Workshop “Exposure Assessment of Hazardous Chemicals in the Work Environment”
Nowadays, Safety and Health at Work (In Indonesia, it is commonly called K-3) aspects in industry become really important, considering the strict K-3 regulations and the demand from stakeholders. To increase public awareness upon K-3, Chemical Engineering Department Ubaya in collaboration with Consultation & Communication Forum (FKK) Ubaya and Industox Consult-Netherlands have organized seminar and workshop on “Exposure Assessment of Hazardous Chemicals in the Work Environment” held on 12 and 13 March 2009 at Faculty of Engineering Multipurpose Hall and Chemical Engineering Department Modeling Lab.


Workshop: Exposure Assessment of Hazardous Chemicals in The Work Environment


More than 100 people from various industries and Ubaya students participated on the seminar delivered by Joost van Rooij, Ph.D. and Dan Huizer, M.Sc. from Industox Consult. At the seminar that was opened and closed by Ubaya Vice Rector I, Prof.. Ir.
