Tripoli — A workshop on training for the evaluation of industrial risks is underway in Tripoli, an initiative of the General Libyan Environment Office.
Secretary of the Committee for the Environment, H'tewish Faraj H'tewish, said the four-day meeting seeks to improve the competence of technicians working in the industrial sector.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) office in Libya is associated with the training, which opened Sunday.
The outcome of the workshop is expected to help educate various sectors of the population on environmental protection.
Stressing the need for a study on the impact of industrial projects, H'tewish called for the strengthening of the control of all factors that are likely to affect the environment, the setting up of a mechanism for pollution reduction, and adherence to the principle of a healthy and non-polluting industry.
Papers on various themes pertaining to environmental pollution will be presented at the meeting.
