Since its launch at a seminar at the end of 1998, the Federation of Bakers' breathe easy training video has proved to be popular not only among federation members but also among other sectors of the UK baking industry and also abroad. Orders for the video have been coming in from continental Europe, Ireland and as far afield as the USA and Australia.

breathe easy provides a comprehensive training package on identifying hazards and establishing effective controls for dusty processes. Its aim is to help the food-processing industries reduce flour dust exposure by giving guidance on common-sense practice and the correct use of controls and equipment. The training package is applicable to all sectors of the baking industry and is also relevant to major retailers with in-store bakeries, pizza and pasta manufacturers, hotels, caterers, ingredients suppliers and enforcement authorities.

Anne Linehan, executive director of the Federation of Bakers, said:

We are delighted that so many people in the industry recognise the importance of proper staff training in reducing the health risks associated with exposure to flour dust. We have deliberately kept the price of the training package low to make it affordable for even the smallest craft bakery or confectioner.

Copies of the breathe easy training package can be obtained from the Federation of Bakers, 6 Catherine Street, London WC2B 5JW, UK. Price £46.86 including postage and packaging.
