Safety Coordinators

The Annual Safety Coordinator meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, November 13th from 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m. This meeting has proven to be valuable for your staff that has responsibility for safety.

The meeting will be at the Finney County Fair Grounds in Garden City where we will:

  • Review accident trends in feedyards and dairies
  • Discuss challenges and share ideas of how to deal with those challenges (e.g. cell phones, drug usage, labor shortage, training, weather, etc.)
  • Generate ideas on how to make dairies and feedyards a safer place to work. 

Previous Events

Workers’ Compensation Video – Members of the KLA workcomp program met with their claim representatives, case management nurse, defense attorney and safety director. We will also be conducting a mock Nurse Now call.

On-Boarding Video – Elanco’s Adolfo Cardoza lead a discussion on key points in workplace culture that can dramatically impact turnover and productivity. Also, he reviewed a recent case of an animal activist infiltrating a dairy.

This program will cover how employers can leverage near misses to create a safer workplace. Participants will  experience a mock Nurse Now call and hear key strategies to keep attorneys out of a work comp claim. Adolfo  Cardoza with Elanco Animal Health’s Cattle Business Unit will lead a presentation on the integration of new  employees into the farm culture, also known as culture-boarding. This discussion will cover how creating a  positive workplace culture is critical to long-term business success, and tell how companies that invest in a  structured “on-boarding” process significantly reduce employee turnover and increase productivity. Adolfo  will share examples of how companies have approached this issue, what works, what doesn’t, and how  spending time up front could significantly reduce problems later. In addition, we will review a recent case of  an animal activist infiltrating a dairy and how to reduce the risk of this taking place at your operation.
