Training Guidelines: Glass Furnace Operators.
Ceramics, Glass, and Mineral Products Industry Training Board, Harrow (England).
Technological development in the glass industry is constantly directed towards producing high quality glass at low operating costs. Particularly, changes have taken place in melting methods which mean that the modern furnace operator has greater responsibilities than any of his predecessors. The complexity of control systems, melting rates, tank capacities, and other technical factors demand that he be highly qualified. This manual of training guidelines was developed by a group of production managers, furnace engineers, and training specialists from the industry, in the belief that systematic training and development of furnace operators could make a significant contribution toward increased efficiency and productivity. Included as appendixes are a job description for the furnace operator, a job analysis with detailed breakdown of individual items, a personnel specification, and a list of suggested training aids and their sources.
