Workplace Safety Training

The saying: “Safety in the Workplace is Everyone’s responsibility” is “spot-on” for many companies.  Delegates on the Workplace Safety training, which took place in April 2018, conducted by Technical Trainer, Marthinus Du Toit (standing 2nd from Right), were from Alplas Plastics, Allflex Packaging, Myplas and Plaslantic.

Basic Raw Materials training

  took place in April with delegates from Amcor Flexibles, Plaslantic, Sandplast Injection Moulding and UV Tooling under the watchful eye of  Technical Trainer, Andrew Murray. Basic Raw Materials is paramount for companies who need their workforce to understand the properties and uses of the plastic materials that they are working with.

Thank you

Thank you to Spicoly Plastics (frisbee and spoon & fork moulds) & Flexoline Products (hairslide mould)for supplying moulds for practical training at Plastics|SA Maitland premises. It is very important to have different moulds for practising mould changes, as it assists the learners to apply their practical skills in the workplace.
