Environment and Safety Course Certification

The Environment and Safety Certificate will be issued to the person who is acknowledged to have understood the basics of environment and safety as a UTokyo member, the basics of experimental safety and laboratory safety management as a experimental researcher, the handling of chemicals as a chemical user, and the handling of wastes. To get the certificate, either of (1)+(2)+(3) or (1)+(2)+(4) is required to be completed.

(1) Attend the Environment and Safety Course
(2) Pass the test given in the Environment and Safety Course
– when failed, you need to take re-test.

The treatment of laboratory wastes containing chemically hazardous substances in UTokyo is all managed by Environmental Science Center (ESC). Since April 2002, only the certificate holders can request the disposal of laboratory wastes to ESC. Because the regulations and rules on environment and safety change with time, the certificate expires in 3 years. You need to update the certificate once it is expired.
