A Workshop on the IUPAC Safety Training Program will take place 12 August 2013, during the IUPAC General Assembly in Istanbul. The workshop is an opportunity to share with the IUPAC community the recent activities by fellows of the program in their home countries; to evaluate the effectiveness of the Safety Training Program in terms of fellows’ home country activities; to learn from invited speakers who are experts in health, safety, and environmental matters; and to solicit ideas for improvements in the program and for possible expansion to incorporate new host companies and new regional trainees. Similar workshops were held at the IUPAC GA/Congress in Ottawa in 2003, Beijing in 2005, Torino in 2007, Glasgow in 2009, and San Juan in 2011. This series has established itself as an important activity coordinated by the IUPAC Committee on Chemistry and Industry, COCI.
The Safety Training Program allows safety experts from developing countries to learn more about safety and environmental protective measures by visiting and working in plants of IUPAC Company Associates in the industrialized world. IUPAC administers the program to disseminate state-of-the-art knowledge on safety and environmental protection in chemical production. The beneficiaries are expected to use the training in their home countries to improve health, safety, and the environment.
Fellows of the IUPAC Safety Training Program who have been trained at host sites share written reports. A number of fellows will attend the workshop to present updates on actions taken since their training. In addition, the workshop will include lectures by regional speakers who are experts in chemical health, safety, and environmental protection issues particular to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. The workshop will include a discussion to identify ideas for improvement and expansion of the scope of the Safety Training Program.
