The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) accredited and assessed Safe Working in the Paper Industry has been produced by the Confederation of Paper Industries (CPI) and contains four modules.
These are You and your safety, Working safety, Dealing with emergencies and Maintaining the workplace with the full certified learning programme delivered in an interactive way and backed up with a pocket-sized reference handbook.
CPI head of health and safety Andrew Braund said: CPI and its members work together to ensure that health and safety remains a key priority area. This new course will allow participants to understand the importance of health and safety in a pro-active way, while demonstrating the responsibilities employees have in their own workplace.
The way the course is delivered means that learning is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week so will fit around any shift patterns in place, and this will hopefully encourage more delegates to participate.
All candidates are assessed via a multi-choice examination which can be either in-house or an IOSH exam. The course is also auditable.
