We are pleased to inform you that one day training program on “ Safety in Chemical Industry” will now be held will be held on Saturday 25th April 2015 at Country-Inn & Suites, Panjim Goa. The program will be of one day duration.
As you will agree with us that India is one of the fast developing industrialized countries. Industries are an important sector of Indian economy. Apart from a significant contributor to GNP and Exports of the country, it also provides job opportunities to lakhs of workers. Over the years industrial Accidents in the Industry have affected many workers and their family members, who have suffered due to injuries or loss of life of their dear ones. Though the awareness of safety is increasing,, it is still not moving at the desired pace.
Chemicals have become an indispensable part of human life, sustaining activities and development, preventing and controlling many diseases, and increasing agricultural productivity. Despite their benefits, chemicals may, especially when misused, cause adverse effects on human health and environmental integrity. Widespread application of chemicals throughout the world increases the potential of adverse effects. Growth of chemical industries, both in developing and in developed countries, is predicted to increase. In this context, it is recognized that the assessment and management of risks from exposure to chemicals is among the highest priorities in pursuing the principles of sustainable development.
It is time that we deliberate on safety in chemical industries in transitional economies because as new industries develop, existing industries expand, and new technology is introduced, the environment is increasingly placed at risk and hazards to human arise.
We sincerely request you to participate or nominate at least one delegate for the said progrmme.
Those who had registered earlier nee not register again.
