WPAC launches Safety Foundation Webinar Series for pellet industry
The Wood Pellet Association of Canada (WPAC)’s Safety Committee, in co-operation with WorkSafeBC, the University of British Columbia Biomass and Bioenergy Research Group, and our media partner Canadian Biomass magazine, has launched the Safety Foundation webinar series.
This six-part series, focused on process safety, has broad applications across all sectors and is free and open to everyone. The first webinar in the series is now available and new webinars will be released every two weeks. “Safety is the foundation of our pellet industry,” says Fahimeh Yazdan Panah, director of research and technical development at WPAC. “Our work around safety never ends; we are constantly striving for new ways to improve safety whether it be the equipment we use or the processes that support good, safe decision making.” Start the series today! You can find out more here. Immediately following each webinar, there will be a quiz that participants will need to successfully answer in order to pass the webinar and be issued a certificate. Those who successfully pass the six webinars, will be issued a certificate for the Safety Foundation Course.
Each webinar is one hour and open to everyone including operating personnel at every level of the pellet plant, supervisors, senior management, control operators, other industry participants, equipment suppliers, and safety professionals. We encourage you to share the news about this new webinar series with your colleagues across industry.
