positive influence on behavior.

Communication and
feedback
While it is important to set biosecurity goals, it is also important to
measure how well those goals are
being met. Numerous approaches
can be used, but none really reflect
how compliant employees are or offer continuous monitoring.

The findings could be used
in the selection of poultry farm
managers and supervisors, and
they may then be able to positively
influence co-workers.
It is also known that when people make a written commitment,
their behavior is more likely to
be consistent with what they have
agreed to, and introducing such

A study in the hospital sector
using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology has
looked at how often health care
professionals disinfect their hands
prior to contact with patients, and
a similar system will be trialed on
two poultry farms over upcoming
months in Quebec.
The trial will consist of insert-

ing a chip into employees' personal footwear, and into farm boots,
while an antenna will be positioned on the barn entrance floor
and connected to the hand sanitizer. For each visit, the antenna will
detect if an employee has changed
out of personal footwear and into
farm boots, and will monitor
sanitizing. If biosecurity breaches
occur, they will be recorded and
a real-time alarm will be sounded
to modify behavior.
This system will allow
evaluation of how effective
edcation and training are,
and could monitor compliance in real time.
Biosecurity compliance will
remain a significant challenge
as it is related to behavior, and
building a behavior-based system
will help in creating a biosecurity
culture, Racicot said, continuing that it is worth remembering
that building a culture is a value
and not a priority. Priorities can
change, but values should not. ■
