Bioprocess Engineering is involved in the design and development of equipment and also in the process for the manufacturing of products from biological materials to finished product. The outputs form the process benefit mankind. The applications of bioprocess engineering in the production of biomaterials in order to obtain finished goods have in addition resulted in the creation of chemical waste which is hazardous. Having said about the benefit, the majority of us whether academicians, scientists, researchers and workers, who are involve in chemical handling, place less important on the hazard related with the use of chemicals at the workplace. The effect on the aforementioned group will be occupational disease. In this Journal academicians, scientists, researcher's etcetera will present their latest research and development findings in the fields they are engage that are useful to human life and less priority is given to safety and health at the workplace. Hence, the authors aim in this journal to present a conceptual paper on the managing of chemical and disposal of chemical waste generate by Bioprocess Engineering at the workplace in accordance to the law so as to create a safe and conducive working environment at the workplace.
