An efficient, reliable boiler is an essential requirement for food and beverage businesses as the downtime caused by a failed boiler can have a major detrimental effect on production, plant and personnel.
Employers are required to ensure boilers are properly maintained and operated within safe limits. They are also required to ensure that employees are provided with adequate information and written instructions concerning conditions of use, safe operation, foreseeable abnormal situations, action to take in an emergency other conclusions which can be drawn from the experience of using the equipment.
In this context Red Pen was commissioned to develop several self-paced Boiler Operation and Maintenance courses which could be taken at the convenience of both employer and employee and as a resource to support traditional workshops and training courses.
The programme was designed to support existing Boiler Operation Accreditation Scheme (BOAS) courses by developing innovative e-learning programmes in line with their recommended training syllabus.
