Farm Credit East is joining with Northeast Dairy Producers Association, New York Farm Bureau and Cornell's Pro-Dairy program to host a webinar to help dairy farm businesses better understand ag operation requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The webinar is set for 10:30 a.m. this Friday, and runs until noon. You're invited.
This webinar is a follow-up to a late August session for the farm organizations held in late August. While the focus of this OSHA requirements webinar is on dairy farms, any Northeast farm business is welcome to participate.
Covering the 'dairy dozen'
Ron Williams from the U.S. Department of Labor-OSHA will present the details. Williams is the Compliance Assistance Specialist for OSHA's Syracuse, N.Y. office. Previously, as an OSHA safety compliance officer, he inspected hundreds of construction job sites and manufacturing facilities. During this webinar, he'll explain what's involved with an OSHA audit and address 12 key areas of concern for OSHA, called the "dairy dozen".
These farm organizations are also working with OSHA staff to identify, evaluate and seek updates for compliance resources for farms that'll be put together in a one-stop-shop website. This farmer-friendly website will provide dairy producers with answers to their OSHA compliance questions regarding the "dairy dozen" and other OSHA-regulated farm areas and activities.
Join Farm Credit East, NEDPA, New York Farm Bureau and Pro-Dairy on Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon to learn more about OSHA requirements for your dairy. This webinar is free for all interested Northeast farm-related businesses and free to participate.
