Dairy Safety Training Guide


This Dairy Safety Training Guide will help strengthen your health and safety program by helping you teach your employees about hazards they face to reduce the chance of injury.

The Dairy Safety Training Program is designed specifically for dairy owners and managers who need to train employees working in dairies. This training program can help:

  • Prevent job injuries and illnesses. Regular training helps employees learn how to avoid hazards, keeps lines of communication open between you and your employees, and lets employees know that you are serious about promoting safe work practices.
  • Lower workers’ compensation costs. Medical costs in the workers’ compensation systems have begun to increase in recent years.The cost of workers’ compensation for the dairy industry is about three times the average cost of workers’ compensation in California, according to the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau (WCIRB).
  • Reduce the number of days away from work and lost productivity. The best way to reduce costs, retain jobs and maintain a productive workforce is to reduce injuries.
  • Meet training requirements under California’s occupational health and safety laws.
