Come and ‘run the risk’ at easyFairs® MAINTEC 2011
The importance of health and safety cannot be overstated and with many high profile stories making headlines, easyFairs® MAINTEC 2011 has teamed up with leading health and safety training provider, RRC to provide ‘state of the art’ training. The computerised - Stop the Hazard Game - will be launched at Birmingham’s NEC on the 29 - 31 March 2011.
RRC hope to show that accidents have risen because people on the ground don’t understand how to assess risk. Poor health and safety leads to accidents and significant costs to any business. This is the perfect opportunity to brush up on health and safety skills for all those working in the Logistics, Distribution and Supply-chain functions through to Operations, Plant and Production managers.
Gary Fallaize, Managing Director at RRC Training comments: “Just recently a Warwickshire firm was fined a total of £4,000 and ordered to pay £2,500 in costs, after admitting failure to provide training and a safe system of work for unloading lorries after a worker suffered crushed injuries.”
The computerised Stop the Hazard Game is all about spotting the hazard before it is too late. The interactive training will be displayed on a large computerised plasma screen where individuals will have the opportunity to complete certain activities and find the deliberate hazards.
David Towlson, Director of Training at RRC, explains: “Participants will be able to drill down on various ‘hotspots’ where they will see a mix of animation or still illustrations showing various hazards. Delegates will then click on what they think are the hazards and get points for those correctly spotted - missed ones will also be highlighted. There will be a ‘top-gear’ style leader-board, and the delegate with the top score on each day will win their company £500 worth of RRC Training.”
David continues: “Employers have both a moral and a legal obligation to ensure that their employees work in both a safe and healthy environment. So, to accompany the game, we are also running a straightforward short training course on material handling – fantastic for anyone who wants to brush up on their skills.”
RRC training will also be giving visitors free single-user access for 2 months to their training website. Plus they will be handing out cards with login details with an offer of a £10 purchase, valid for three months, and a 20% time limited show offer on any other RRC courses, including In-company training and bespoke developments.
