The delegate lives in a country which is in a state of lockdown and all the training centers are closed. The delegate needs to provide OPITO with evidence of this. OR: 2. The delegate need to stay in quarantine. This also needs to be proved with evidence by the delegate. All information can be found on the following link: OPITO dispentsation GWO GWO has a 60 days flexibility period for refreshing existing training.

Vopak increases terminal safety with customised Field Supervisor Training

Posted by Delta Safety on 1 september 2020 12:45:58 CEST
The adoption of safe working practices has the highest priority for many organisations working within the petrochemical and other industries. The same also applies to Vopak. The situations that occur at a terminal are often complex, so there is not always an existing solution to make employees aware of the possible dangers. This gave rise to the need for Vopak to provide Field Supervisors with even better training and with the necessary substantive knowledge and communication skills to properly direct contractors. Vopak has developed a customised training course in collaboration with DELTA Safety Training, which meets this need exactly and helps to increase safety at the terminals. In this article, we interview Irma van IJperen, Division Training Coordinator at Vopak, and she tells us all about how the customised Field Supervisor Training came to fruition.
