PennAg Industries Association and Sunoco Logistics have recently announced that they will be partnering to develop a biosecurity training and education module. The module aims to raise awareness of the basics of farm safety and etiquette.
The biosecurity training module will be tested in late 2016. Sunoco Logistics’ employees, contractors and vendors will undertake the course as part of their safety training for the Mariner East 2 pipeline project.
Commencing in January 2017, the module will be made widely available during the Pennsylvania Farm Show. Following its launch, the energy industry and other organisations and companies that work on or near farms will be encouraged to take the training module.
Biosecurity is the prevention of disease from spreading to or from areas occupied by livestock. The biosecurity module will be provided free of charge and will be available on PennAg’s website.
It will be used to educate users on the necessary steps that must be taken to protect animals and crops when working on or near a farm, ranch or other agri-business.
