Safety Leadership and Management

A novel training program in dairy safety leadership and management is currently being developed to strengthen and fortify safety knowledge among participating dairy supervisors. This training initiative features a wide variety of safety topics, emphasizes techniques to foster strong leadership development, and encourages participants to apply what they have learned through a series of practical safety assessments. This is achieved through a sophisticated sequence of training videos and materials developed by academic and industry experts. The training material will be posted and made available on this website upon completion.
