Welcome from the Chair
Firstly, welcome to the Hong Kong branch, it is a great honour for me to take on the role and support the Hong Kong branch and our members. As the first female chair, I hope to inspire other female colleagues to come forward and participate more within the branch over the year we aim to host some events to empower and support a diversity and inclusion with our OSH webinar options. Over the past two years, the branch has successfully delivered a full virtual programme of professional development events. Now, as we enter the phase of living with COVID due advancements in vaccination, this year we hope arrange to meet again in person and I look forward to welcoming as many of you as I can our branch events.
The outlook for the Hong Kong industry and particularly construction remains very strong with infrastructure development, Lantau tomorrow vision, Third Runway System, New MTR extensions and very important hospitals and residential housing looking very positive. The construction sector however has real challenges in terms of serious and fatal accidents and the branch will continue to collaborate with UK, Singapore and our local government to ensure Design for Safety recommendations to the industry continue within our research and development team together with our Honorary Advisors to lead this work.
Under our aspiration to be more inclusive and reach more members we will aim to host events in Cantonese, English and Mandarin with events to be inclusive of broader safety sectors, female workers and we will continue with programmes on mental health and wellbeing so we provide a range of webinars which engage with experts and IOSH professionals on how we can improve the health of our workforce.
The professional CPD programme for our members is underway, but if you have any requests then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
