Help define how loss prevention information can be delivered or modified for your operations to match your work practices and advancing technology. The TT Club, together with ICHCA International, invite you to complete a quick four question survey. Your feedback will greatly help us develop loss prevention solutions in 2014 that better support sound operational decisions and augment on-going training.
The TT Club has collaborated with ICHCA International in the production of a series of cards designed as quick reference ‘good practice’ guides for operational staff. The pocket sized durable cards provide summary information to support those carrying out workplace duties safely and consistently in accordance with acknowledged good practice, and are supplied with information concerning the main related risks. These cards can also support training initiatives, whether e-learning (such as Exis Technologies IMDG e-learning ) or classroom based.
The series was initiated with two cards covering the ‘IMDG Code Requirements’, which are consequently amended every two years to maintain alignment with IMDG Code updates. In addition, the cards currently in publication include ‘Entry into Enclosed Spaces’ (both containers and on ships) and ‘Safe Slinging’. If you are unfamiliar with the style or content of these, they are available here. Other topics, such as ‘CTU Packing’, ‘Security Awareness’ and ‘Checking Container Seals’ are in preparation by ISP ICHCA’s Technical Panel.
In addition to supporting worker decision-making, the guides have been widely used in training and 'tool box' talks. Clearly, to achieve these differing purposes, the production of the information needs to be flexible enough to fit a number of operational environments, including accommodating both management cultural requirements and actual worker practices.
In order for these guides to continue to meet the objectives of the industry, the TT Club and ICHCA International invite you to complete the following short survey.
