Title: IUPAC-UNESCO-UNIDO Safety
Training Program 2004-2008
Chairman: Mark C.
Oyebamiji Babalola, I.O.
Bakare, and Yukihiko
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
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.
