Casella continue extensive OSH training schedule
Company providing free webinars on dust monitoring and vapour sampling during June and July
FROM 2005 to the present, the number of employees working remotely has increased by 159%, more than 11 times faster than the size the workforce as a whole has increased. With demand for flexible work practices on the rise, resources to meet this demand are becoming more valuable and, given the ongoing global health situation, a necessity for many.
Casella, specialists in dust-monitoring and vapour-sampling solutions, have long been committed to providing accessible training across their areas of core competency in the form of one-day introductory courses and on-site product training, but this year, they have expanded this commitment to offer remotely accessible, free webinars on subjects including workplace monitoring for dust, gas and vapour hazards, as well as instrumentation usage and best practice, and introductory sessions on occupational health topics.
Throughout June and July, Casella will be offering the following free webinars:
18 June: Introduction to Personal Dust Monitoring
Covering the multiple different facets of employing air-sampling pumps to monitor dust, this session will cover aspects including: types of dust requiring measurement; equipment selection; calculation of airborne concentration; and, most importantly, calculation of exposure. As with all Casella webinars, a Q&A session will be held at the end as required.
23 June: Setting up Air Sampling Pumps
Accurate monitoring procedures for workplace dust hazards are vital to maintaining worker health, and this is achieved through correct use of air-sampling equipment. This webinar covers selecting correct sampling pumps, setting up a ‘sample train’ to ensure accurate flow, and best practice for capturing quality data.
16 July: Introduction to Personal Sampling of Vapours and Gases
Accurate logging of workplace exposure to vapours and gases is a key part of maintaining high occupational health standards and a solid grounding in the principles is essential training for workplace safety managers. This course covers selecting correct air-sampling pumps and media, equipment calibration, and selecting correct flow rate.
‘We’ve worked to ensure that our webinars enable participants to gain substantial knowledge and confidence in each topic and a broad understanding of equipment, controls and best practices,’ said global marketing manager Tim Turney.
‘At Casella, we’re dedicated to reducing occupational and environmental health risks through effective monitoring solutions. Our continuing innovation and training support ensures the next generation have the latest technology and expertise in occupational and environmental risk measurement.’
The full schedule of 2020 webinars is available on the Casella website and registration is free. To find out more or to book a place, visit: www.casellasolutions.com
