Staff Induction and Training
All new employees take part in an Induction which involves an introduction to the Company, the type of products it handles and the type of work they will be expected to undertake. The Induction introduces the concept of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and ensures that staff are aware of the Health and Safety at Work regulations.
The training consists of instruction in documentation completion and machine operation. After training, the staff are graded according to their abilities. With continuing training and experience, staff can graduate from Hand Packer to Machine Operator to Line Leader.
All training sessions are documented. A Line Leader is responsible for their area, which involves demonstrating what is required of staff and to ensure that operations proceed according to GMP guidelines.
