Litera Meat, May 2020
The Official Gazette of Aragón has recently published a resolution by which the General Directorate for Public Health of the Government of Aragón has designated Litera Meat an official training entity authorised to teach hygiene and sanitary maintenance of high-risk installations to prevent Legionella, a specialised course targeted at workers or unemployed people of the industrial sector, as well as at everyone interested in this activity.
Specialists from Litera Meat’s Quality & Food Safety Department will be in charge of developing the educational programme, lecturing on existing legislation and regulations on the subject, as well as general and specific contents related to the importance of good sanitary conditions in preventing legionellosis. The different topics will be taught using an interactive teaching method, encouraging the participation of students and teamwork. Cristina López, head of the training area of Litera Meat, points out the importance of adopting an active methodology in which the trainees can take part, “achieving a better academic performance and gaining a positive and satisfactory experience in the classroom.” The 25-hour course will be completed after having done the corresponding field training phase and taken a following exam to validate the acquisition of knowledge and skills. Trainees who finish the course and pass the exam will receive a certification card issued by the Ministry of Health.
Promoting professional growth and human capital development is one of the aims of Litera Meat’s Training Centre, to which external personnel interested in expanding their knowledge is also allowed. The exceptional situation stemming from COVID-19 has interrupted most of the training courses, which will be resumed soon. Despite this, Litera Meat’s Training Centre has continued its educational work by carrying out informative one-day courses on COVID-19 targeted at all its personnel.
