The "Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance" will focus on improving awareness of antimicrobial resistance among farmers, veterinary professionals, authorities, policymakers, and consumers. It also emphasizes building national capacities for surveillance and monitoring of AMR and antimicrobial use in food and agriculture and promoting best practices.

Washington L&I Doubling Up 2017 Ag Safety Conferences

"Last year's conference in Wenatchee had record attendance, so this year we're offering a second event for the Yakima area," said Rebecca Llewellyn, the department's conference manager. "Each event offers topics that are important to the local areas, there'll be something for everybody."

Washington state's annual Agriculture Safety Day will be twice as good this year, the state Department of Labor & Industries promises, because for the first time the February event is being held in two locations to meet increasing safety and health training needs in the agricultural industry. The conference will be held Feb. 1 at the Wenatchee Convention Center and Feb. 22 at the Yakima Convention Center.

The agricultural industry is one of the largest in Washington state and has one of the highest injury rates, according to L&I.

"Last year's conference in Wenatchee had record attendance, so this year we're offering a second event for the Yakima area," said Rebecca Llewellyn, the department's conference manager. "Each event offers topics that are important to the local areas, there'll be something for everybody."

The events are co-sponsored by L&I and the Governor's Industrial Safety and Health Advisory Board; they feature training on how to manage hazards associated with workplace violence, tractor/ATV safety, pesticide safety, trellis dangers, and other potential hazards, with many of the workshops presented in both English and Spanish.
