Plant Operator and Management Training – North West

Treatment operations today are tightly controlled by various occupational and environmental legislation, and its essential that plant operators understand their legal responsibilities.


Date: Tuesday 8 October 2024

Location: Novotel, Worsley


Process permits for individual sites under the terms of the Environmental Permitting Regulations, or third party quality assurance schemes, often require companies to demonstrate that suitable and up to date training has been given to operators.

And it’s not just the legality of the operation that must be considered but also its operational efficiency which dictates the running costs of the treatment business.

For 30+ years, Koppers has provided thorough plant operator and management training as a critical part of its customer support package.
