Northeast Farm Organizations Hosted Webinar on OSHA Inspections for NYS Dairy Farms
Farm Credit East, in conjunction with Northeast Dairy Producers Association (NEDPA), New York Farm Bureau, Cornell’s PRO-DAIRY program and the New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health (NYCAMH), hosted a webinar to provide New York State dairy producers an update on OSHA inspections. This webinar was held on Thursday, February 19. A recording and presentation materials are now available.
Ron Williams from the U.S. Department of Labor-OSHA presented this webinar. Mr. Williams provided an update on inspections that took place on New York State dairy farms in 2014 as part of OSHA’s Local Emphasis Program (LEP). He presented some of the things that have been found during these inspections to help prepare businesses for OSHA inspections in the coming year.
