From March 25 - 26, API's staff took part in an intense two-day First Aid, CPR and AED course conducted by the St John Ambulance Brigade, Barbados. At the end of the workshop, they were tested on both the practical and theoretical aspects of the programme and were issued with certificates, which are valid for three (3) years. API plans to do refresher courses yearly to ensure that the valuable information is not forgotten.

This was part of the Environmental Health and Safety training initiative rolled out by Management to ensure that all staff is trained on all aspects of Environmental, Health and Safety Management and kept abreast of new and emerging technologies.

Barbadian Company, Asphalt Processors Inc. (API) is pioneering a "Share the knowledge Project" with the French Caribbean Community.

According to Managing Director, Errol Lynch, the French Caribbean countries are strategic to the company's long term plan, to be the leading exporter of asphalt products in the region.

With this in mind API joined a trade mission to Martinique in November 2007 facilitated by the Barbados Coalition of Services Industries and the Martinique Chamber of Commerce, to seek opportunities for building relationships within the business community and for exporting asphalt products to the local road construction companies.

Recognizing the challenges of breaking into a well-established market and doing business in a non-English speaking environment, API, rather than using traditional market entry methods, instead opted to build alliances by creating opportunities for young professionals in Barbados and the French territories, through work exchange programs.

The first beneficiary of this exchange was Arnaud Grangenois of Fort-de-France, Martinique, an engineering student of the National Institute of Applied Science in Toulouse, France. Arnaud spent two months working at Asphalt Processors and C. O Williams Construction Co., a major player in regional road construction.

The French student commented that his internship in Barbados had truly enhanced his professional experience, as it related to the operation of a small refining company. He said the programme also allowed him to improve his English and make valuable contacts which will be a major asset in his future career.
