Infection Prevention and Control on Animal Farms - Training Curriculum
Animal agriculture workers can be exposed to a range of infectious diseases, from avian influenza to COVID-19. Two-thirds of emerging infectious diseases in humans come from animals. The University of Washington's Center for One Health Research, Harborview Medical Center, and the Northwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety Continuing Education Program have assembled a set of learning modules to address this important issue. The training modules below are designed to assist the process of creating and implementing infection prevention and control plans on animal farms that will control COVID-19 as well as other infectious diseases important for both human and animal health. Through workplace hazard identification, control and evaluation, and integration of occupational medicine services, such programs can protect the health of both workers and animals on farms.
