Emergency Animal Disease Response
In 2016 AMPC identified the need for a training program to ensure red meat personnel understand their roles and responsibilities in an Emergency Animal Disease event. We engaged Joan Lloyd Consulting to develop an Emergency Animal Disease training program for the red meat processing sector, deliver regional training days to red meat industry personnel and implement the training package in an electronic format that can be accessed by those who cannot attend the training days or need to refresh their understanding.
The training program was delivered as a workshop during the National Meat Industry Training Advisory Council Limited (MINTRAC) Network Meetings January - June 2017. Very positive feedback was received from workshop participants with more than 95% of participants saying the workshop met its aim of raising awareness of how a plant might participate in an Emergency Animal Disease response. In addition, 99% of participants said the information learned would be useful when they returned to work.
The e-learning training modules are available below.
