Business Safety Plans for Reopening (Equine Farms)

June 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Business Safety Plans Required For All Farms

Cornell Cooperative Extension Webinar Series on developing safety plans for compliance and to reduce liability risk     

New York State requires businesses to have a specific business safety plan in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes all farms, both food and non-food producing. In addition, a well-written and executed business safety plan will help reduce business liability risk during and after the pandemic. A Cornell Task Force recently developed materials to directly support farms in the plan writing process.

Cornell Cooperative Extension and Cornell Agricultural Workforce Development are offering a “NY Forward Business Safety Plan Support” webinar series with specialized webinars for Dairy/Livestock/Crop Farms, Fruit/Vegetable Farms, Retail Farms, Equine Farms and Greenhouse/Landscaping/Ornamental Farms.

The webinars, led by Extension specialists, will:

  • Walk farmers through the need for and process to complete a safety plan as is required by all businesses for compliance with NY Forward
  • Demonstrate project tools developed by Extension to write and complete a plan
  • Share curated resources for specific industries


7:00 – 9:00 PM | June 17

The webinars are free and pre-registration is required. Recording links will be posted on the Cornell Agricultural Workforce Development NY Forward Business Safety Plans page.
