Training

‘Safety, Health and Hygiene' is the first module in nabim's distance learning programme, and is studied by the vast majority of mill employees early in their careers.

Each year, nabim runs at least one H&S seminar for the industry, attended by some 50-70 delegates from managerial and supervisory levels within the industry, as well as others with specific interests in health and safety; these may be general in focus or concentrate on specific topics. Over the last two years, workshops have discussed subjects including: behavioural safety, fire and dust explosions, workplace transport, safe deliveries, working at height, lone working, confined spaces, rescue plans, noise and vibration and risk management.
