Challenge: Annual Employee GMP Compliance Training in Distribution Companies
Background: Biopharma Institute helps pharmaceutical, clinical research, and medical device organizations reinforce the importance for sustaining compliance. This is achieved through employee awareness training, instructing the workers on how to be compliant, and describing why these federally mandated compliance rules must be followed. It is all about product safety.
Whether manufacturing food, cosmetics, medical devices, or pharmaceuticals, companies making these products are responsible for the safety of their consumers. If these rules are routinely reinforced upon employees through effective and documented training, and compliance is consistently followed, the company is demonstrating high performance in what is essential to manufacture products which are reliable, of high-quality and safe to use.
Companies choosing Biopharma Institute to educate and reinforce the importance of maintaining compliance are demonstrating they have put a high priority on preserving their product’s quality. When a company’s employees have a documented certificate of training from Biopharma Institute, it is demonstrating that they are putting a great prominence on delivering current and effective training to their workers.
Case Study: A distribution company which warehouses and delivers pharmaceuticals to drug stores nationwide is required to provide GMP training. The company has 200 current employees and needs to institute a training program for onboarding new employees; projected to be 10-20 per year. The pharmaceutical distributor did not have its own learning management system (LMS), but it did have a system in place which was used to document employee training records.
The pharmaceutical distributor elected to use Biopharma Institute’s On-Demand Training Manager Portal to easily provide training modules to employees and manage their training records.
The company decided to first use the cGMP: Warehouse for Pharmaceuticals (GMP02) course to training their 200 current and experienced employees. For on-boarding their new employees the company choose cGMP for Beginning Professionals (GMPBEGP), a program which includes two (2) courses for onboarding new employees and maintaining awareness for current employees, GMP: Introduction to Good Manufacturing Practices (ELM-722) and GMP: The Devastating Effects of Not Following cGMP (ELM-710).
In year two, the company decided on another course for their current and experienced employees. They chose GMP: Good Manufacturing Practices (ELM-103). Annually, this distributor delivers a different course to their seasoned workers to reinforce the importance of compliance and keep their employees up to date on the mandated compliance regulations.
Outcome: A cost-effective, easy-to-manage training program to provide continuous training for employees at various experience levels to remain complaint with mandated regulations. The company did not need to hire any additional staff to implement or manage their new training programs.
