In 2013, the Washington state Department of Labor and Industries awarded WWIF a $195,646 grant to provide Performance-Based Safety Training For Small/Mid-Sized Wineries. Using these funds, WWIF created a safety training needs-assessment for small to mid-sized wineries. Using the information gathered, WWIF developed performance-based training methodologies to help reduce winery employee illness, injury and fatalities. Tools developed included training manuals, and web-based instruction materials in English and Spanish to reduce winery accidents, improve adoption of safe work practices, and establish a “safety culture” in small and mid-sized wineries. Wineries can download a template and customize a safety manual for their own company or location.
