International Dairy Research Consortium (IDRC) Meeting - Western Agriculture Safety and Health Conference

The 2019 International Dairy Research Consortium (IDRC) will focus on Total Worker Health including discussion on the impacts of automation and mechanization. HICAHS organized the IDRC to collaborate with national and international researchers in dairy safety and health, seeking to share successful injury and illness prevention strategies, tested dissemination channels, and novel approaches. The consortium’s objective is to collaborate on research and outreach projects and identify priorities that will ultimately result in the reduction of injuries and illnesses among dairy workers internationally. The consortium has already received enthusiastic commitments from researchers in Sweden, Finland, Germany, Italy, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Denmark.

Western Agriculture Safety and Health Conference

This is a rare opportunity for those engaged in injury and illness prevention research in farming, fishing, and forestry. The western US shares a common history with these vital agricultural industries, landscapes, and communities. Likewise, we share common agricultural practices, workforces, and the means to improve conditions.

Our theme, Cultivating Collaborations, reflects the conference goal to build collaborative relationships and foster the exchange of ideas. Attendees will include academic researchers, students, and extension educators, and a broad range of research partners from community organizations, producers, health care providers, and government agencies.

eLearning Online Course -- Green Chemistry and Chemical Stewardship Online Certificate Program

Explore the principles of green chemistry, an innovative approach for designing safer and more sustainable commercial products and industrial processes. Businesses are facing increasing market and regulatory pressures to use less toxic chemicals in their manufacturing processes and products, and there is a need to develop new solutions and more sustainable substitutes. Learn how to incorporate the principles of green chemistry into product design, material selections, and supply chain decision-making. Examine the connection between chemical toxicity and human health, and assess how these factors influence material and product decision making. Develop a new framework for reducing chemical risks and unintended adverse consequences. Incorporate best practices into your business model that leads to a safer and sustainable approach for the design, use and selection of chemicals.

You will learn the fundamental principles of green chemistry and evaluate frameworks for incorporating chemical toxicity and human health considerations into product design, material selections, and supply chain decision-making.
