Universities are tasked with increasing environmental safety in parallel with facilitating research activities. The research field at universities has characteristics of a high level of expertise, originality, multiplicity, and interdisciplinary. The diversity of the research site is not limited to the internationalization / gender of the members, the differences in the cultural background of members, the complexity and sophistication of the research, and the interdisciplinarity of the research field, but also includes the types of equipment and chemicals used in the experiment. Though these issues likely depend on individual circumstances, they are still common issues in every country, and it is expected that the safety education methods that are effective at each site will also have high commonality. It is important to work for each country on the harmonization for sharing and cooperating on an innovative way of safety management and education methods.
