Process Change: Making Hand Sanitizer Safely

May 19th, 2020 9:30-10:30AM

This webinar is about hand sanitizer. It’s also about safely managing process change in your plant.

In recent months, BC’s distilleries, craft breweries, and wineries have responded to shortages in our hospitals, medical facilities, and essential production plants—shifting production from liquor, wine, and beer to hand sanitizer.

In many ways, they are ideally set up to make that change. But understanding the new hazards present in manufacturing a new product such as hand sanitizer—and implementing the right process changes to make the shift safely—is critical.

In this webinar you will learn

  • A systematic approach to identify hazards, quantify risks, and develop controls
  • How to use a change management decision tree to identify concerns and ensure workers and assets are protected
  • And if you’re making hand sanitizer—or considering it—learn what you need to know to avoid the risk of explosion, injury, or even death.
