Dairy Safety Training Program materials from the California Worker Occupational Safety and Health Training Program
The Dairy Safety Training Guide was developed to help California dairy employers educate their employees on safe practices to reduce injury and illness when working with animals and machinery. In addition to the training guide a fotonovela “How Pablo Learned to Work Around Cattle” was developed to provide training to dairy industry employees on basic safe handling practices of cows and bull. Some items in this resource are specific to California dairy industry to meet CAL OSHA standards. Wisconsin is a federal OSHA state. These materials are available in English and Spanish at http://agcenter.ucdavis.edu/Announce/dairy_guide.php
