Handling Chemicals and Chemical Processes

This will provide you with practical knowledge (including tips, tricks and tools) covering the fundamentals of chemistry, chemical and process engineering. It will greatly assist you in communicating more effectively with your chemical engineering colleagues. In industry, handling chemicals is considered a hazardous occupation. Chemical engineers are a trained set of specialists who have spent years in understanding the nature and behavior of chemicals and chemical process systems. If you are a non-chemical engineer we aim at bringing this knowledge to you in a two-day interactive workshop.
