About OES

The Occupational and Environmental Safety (OES) Unit of the Industrial Centre is the first of its kind in tertiary education. It has become a major professional training base and service provider in the field of industrial safety. The Unit is a natural evolution from the previous Safety Unit, which has been pioneering safety education in Hong Kong since 1979.


For over 20 years it has been conducting Safety Officer training courses that received accreditation from the Labour Department. Graduates are deemed to have satisfied the academic requirements for the statutory registration of Safety Officers. Aptly enough they form the backbone of the practicing safety professionals in Hong Kong. It is also the first establishment in Hong Kong to host a Master's Degree programme in Safety management. There have been popular demand since the postgraduate scheme was launched in 1996.


Quality Assurance and Safety Management

The Industrial Centre has always held professional excellence and high quality as its foremost goals.  The principles of Quality Assurance and Safety Management adopted by the Centre are, individuals, neither new or unique, but in the present case have been implemented as a total system approach driven by the Centre's vision and mission.  To provide appropriate quality and safety leadership the IC has initiated a Performance Pledge and promulgated departmental Safety & Health and QA Policies to cultivate a quality and safety culture that strives for continuous improvement.
