Operator safety training for wood pellet manufacturers has officially risen to the next level. Safety training is now available anytime, anywhere – and it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 – thanks to a new online platform that delivers a free, comprehensive, digital e-learning, safety training program for plant operators and supervisors across companies. The Wood Pellet Association of Canada will host a short webinar, only 15 minutes, on May 30, 2023 at 10 A.M. PST  to demonstrate the platform’s ease and functionality. Developed by a team of safety specialists, WPAC and the BC Forest Safety Council, the online training system includes videos, industry resources and built-in knowledge assessments. Funding was provided by WorkSafe BC. Before launching the platform, the system was tested by pellet plant operators from British Columbia and Nova Scotia.
