Safety Training Program—Call for Applicants

Making the world a bit safer, safety experts from developing countries have an opportunity to visit and work in plants of IUPAC
Company Associates in the industrialized world for a training period of one to three weeks.

The IUPAC-UNESCO-UNIDO Safety Training Program is a Fellowship Program for Safety and Environmental Protection in Chemical, Biotechnological, and Pharmaceutical Production that allows safety experts from developing countries to learn about safety and environmental protective measures by visiting and
working in plants of IUPAC Company Associates in industrialized countries. IUPAC, working with the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the United Nations International Development Organization (UNIDO), has 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. Each scientist or engineer accepted into the Safety Training Program is assigned to an IUPAC Company Associate in an industrialized country. Accommodation, subsistence, and travel expenses are provided for all trainees.

2003 fellows Jane B. Nyakang’o (UNIDO Kenya National Cleaner Production Centre) and Ana Luisa Arocena (CEMPRE Uruguay) seriously enjoying their visit of the BP Chemicals Technology Center in Naperville, Illinois, USA.

Successful candidates are professional scientists and engineers who are currently:
• involved at a supervisory or managerial level in chemical companies, government institutions, or scientific institutions
• engaged in aspects of safety and environmental protection in chemical, pharmaceutical, or biotechnological production or in the teaching of these fields
• have the ability to influence safety practices in their places of employment and elsewhere within their home country

Applications are now invited for placement in the 2006 program. For more information, go to
