Paper mill employees conduct hazmat training at Catalyst

Catalyst Paper crews from Port Alberni, Crofton and Powell River conducted hazardous material and other crisis training last week.

Catalyst Paper’s Port Alberni plant was the site of quarterly emergency training exercises last week (May 24, 2013). From a chemical leak to an unconscious employee at a sulphuric acid leak, all sorts of scenarios were covered, general manager Fred Chinn said.

The quarterly training rotates between mills.
