Visual Floor Safety

Factories, warehouses and other facilities can be dangerous places to work, which is why most companies spend a significant amount of effort on improving the safety.

Where does GMP Training end and HR training begin?

That pharmaceutical companies need to hire professionals with the requisite qualifications is beyond question. This is not only required for the smooth conduct of activities in their course of their day-to-day work, but also because the FDA has set out its requirements for the proper educational and skill set qualification of employees in this profession in 21 CFR 211.25(a).This FDA section underlines the need for educational qualifications, training and experience to carry out their job…See More
