The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is set to run a half-day training course on ‘Packaging for Transport’ with Emeritus Professor Harry Lovell OAM, FAIP as the course presenter.
The Packaging for Transport training course will be held on Thursday the 22nd of July in Melbourne.
The half-day training course will centre on the protection of products when in transport from the producer to the consumer. The training course will look at the various systems of transportation in terms of the potential hazards and the protection to be afforded by packaging. The training course will also examine the question of fragility, its determination and its role in the selection of protective mechanisms.
Concerning the distribution chain, the training course will identify the hazards and those steps that are essential in order to offer adequate protection. It will look at methods of hazard assessment and how these can be addressed in practical terms. The different forms of transportation will be examined and the protection which is required and examples will be taken from a variety of products ranging from bulk containers to small unit packs.
On completion of the half day training course participants should be able to:
- Advise on recognised procedures associated with evaluating packaging for transportation
- Identify the hazards within various distribution systems and recommend appropriate methods of assessment
- Understand the basic technical requirements of packaging for transportation
Further information and booking forms are available from the Australian Institute of Packaging.
