Operator Safety Training for pellet manufacturers has officially risen to the next level. Working together with the BC Forest Safety Council, we have launched an industry-wide initiative to deliver a free, comprehensive, digital e-learning safety training program for plant operators and supervisors.
Designed to ensure the safe operation of pellet manufacturing facilities, the content for this state-of-the-art learning platform was developed with senior plant operators and subject matter experts from British Columbia and Nova Scotia, focusing on combustible dust, human factors, hazard analysis, process safety management, upset conditions and plant operation.
The collaboration resulted in the online platform, which includes videos, industry resources, and built-in knowledge assessments for plant operators and supervisors. Funding was provided by WorkSafe BC.
While the platform was designed for pellet plants, the training modules are available to the broader wood products sector and other industries that handle combustible dust, such as chemical products, and food and beverage processing.
