Rocol makes 30 years of lubrication management expertise available to food manufacturers

16 May 2016

Food grade lubricants manufacturer ROCOL® is making it even easier for food manufacturing and processing teams to improve efficiency and reduce downtime across their production facilities by introducing online training to its ROCOLcare® lubrication management programme.

From this month, ROCOL is making the entire ROCOLcare training programme, developed over 30 years, available online to help maintenance engineers keep their lubrication management knowledge up to scratch without sacrificing valuable time on site. Marketing manager Joanne Ferguson says, “The in-depth lubrication training we offer at our UK headquarters and on customer sites as part of the ROCOLcare package continues to be extremely popular. Now we are making it accessible to even the most time-pressed maintenance teams, who can benefit from the training at a time to suit them without taking time off site.

“Offering the full training course online as a modular programme gives ROCOLcare customers complete flexibility. Engineers can still access the training face to face if they prefer, or they can choose to sign up to the online programme and complete it in bite-sized chunks to fit around shifts. Once they have completed the programme, they will receive official certification for their training or CPD file.”

Joanne says that the move online is designed to increase customer choice and help make sure that the ROCOLcare programme continues to meet very real needs: “We understand how important it is for food and drink manufacturers to balance the pressures of delivering production efficiencies whilst maintaining the highest standards of hygiene and safety required in the clean industries.

“Giving maintenance engineers and managers the flexibility to access industry-leading lubrication training at their convenience makes it easier for them to stay abreast of best practice without leaving the site. The training is easy and secure to access, and the modules can be readily broken down into manageable sections, with work saved ready to pick up again the next time the engineer logs in.”

As well as comprehensive training, ROCOLcare gives production teams full audit compliance for their lubrication system through a TPM-compatible food grade service package that is tailored to their needs. The ROCOLcare service helps achieve rationalised lubricant usage through an in-depth site survey and report detailing lubricant frequency and application methods for every piece of equipment on site and full technical support.

It also gives customers access to the full range of ROCOL ISO 21469 and NSF-H1 certified food grade lubricants, featuring patented DETEX® metal detectable caps and actuators to reduce the risk of foreign object contamination during the production process.
