Works visit to Pelta Medical Papers, Beetham, Cumbria

June 27 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Hosted by:          Debbie Sumner, Health and Safety Manager, Pelta Medical Papers

Works visit:

We are privileged to have been offered the opportunity to visit Pelta Medical Papers, Beetham, Cumbria. They are specialist manufacturers of medical and barrier performance papers for food packaging. The medical papers comply with international sterile barrier system standards for medical and hospital packaging applications. They are suitable for sterilisation processes and provide an excellent microbial barrier for device protection. The specialist food-contact and barrier performance papers are suitable for a wide range of food packaging and technical applications.

The firm was originally established as Henry Cooke Papers, then traded as BillerudKorsnäs Beetham Ltd, (part of BillerudKorsnäs AB), before becoming an independent business in November 2021.

The visit will begin with an overview of the work activities on site and the site’s health and safety management systems – with an insight into particularly challenging safety problems and how they have been resolved. There will then be a site tour where members will be encouraged to use a safety observation sheet followed by time for reflection and discussion.
