ways, grain bin cages, and grain elevators. The implementation of new regulations in Alberta Farm Safety requires fall protection on various farms. Thus, the Bin Safe System helps farmers meet new legislative requirements and also provides the agricultural industry with a product to help meet new and changing needs on farms.

Up next for Northern Strands is the 2019 Crop Production Show hosted in Saskatoon Saskatchewan January 15 - 17, 2019 in booths C55-56. We will also be attending the Manitoba Ag Days Trade Show in the Inventor Area in Barn 4 Booth 1819 from January 22, 23, and 24th in Brandon Manitoba!

What is Fall Protection and Why is it Needed in the Alberta Farm Safety Plan?

A new legislation will soon require Alberta farmers to ensure their farms are equipped with proper safety plans. Emergency response, fall protection, and hazard assessments are just some of the plans that will be implemented to ensure worker safety on Alberta farms. The Alberta agriculture sector will now begin using checklists to help maintain these safety programs.

One of the largest concerns for Alberta farm and worker safety is grain bin fall protection. Alberta farmers can use the Northern Strands Grain Bin Fall Protection system to protect workers from a fall while climbing or accessing a grain bin for repairs. The user simply attaches a harness to a traveller and moves the traveller up as they climb the bin. The Grain Bin Fall Protection System meets OH&S farming requirements, is easy to use, and is cost effective all while protecting farmers, workers, or family members from a devastating fall.

Based out of Saskatoon Saskatchewan, Northern Strands provides services to Canadian farmers and mines all across the country. With safety as an integral part of operations, Northern Strands has grown over the years in order to develop this patented Grain Bin Fall Protection System.
