Allan Webb Celebrates Reserves Day & Continues To Support Serving Employees

By

The 27th June marks Armed Forces Day, a chance to show support for our forces and all the work they do. Ahead of that, on Wednesday 24th June, is Reserves Day, celebrating the work and dedication of those who serve in the armed forces in their spare time.

Allan Webb Ltd has regularly given support to Army Reservist Staff Sgt. Darren Iles of Royal Wessex Yeomanry. He has worked for Allan Webb Ltd for 12 years and has been in the Army Reserve for 22 years. The skills he has gained in the Reserves have proved very useful, and he will shortly be sent to Indonesia as part of a large team to help deliver a key contract and train the first batch of Indonesian codifiers.

Making up approximately a sixth of the Armed forces, the Reserve Forces are essential to our nation’s security, both at home and overseas. Reservists are currently supporting operations worldwide, in Afghanistan, Northern Iraq, Cyprus, Bosnia and Herzegovina and as part of the UK’s effort to counter Ebola in Sierra Leone.

For Reserves Day, Reservists wear their uniform in their civilian life.

“Allan Webb is proud to support our forces,” explained Steve Rigsby, Managing Director of Allan Webb. “We know how important our armed forces are, so we make every effort to support the Reservists working in our organisation. Having a Reservist in uniform working amongst us brings home the importance of some of the work we do and puts a face to the people we’re working for.”

Packed for the journey

By

The UK MoD Packaging Authority requires that all companies who design, supply and pack material entering the Joint Supply Chain (JSC) do so to an acceptable standard. The Military Packagers Approval Scheme (MPAS) is designed to ensure that standard.

Introduced in June 2012 and based on Def. Stan 81-41 Pt 1-6, any companies who supply material to the UK MOD must ensure their packaging complies with MPAS standards. The scheme is audited as part of a company’s ISO 9001 certification. Only MPAS Certified Designers can submit a Special Packaging Instruction Sheet (SPIS) design to be used within the JSC.

To achieve MPAS certification, a comprehensive training programme must be undertaken. The training consists of two courses:

Practitioner

A series of Computer Based Training Modules providing a base knowledge of Def. Stan 81-41 and the SPIS design process.

Expert

A four day bespoke or in-house classroom based course that measures the delegate’s ability to design a SPIS for a variety of items in accordance with Def. Stan 81-41.

On completion of both Practitioner and Expert, a portfolio of work is presented to the UK MOD Packaging Authority for consideration of an MPAS certificate award.

Allan Webb Ltd is the approved UK MOD Provider for MPAS Certification Training. For more details or to book a course, log on to:
