Understanding the OSHA Dairy Farm LEP

Understanding the OSHA Dairy Farm LEP

Dairy producers who want a better understanding of the OSHA Dairy Farm Local Emphasis Program are invited to join a webinar on Dec. 6.

In early 2011 the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced that it was working on a local emphasis program (LEP) for inspecting Wisconsin dairy farms. The Dairy Farm LEP was signed at the end of October and a copy is available at http://fyi.uwex.edu/agsafety.

Dairy producers who want a better understanding of the OSHA Dairy Farm Local Emphasis Program (LEP) are invited to join a webinar offered on Dec. 6 from 1 to 3 p.m.

The webinar will be led by Mary Bauer, Compliance Assistance Specialist, OSHA Eau Claire Area Office. She will explain the LEP and what it means for dairy farm employers. 

There are two options for participating in the webinar:

* From your office: You will need a computer connection at  wisc.na4.acrobat.com/common/help/en/support/meeting_test.htm This test will help determine if you can access the webinar. Flash player is required but a download is available at the test site.

* From your local UW-Extension office or other coordinated site: We will work with UW-Extension offices and other partners to find a site convenient for you to participate. It is difficult to prearrange sites with required technology and available meeting space without knowing where participants are located. As group sites are identified, information will be updated on http://fyi.uwex.edu/agsafety

Please register at the Ag Safety website http://fyi.uwex.edu/agsafety/. Indicate in the message your name, mailing address with town and zip code, e-mail, and phone number. Also, indicate if you want to register for participation from your home office or at a local coordinated site. Registration is limited to 50 sites, so registration is very important.

To help arrange coordinated sites and to get webinar directions out in a timely manner, registration is requested by Dec. 1.

If you have questions, please contact Cheryl Skjolaas at skjolaas@wisc.edu or by phone at 608-265-0568.
