Safety Resources

The mission of the New York State Brewers Association Safety Committee is to promote and develop safety awareness for all owners and employees of breweries. Through a collective effort of education and hands-on training with our partners, we hope that all NYS breweries operate in a safety-forward manner.

The NYSBA Safety Committee is committed to providing NYS breweries with resources and educational material. In 2022, the NYSBA joined an alliance with the BA, MBAA, the NYS Department of Labor, and OSHA to work together on training and education for our brewing community. By participating in the alliance, you the brewery will have access to:

Through this program alliance, you can have an NYS Dept. of Labor Consultation Representative identify hazards, offer solutions, and provide assistance to correct these hazards; visit your brewery to inspect that will ensure your brewery complies but also ensure you and your employees stay safe. 

All visits through this program are free, confidential, and not reported to OSHA, and no penalties will be accessed!

To participate in this program, feel free to reach out to Alliance (SP) partners listed below. You can also reach out to Paul Leone at with questions.
