The Wood Pellet Association of Canada’s latest 15-minute safety huddle webinar is about their new operator e-learning platform. On May 30, operators from across Canada joined the webinar “Master the New Operator Safety Training E-Learning Portal” to learn how the new platform works. If you missed this webinar, it can be viewed here.

The webinar was jointly presented by Kayleigh Rayner Brown, MASc., P.Eng., Obex Risk, and Fahimeh Yazdan Panah, Ph.D, P.Eng., WPAC’s director of research and technical development. The portal covers important topics such as combustible dust, human factors, hazard analysis and process safety management. It also includes videos, print resources and built-in knowledge assessments for plant operators and supervisors.

This is a joint Wood Pellet Association of Canada and BC Forest Safety Council initiative supported with input from subject matter experts and senior operators across Canada, and partially funded through a WorkSafeBC Small Initiatives Grant.

Gordon Murray is the executive director of the Wood Pellet Association of Canada.
