AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, with the sponsorship of Michigan City Paper Box, now has Fundamentos de Seguridad (Safety Basics), a new free online course, available in Spanish.

Fundamentos de Seguridad provides employees with the knowledge and skills required to safely perform their assigned duties, recognize potential hazards and avoid them. Topics covered include: job safety analysis, personal protective equipment, ergonomic injury avoidance, housekeeping, utility safety, machine safety, forklift safety, dust collection, chemical safety, and fire and tool safety.

“The Safety Basics course is an integral part of our onboarding process. All new hires take the course on their first day. This has helped stress the importance of safety in our plant and to improve our safety record,” said Al Hoodwin, President, Michigan City Paper Box Co. “Since we have many Spanish speaking employees, we knew it was critical to have the Safety Basics course translated into the correct dialect of Spanish, using consistent terms in this course and throughout AICC’s curricula of Spanish translated courses. We were very happy to help support this translation, and we look forward to other AICC Members stepping forward to help in these efforts.”

With more than 50 free courses currently online, and four currently translated into Spanish with more on the way, AICC is the leading educator for independent corrugated, folding carton, and rigid box converters. In addition to free bi-lingual online training, AICC also offers classroom seminars and webinars, each uniquely designed to meet the needs of a rapidly changing industry.

More information about the free online education available to all AICC members can be found at www.aiccbox.org/packagingschool. Questions about free online education, seminars or webinars, and the value a well-trained workforce brings to a company can be directed to Taryn Pyle, Director of Education & Leadership Development, tpyle@aiccbox.org or 703.535.1391.
