Meeting Safety and Training Goals and Objectives:
Shephard's provide guidance and direction to assist clients to quickly and cost effectively meet and exceed expectations in safety and training goals and objectives.
We target our efforts to assist our clients by the development and implementation of assessments/safety audits for conditions, suggestions and or recommendations to improve, policy recommendations, safe job procedures, modifications, and training materials updates. These tools help our clients in the paper industry to solve some age-old problems and provide solutions for new innovations within their roll handling operations.
Training Courses for Paper Mills:
By developing training programs for Paper Mills, we quickly identified different training needs for the converting and packing industries
Paper Industry Advancements:
We found that our task was enormous. Why? Because of the rapid advancements and uniqueness within the paper industry, for example, paper grades, roll diameters, roll widths, equipment needs, lift trucks, roll clamp design and specification, storage procedures, shipping and handling requirements, safe job procedures, and more.
Similarities in the Paper Industries:
Yes, there are similarities in both industries. For example the need to:
Reduce: Paper damage, equipment abuse, hazards, incidents, etc.
Improve: safety, safety awareness, roll handling techniques, roll storage procedures, etc.
Although the industry was paper handling, the safety issues were different and obviously the solutions were different. The paper mill training materials did not match the needs of the converting and packaging operations. Therefore, the training programs developed for the paper mills would not adequately train the converting or packaging facilities.
To meet the Paper Roll handling training needs for the Paper Industry, Shephard's developed "The Paper Roll Clamp Operator Safety and Certification Basic Course," for the paper mills, and different training system for the converting and packaging facilities.
Shephard's offers our clients a complete material handling training system, not just a powered industrial equipment training program.
Shephard's proven material handling systems will help you identify safety issues in your roll handling operations, in addition to providing suggestions and solutions to existing material handling problems.
We did not forget that everyone within the paper industry does not operate paper roll clamp trucks. We also developed a specific Lift Truck Operator Safety and Certification Training Program for those operators working with lift trucks in and around the paper handling operations. This training system is designed to focus on your Site-Specific operations.
Setting Shephard's Systems Apart:
Shephard's unique training material development and implementation methods and concepts sets us, Shephard's Industrial Training Systems, Inc., apart from generic operator-training program.
