BCGA Shares ‘Invisible Industry’ Expertise With Food and Drink Processing Industry

BCGA Shares ‘Invisible Industry’ Expertise With Food and Drink Processing Industry

The food and drink industry can now access a range of guidance following moves by national trade body The British Compressed Gases Association (BCGA) to increase awareness and reinforce safety standards.

The UK membership body has now made its extensive catalogue of information available for free download under the ‘publications’ tab on the BCGA website www.bcga.co.uk

Previously a charge was made to access much of the guidance, which includes codes of practice, guidance notes, technical reports and technical information sheets. Leaflets, safety alerts and industry information can also be found in this area of the website.

The move is part of an ongoing drive by the BCGA to increase awareness of compressed gases and share industry best practice.

The BCGA website includes a wide range of information relating to the food and drink processing sector.

Doug Thornton, Chief Executive of the BCGA, says: “The compressed gases sector is the UK’s ‘invisible industry,’ with food and drink gases, as well as industrial and medical gases, playing a critical role in many aspects of life, underpinning a safe, successful and healthy nation. Members of BCGA operate in a highly-regulated industry and work together on technical, safety, health and environmental issues to achieve high standards of integrity and environmental care, both within their own and customers’ working environments.”

He adds: “As a result of this approach, over the years we’ve built up a wide-range of information that is useful to those with responsibility for food and drink environments and is regularly updated. BCGA’s mission is to ensure safety in the use, storage, transportation and handling of compressed gases. Our respected publications are key to that and significant resources are deployed to bring each of our publications together. By making access to all this information easier than ever we are taking a significant step in sharing the thought leadership, expertise and knowledge of BCGA in handling and influencing safety.”

As well as its publications, BCGA also actively promotes safety practice through its participation in the preparation and revision of National, European and International Standards. For further information visit www.bcga.co.uk.
