Brand New Videos to Train New Dairy Workers

Still-shot from “Outside Animal Care (Dairy Safety Training Part I, Section 1)” video.

The New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health (NYCAMH) is promoting a series of on-boarding safety training videos for new dairy workers. These free videos were created by the High Plains Intermountain Center for Agricultural Health & Safety (HICAHS) and are a valuable resource for dairy farmers looking to train new workers quickly and efficiently about safety from day one of employment.

HICAHS describes these videos as follows: “Today’s dairy workforce needs to know how to handle large animals, operate specialized equipment, and deal with extreme weather conditions without harming themselves or animals. In this video series created by HICAHS, ‘Considering Human and Animal Safety,’ best practices are outlined on how to safely and productively care for dairy cows while reducing risk of injury to yourself. Watching this video series will help you get the proper training and guidance for a healthy, productive workforce.”

These videos are available for free on the HICAHS Website, the NYCAMH website and on the U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers YouTube Channel. All videos are narrated in English and Spanish. Pre and post tests are also available, to assess workers knowledge of the safety concepts described in the videos.
