Health and Safety Courses for Graduation Engineers
(HKIEE)Health and Safety for Graduate Engineers (Electrical and Mechanical Industry)

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. Electrical and mechanical engineers have the responsibility of taking safety and health issues into consideration when designing machinery and systems of work, selecting materials and equipment; controlling systems and maintenance programmes, etc. 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 the demand and jointly organises related safety training courses with the Occupational Safety & Health Council for all graduate engineers.

Module III: Safety Management
Modern safety management systems
Safety and health performance of Hong Kong industries
Organisations of occupational safety and health in Hong Kong
