Chemical substance management at Kumamoto University

Chemical substance management regulations and chemical substance handling requirements

Unlike industry, universities use a wide variety of chemicals in small quantities. Therefore, chemicals must be appropriately handled while considering potential hazards related to their storage, usage, and disposal.
At Kumamoto University in March 2009, we established the Kumamoto University Chemical Substance Management Regulations and the Kumamoto University Chemical Substance Handling Requirements to promote the proper management of chemical substances at our university.


At Kumamoto University, chemical substance management briefing sessions are held for leaders in charge of chemical substance management at the beginning of the academic year.
