Chemical Handling and Environmental Forum

Chemical Handling and Environmental Forum (CHEF)

Chemical Handling

CAIA is the custodian of Responsible Care® in South Africa and as such undertakes the task of promoting the responsible handling of chemicals throughout their lifecycle. Inter alia the fundamental features of RC require the open communication on health, safety and environmental matters with interested parties, both inside and outside the industry, and to allow the opportunity for the sharing of views. The Chemical Handling and Environmental Forum strive to provide a forum to meet these requirements.
