DuPont offers additional safety training webinars

Webinars can help ensure ongoing professional development at a time when in-person training might not be readily available

DuPont is extending its webinar series, 15' Safety Connect, and DuPont Personal Protection Webinar Academy, with additional sessions this autumn. Both streams offer safety managers a way to build their knowledge of how to reduce health and safety risks using PPE.

“Companies are currently facing new challenges. For example, many are feeling a strain on their resources when it comes to providing training,” says Chloé Caux-Wetherell, Channel Marketing Manager for DuPont in Europe. “We developed these webinars to ensure that safety managers across industries have access to the latest knowledge so that they can continue to build their expertise and better protect their workforce in all situations.”

The 15-minute Safety Connect webinars are held bi-weekly and cover one topic. This Autumn's sessions will cover topics such as hazards associated with counterfeit chemical protective garments and how to identify genuine products. Other upcoming topics include thermal protection standards, risks and protective solutions for the Oil & Gas industry, and risk assessment in light of the annex 1 for cleanroom application.

Each presentation is pre-recorded, but attendees will have a chance to connect with DuPont representatives and ask questions. They don’t require pre-registration and can be accessed on-demand directly via a link found on DuPont’s website here.

DuPont also presents more in-depth live tutorials once per month as part of its Webinar Academy. In the 45 minute sessions, DuPont’s experts discuss a current safety topic and share advice on how to identify and address the risks. Each webinar also features a Q&A, where participants can get advice for their safety challenges and have their questions answered live. In the coming months, some of these webinars will be hosted in multiple languages.
