Labor Offers Free Seafood Safety Training
JUNEAU, Alaska —The Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development is offering a free two-day seafood safety training for mid-management personnel in the processing industry.
The free Seafood Safety Training will be in Anchorage on Oct. 9 and 10 at the Midtown Job Center at 3301 Eagle Street. The two-day class from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. will include training on lock out/tag out, emergency action plans and personal protective equipment.
Safety consultants with the department’s Alaska Occupational Safety and Health section worked with Trident Seafoods to develop the 10-hour Seafood Safety Training Course to help prevent accidents in Alaska’s seafood processing industry, which typically has a high accident rate.
However, training and education to better understand workplace hazards, and how to prevent them, can help reduce injury and accident rates.
The training, which is for floor managers, line managers, maintenance staff and plant workers, has also been successfully offered in Dillingham, Sand Point and Kodiak.
