Global Chemical Safety and Sustainability
1 August 2011, San Juan, Puerto Rico

The IUPAC 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 Safety Training 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.

A workshop about the Safety Training Program will take place at the 43rd IUPAC Congress under the theme “Industrial and Applied Chemistry.” Similar workshops have been held at previous IUPAC General Assemblies and Congresses: Ottawa in 2003, Beijing in 2005, Turin in 2007, and Glasgow in 2009.

Each trainee participant will submit an abstract for a paper to be presented at the workshop; these abstracts will be critically reviewed in advance of acceptance of trainees’ applications for the workshop. The critical review is intended to assure that the trainees have made tangible progress on disseminating safety training knowledge in their home countries. 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 be part of a symposium on chemical safety, and contributed papers in the area of chemical safety, health, and environmental protection will be accepted.

The proceedings and outcomes of the workshop will be available on the IUPAC project webpage. The workshop will include a discussion about improving and expanding the scope of the Safety Training Program.
