HSP and Ibb University Host Chemical Security Workshop in Yemen HSP and Ibb University Host Chemical Security Workshop in Yemen
From January 25-26, 2023, Health Security Partners (HSP) and Ibb University conducted a hybrid training workshop on chemical security and emergency management in Yemeni university laboratories in Hadramout and Seyoun, Yemen.
This workshop convened stakeholders from academia, including chemistry faculty and university leadership, to raise awareness on chemical security issues facing university labs in Yemen and discussed best practices to protect their institutions. This engagement built on previous virtual chemical security and safety training efforts and encouraged the development of standard operating procedures pertaining to chemical risk management including response to emergencies at university laboratories. The workshop featured case studies, table-top activities, and risk-assessment exercises to promote collaboration and discussion.
HSP is grateful for this opportunity to work with Ibb University and looks forward to hosting similar trainings in Alhodaidah in the very near future.
