Training and Education

The success of any risk-control program is dependent on the support of those at risk. Effective training and education, at the start of working with animals, and regularly repeated, is an important feature of successful allergy prevention programms.12,23 Workers at risk of LAA must understand the nature of the risk if they are to be able to appreciate the actions they can take to protect themselves. These actions include wearing protective equipment when handling the animals, reducing allergen spread, taking care with personal hygiene, and promptly reporting symptoms of allergy. Improved use of protective equipment has been reported following the implementation of education programms.23
