THE British Plastics Federation has announced the launch of more free webinars covering a range of topics pertinent to the sector.
On May 13, David Butler, head of general manufacturing at the Health and Safety Executive, will explain how the manufacturing sector can operate safely during the Covid-19 crisis. He will explore topics including RIDDOR reporting changes, PPE and how to social distance while working.
Two days later, Peter Haslop from BPF Energy will explore the Climate Change Agreement Scheme as it reopens for plastic processors. He will discuss CCA, a voluntary agreement that includes targets to increase energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions.
On May 19, professor Anand Menon from King’s College London will look at the potential impact Covid-19 will have on the Brexit process. He will examine whether the pandemic changes priorities and whether it makes a delay to the process or a deal with the EU more likely.
On June 10, professor Janet Godsell from Warwick Manufacturing Group will give a presentation on on how we can build more resilient manufacturing supply chains. She will examine what the UK should manufacture, the infrastructure required and how we can build a ‘bedrock’ of skills.
