OSHC Training Fee Reduction in 2017-2018
OSH Training Centre Classroom Hygiene Guidelines
   
Foreword

In view of the current Hong Kong economic situation, Occupational Safety and Health Council has reduced the training fees of all courses starting from the financial year 2004-2005. Across the board, 30% discount is given to "small and medium enterprises (SMEs)" in 2017-2018, that is, any manufacturing businesses which employ fewer than 100 persons in Hong Kong; or any non-manufacturing businesses which employ fewer than 50 persons in Hong Kong. This course fee reduction scheme would encourage people to take part in occupational safety training. With the increased safety awareness, accidents in the workplace would also be reduced to bring about productivity improvement.

 

SMEs simply have to fill in the "OSHC Application Form for SME Training Fee Reduction" and attach it to the course application form.


In order to meet the demand on occupational safety training from the public, OSHC organizes wide ranges of training courses which are flexible in lecturing hours. OSHC also offers tailor-made in-house training courses for individual companies. You are welcome to contact us for details.
