Washington State Dairy Safety Network

The Dairy Safety Network project brings bilingual and bicultural safety materials and training opportunities to Northwest dairy owners and managers.

Through the Network, the online Dairy Safety Toolkit (DST) provides curated training materials and tools to be used for on-site training of dairy workers. Materials are in English and Spanish.

This portal also provides moderated discussion forums where users can share success stories and have questions answered by moderators.

Recently added is an in-person train-the-trainer animal handling program developed by Amber Adams-Progar at Washington State University. This training program is free of charge for Washington to dairy owners and managers. This program provides preventive strategies that target commonly reported animal-related injuries.
