The Chemical Safety, Security and Waste management Training (15 - 17 December 2015) at the Technical university of Kenya

The Department of Chemical Science and Technology (DCST), will hold a Chemical Safety, Security and Waste Management Training for University Technicians from the 15 – 17 December 2015 at the Technical University of Kenya. The training aims at developing a culture of best practices in the management and application of chemicals. The culture of laboratory safety depends ultimately on the working habits of chemical technicians and technologists and their sense of teamwork for protection of themselves, their neighbors, and the wider community and the environment.

The objectives of this training are:

1. To raise awareness among university technicians of the issues of Chemical Security

2. To demonstrate technical expertise to technicians and technologists in universities on the best practices of chemical waste management (from cradle to grave)

3. To build critical mass in Kenya to raise awareness on pertinent issues related to CSS in Kenya and support the Chemical Management bill in Kenya

Registration fee is Ksh2000 (Only 25 places are available for this training). Lunch and tea will be provided for all participants during the training. A limited number of scholarships to cater for accommodation and transport are available for participants coming outside Nairobi.
