Health and Safety Courses for Graduation Engineers
(HKIED)Health and Safety for Graduate Engineers (Information)

Professional engineers play an important role in occupational safety and health. Safe design and safe operation of engineering works not only prevents accidents but also increases productivity. This in turn strengthens the competitiveness of the organisation. The information engineer can help to prevent accidents or minimise loss through system design with due consideration of safety and health such as the safety behaviour of operators. To enable engineers to fulfil these duties, they need to possess knowledge in safety and health that is seldom included in formal curriculum during their engineering education. The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers recognises this situation and jointly organises safety training courses with the Occupational Safety & Health Council for all graduate engineers.
