Recession Holds Back Essential Training and Food and Drink Industries


York, United Kingdom, November 28, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Ken Robinson Associates, the food industry hygiene and safety training video producer, has launched a new training system which helps companies to streamline off-the-shelf training video clips with their own custom systems and processes. This cost-effective video training system is designed to keep employees fully up-to-date with the latest food industry safety legislation, amid fears that the recession will lead to a lowering of food hygiene standards.

Explains Ken Robinson, “Good progress has been made in bringing injury rates in the sector down and to achieving better housekeeping, but the recession is beginning to challenge that with health and safety training practitioners coming under huge pressure thanks to a reduction in resources in many sectors, including the food industry. For years we have produced video training products for many of the UK’s leading food manufacturers but as the recession has taken hold, firms have been struggling to even implement best practice in using video to meet the regulatory health and safety training requirements.

“It became essential to help health and safety practitioners to move things forwards by providing a simpler and more effective way to organise their video training – so by part-producing the common health and safety features which every food company needs and then combining their own health and safety processing and handling training elements to create the full package we believe we are facilitating progress in this important area.”

“The advantage of using video to provide food industry safety training is that it provides a clear and consistent message meeting requirements, reducing the burden on staff. Our expertise in the food sector means that we can very rapidly, script, edit and distribute effective training on DVD reducing the company’s own liabilities and exposure in a matter of a few weeks.”
