Welcome to the Dairy Industry Risk Communication Tool

This tool has been designed to provide an overview of the potential risks in the dairy supply chain and how they are managed. It covers the potential risks in Public Health, Food Safety, OH&S, Environment, Animal Welfare, Biosecurity and Animal Health. It is designed to show how these risks are managed through one or more of the following control processes: Standards (national and/or global), Regulatory systems, Market forces, Industry/commercial programs and/or Traceability/verification programs. The risks span the whole supply chain from pre-farm to markets.

To use the tool, simply select a risk, and you will see what controls there are to manage this potential risk and where in the supply chain they are applied.
