Training

Skills development plays a major role in employment, both in terms of quantity and quality. With the growing pace of technological change, the need for specialized technical skills has become ever more pressing. The skills required to be employed in modern leather and leather products manufacturing are changing, as well as the institutional structure around them. In the past, employability was correlated with improvements in basic education levels. In the emerging competitive setting, there is a greater emphasis on specialized high-level training.

 UNIDO has demonstrated its commitment to professional training. The majority of its  technical assistance projects include study tours, fellowships and group training activities. Moreover, the majority of UNIDO’s interventions in the leather sector involve establishing, upgrading or assisting institutions and trade associations that provide professional education and/or training.

 Employment generation is an important aspect of any industrialization agenda. Both developed and developing countries are calling for policies that promote skills development.

 Innovation, fostered in part by a highly trained and skilled work force, is fundamental to sustained economic growth. Documents and papers related to training and learning prepared by UNIDO are available in this section.

The course Introduction to Leather Testing is designed for training institutions, private companies and individuals that require understanding of both the theory and application of a wide array of standard test methods in utilize in the leather industry. The course is recommended to be used in a blend of classroom instruction using training content or self-learning along with allocation of time for hands on application in the laboratory. All courses provide opportunity for continuous professional development and lifelong learning.

The Course is divided into five modules:

M1: Fundamentals in Material Testing

M2: Basics in Leather Testing

M3: Physical Testing

M4: Fastness Testing

M5: Chemical Testing

 

Content was developed and prepared as a joint effort between UNIDO, FILK Freiberg Institute and Common Sense. Dr. S. Dietrich will guide you through the course. The course is offered free of charge and a certificate issued upon successful completion of the course.

The course will be available also in additional languages. The course was developed thanks to a generous support from the Government of Japan.

"SAFE Leather" must mean safe for operators and workers, as well as safe for consumers and communities. Company management must ensure that the workplace provides workers and anyone else attending the workplace with access to appropriate first aid equipment. Management must also ensure that the workers have access to an adequate number of persons who have been trained to administer first aid.

First Aid course/training should be mandatory for all emplyees. 

First Aid course Modules
Module 1: First Aid Kit - content
Module 2: First Aid Dealing with Heart Attack
Module 3: First Aid Dealing with Burns
Module 4: First Aid Dealing with Accidents Involving Chemicals
Module 5: First Aid Dealing with Contusions
Module 6: First Aid Dealing with Eye Injuries
Module 7: First Aid Dealing with Severe Bleeding
Module 8: First Aid Dealing with Eelectricity

UNIDO on-line learning How to deal with hydrogen sulphide gas

Confronted with increasing legal and social pressures, no tanner can afford the luxury of not being familiar with the main issues and principles of occupational, safety and health protection pertaining to tannery operations.

Hydrogen sulphide gas present in tanneries and effluent treatment plants has proven fatal to workers exposed to it many times.

See also Safety Video - How to deal with hydrogen sulhide gas

It is therefore necessary that the owners and managers of tanneries and effluent treatment plants are fully aware of the dangers posed by this poisonous gas and take all preventive and precautionary measures to protect the workforce from exposure to this gas. In the event of accidental exposure of a worker, they should know how to deal with the situation.

The lessons that follow are to help tanners, tannery managers and operators to acquaint themselves with the basic principles How to deal with hydrogen sulphide gas.

The on-line course developed by UNIDO including test provides an opportunity for the proper training within tanneries related to danger associated with hydrogen sulphide gas. After finishing the test with minimum score 80%, participants will receive the certificate and will be able to download it.

Recommendations and preventive measures in response to COVID-19: Guidance for the industrial sector

This tool provides guidance to employers, workers and their representatives on preventive measures for a safe return to work in the context of COVID-19, conforming to well established principles and methods on occupational safety and health risk management.

There are many other useful guidelines and recommendations available.

Leather industry expert Richard Daniels In association with IULTCS, SLTC and the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (Unido), has released an extensive guide to leather manufacturing.

The 10-part guide, which contains insight on leathermaking, was created to give aspiring leather technicians a self-training resource for the procedures used in making a wide variety of leathers. It includes 300 technical diagrams.

The study is optimised for mobile or tablet viewing and covers the raw material properties, manufacturing procedures and outcomes, and production of major leather types including:

Bovine hides
Hair sheep and goatskins
Wool-bearing sheepskins.

You can find the full guide in 10 parts (plus summary) below. The full guide was presented during the XXXVI IULTCS Congress in Ethiopia in November 2021.

The objective of the study e-Learning in the leather based industries is to analyze the the use of modern (non-traditional, beyond the textbook and classroom based) training methods and related tools. Special attention is paid to the new UNIDO effort in building a library of electronic training materials for the leather, footwear and other leather products industries. As the first attempt the footwear pattern engineering training kit transferred into e-Learning tools are presented in order to demonstrate capabilities and the potential of this technology. Paper presented during the 18th UNIDO Leather Panel in Shanghai/China September/2012

The objective of the study is to analyze the actual, fairly contradiction situation caused by economic changes in the past 3-5 decades, to review the most pressing problems – especially from developing countries point of view (where the bulk of leather processing and leather products manufacturing takes place presently) and to recommend principles and directions for [internationally] coordinated development in this field. Paper prepared and presented by Mr. F. Schmel during the 17th UNIDO Leather Panel Meeting in Addis Ababa/Ethiopia (January 2010)

Paper was prepared based on visits to some major footwear and leather training establishments in Europe and their training systems, methodology and syllabi . Information on professional education and training were collected from several other countries (e.g. Brasil, Hungary, South Africa). Experience gained through previous UNIDO assistance with regards human resource development was also considered. Outline proposals were prepared for discussion by the 13th UNIDO Leather Panel in Bologna in November 1997. A five stage structure was proposed which would allow trainees in any country to progress against known standards to the benefit of their company and themselves.

Paper presented during the 12th UNIDO Leather and Leather Products panel 1995 provides an overview about the professional training. Conclusion is that, there is no reason for having different training programmes in industrialized and developing countries, so the creation of a uniform syllabus for the leather, footwear and other leather products is not only an opportunity but also a necessity - not to mention the financial rationale (economic scale of printing text books, producing illustration materials and training software).
