This activity will incorporate findings of all the other project components as they become available into the Sustainable Winegrowing Program (SWP). It will upgrade and update the SWP web site as needed and will be one of the principal vehicles to quickly introduce new techniques to the community of growers and wine makers. Besides the annual conference and workshops, this will be a critical educational tool to ensure adoption of research results. Regular reports on the industry wide adoption of the SWP will be useful to track sector impact on environmental sustainability.
The objectives for this project are:
- To outline the required elements of a winery specific Health and Safety program. This outline would be presented to the BC Wine Institute R+D committee.
- To develop a template “Health and Safety” manual that can be easily modified by each winery.
- To develop a training outline to ensure that Management and staff are appropriately trained to perform their respective duties in accordance with the safety standards established by each specific winery and WCB.
