Event Details

Ensure your valued team members have the knowledge and skills needed to stay safe on the job!  Register them now for WCMA's new Basic Safety Training for Dairy Processors, set for Tuesday, September 24 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. (CT) online.

Designed with input from WCMA's Health & Safety Group (HSG), this new course will teach participants about their rights, employer responsibilities, and - most importantly - how to identify, abate, and avoid job-related hazards they may encounter.  The curriculum concentrates on safety strategies related to machine guarding, lockout/tag out, prevention of slips, trips, and falls, chemical controls, and control of hazardous energy - the key focus areas of the Occupational Safety & Health Administration's ongoing Local Emphasis Program for food processors.

This course is taught in an interactive style, and all elements are industry-specific.  Images, videos and illustrative examples included in the training are pulled from dairy processing plants or dairy industry suppliers.

Participants will come away not only with new knowledge, but also with a packet of training materials and a certificate of completion from Chippewa Valley Technical College and WCMA, that they and their employer can retain as a record of quality instruction.

WCMA is offering this training opportunity at the best-value rate of $149 per person.  The course is limited to 24 participants, so act now to reserve your space!
