The Dairy Safety Toolkit (DSK) was created to increase access to dairy materials such as training and resources and to become a one-stop place for all your dairy safety needs. Using an interactive platform the DSK provides a safe learning and sharing environment for dairy producers, workers, and supervisors in both English and Spanish. The platform includes resources such as training, factsheets, and links to reliable websites. Our modules will provide you with the estimated training time, materials, suggested training environment, and a lesson plan. A key feature of this platform is the online learning community it creates for the dairy industry to have discussion and share tips and resources. To access materials and resources, you can register for the DSK online community or download the modules below:

The training materials have been organized by topics, we recommend selecting applicable topics on a monthly basis to share with employees. Many of the provided materials and activities are suitable for sharing during monthly safety meetings.
