 The Kyoto Institute of Technology (KIT) has constituted environmental management system (EMS) to educate researchers and students with environmental awareness, and officially obtained certification of ISO 14001 in 2001. In addition to the teaching staff, fourth-year undergraduates and graduate students assigned to the laboratories are constituent members participating in EMS. Besides environmental subjects, the basic training has been conducted for all members as the EMS education on April every year, and then the training for experiment-sites on the management of sewage effluent of the campus, chemical substances, high pressure gas and liquid nitrogen, classification and treatment for waste liquids and solid wastes has been carried out. The workshop on working environment measurement using gas detector tubes has been conducted on September since 2005 and the emergency training has been carried out in midOctober every year. The 4th Wednesday of April was established as "The Education day for Environment and Safety" from 2012 to educate whole members in KIT with environmental safety awareness, and the training for non-experiment sites and the emergency training for first-year undergraduates were added.
