Auto Windscreens completes REACH training

Auto Windscreens has announced that all appropriate colleagues having now undertaken Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) training for its use of polyurethane.

Urethane used in the windscreen replacement process contains diisocyanates, and REACH training is required under EU regulations to improve protection of employees and the environment and ensure it is handled safely.

Auto Windscreens has been working alongside its urethane provider, Dupont, to undertake the training with ISOPA, the European trade association for producers of diisocyanates and polyols, the main building blocks of polyurethanes.

Sean Draycott, Auto Windscreens’ operations director, said: “We take the health and safety of our team extremely seriously. We’re delighted that all colleagues who use urethane or its packaging in our business, including technicians, apprentices, area managers, supervisors, trainers and the stock team have completed this training. As well as the correct use of chemicals, it also covers disposal of chemicals and PPE usage.”
