The Asian Conference on Safety & Education in Laboratory or abbreviated as ACSEL, is an annual conference organized by leading universities in Asia to provide a platform for scientists, engineers, researchers as well as professionals in order to discuss and share the knowledge related to best practices on laboratory safety and health aspects. In 2022, the conference was held by National University of Singapore. This conference profitably brought a huge range of topics associated with laboratory safety. This year, we are very glad to announce that the 10th conference (ACSEL 2023) organized by Disaster Risk Reduction Center Universitas Indonesia (DRRC UI) will be held in Bali, Indonesia from 9th – 10th November 2023.

History of ACSEL

The 1st International Symposium on Safety and Health Education in the University was held at Ehime University, Japan, in January 2013. We undersigned Ehime Declaration to the following:

    1. We will continue to hold symposia on health and safety education in the university.
    2. We will establish a network of health and safety education leaders for mutual exchange.
    3. We will aim to achieve a world-class standard for health and safety education.

We have been convinced that there are a lot of issues which should be solved in laboratory safety and we should share the useful information and good  examples to improve the laboratory safety in each Asian county. The 1st Asian Conference on Safety and Education in Laboratory was successfully held at The  University of Tokyo, Japan.
