Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) is one of the teachers unions in kenya. KUPPET deals with welfare of teachers in all secondary schools in the country. It advocates for better pay of teachers in secondary schools as wells are good working conditions of teachers.

KUPPET is under the leadership of Akello Misori who is secretary general and Omboko Milemba who is currently chairperson.

It is now good news to science teachers as KUPPET want Teachers Service Commission TSC to pay them risk allowance.

Mr Ronald Tonui, the assistant national treasurer said the teachers were exposed to a lot of health risks while handling dangerous chemicals in laboratories in the course of imparting knowledge to learners in schools.

“Science teachers have contracted serious respiratory diseases owing to the exposure to chemicals during practical lessons in laboratories over the years and some have died as a result yet they are not compensated for the risks,” Mr Tonui said.

He added that the most affected are those teaching chemistry and physics as they handle chemicals that emit gases and are prone to explosions and also deal with electrical appliances.
