About the Event

When an institution applies for a certificate of authority to operate (CATO) to legitimize its chemical laboratory, stringent requirements are needed to be submitted. Among those documents that institutions must already possess is a chemical laboratory safety manual. This safety manual contains detailed instructions and procedures on how the institution’s employees, in particular its registered chemists and registered chemical technicians, can respond to any untoward incident that may occur inside the chemical laboratory. This safety manual must also contain the appropriate information regarding the safe handling of hazardous chemicals, a waste management plan, among others.

In this regard, the Integrated Chemists of the Philippines (ICP) Bacolod Chapter, in coordination with the ICP National Chapter, cordially invites everyone to a webinar-workshop on the Preparation of a Chemical Laboratory Safety Manual: A CATO Requirement. This will be on 19-20 May 2021 and will be livestreamed via Cisco Webex and Youtube Live.

Who Should Attend?

This webinar is highly recommended for registered chemists and registered chemical technicians who are directly involved in maintaining their respective chemical laboratory’s safety manual. As the safety manual is an integral component in the issuance of a Certificate of Authority to Operate (CATO) a chemical laboratory, your company’s supervisors, managers, and owners are also urged to attend this webinar.

Professionals such as chemical engineers, faculty and staff from academic institutions, and other individuals who wish to enrich themselves are more than welcome to attend.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
