Title: IUPAC-UNESCO-UNIDO Safety Training Program 2004-2008

Task Group
Mark C. Cesa

Members: Jonathan Oyebamiji Babalola, I.O. Bakare, and Yukihiko Suematsu

Remark: The IUPAC-UNESCO-UNIDO Safety Training Program is a on-going activity of COCI; for more details see <www.iupac.org/standing/coci/safety-program.html>

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 with the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the United Nations International Development Organization (UNIDO), have established and maintained the Safety Training Program to promote interactions between developed countries and the developing world 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 and safety.

This environment and safety training will be offered by Mitsui Chemicals Inc. of Japan. The session will take place in Mitusi facilities. The course will include lectures, discussions, demonstrations, practical exercise and visits to waste disposal plants.

In October 2004, Mr. Isiaka O. Bakare (Rubber Research Institute of Nigeria) visited Mitsui Chemicals Co. sites in Japan. [more]

In November 2005, Prof. Said Mohamed Mahmoud Bayomi (Mansoura University, Egypt) received training at the facilities of the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca in the UK. [more]

Plans are being made for three more trainees to visit Mitsui in June 2007.
