  • Safety Supervisory Skills Training Course 安全督導技巧訓練課程

    SRSO NEWS

     

    Dear member,

     

    We forward the following email regarding the above subject from Labour Department for your information.

     

    (中文版本載於本電郵下半部份) 

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Safety Supervisory Skills Training Course


            In light of the industry’s request for devising a training course to meet the basic need of some safety supervisors at work, the Labour Department is pleased to inform you that the course has recently been launched. We would like to invite you to arrange your employees or encourage your workers to enroll in the course. 

            Safety supervisors play an important role to assist in promoting safety and health of persons employed in a construction site.  At present, there is no the training requirement of safety supervisors prescribed in the Factories and Industrial Undertakings (Safety Officers and Safety Supervisors) Regulations. However, to enable safety supervisors to effectively discharge their duties in accordance with the legislation, employers have the duty to ensure that their safety supervisors are properly trained. 

            Concerning the request for a basic training course from the industry, the Occupational Safety and Health Council has launched a 22-hour course, namely the Combined Certificate for Safety Supervisory Skills Training Course (details can be found in the attached leaflet) in late 2017.  The course is concise in contents, shorter in duration, delivered in modular basis to allow flexibility, and designed with top-up arrangement for higher qualification. The course is open to persons with site supervision experience. The training course focuses on conducting preliminary risk assessment, understanding and applying safety system of work, conducting safety inspection to assist with monitoring the implementation of safety system of work on site and following up the remedial measures. 

            In addition, the Construction Industry Council is also preparing its 22-hour training course on Safety Supervisory Skills in Construction Sites. The course will be launched in the second quarter of 2018 tentatively. 

            The above courses can not only equip safety practitioners with relevant knowledge to help them discharge their duties, but also in the long run, help to foster safety culture among workers and improve the safety performance of the construction industry.  The Labour Department would like to take this opportunity to encourage registered safety officers to arrange safety supervisors working in their companies to enroll in the course. 

            If you have any questions, please call Mr. YAU Ho-tak (Tel: 3586 2122) or me (Tel: 3153 4723). 



    Best regards, 
    TSE Bun

    for Commissioner for Labour

    先生/女士:

    安全督導技巧訓練課程


            因應業界要求制訂一個切合一些安全督導員基本工作需要的訓練課程,本處現通知你,有關課程已經推出,並邀請你安排員工或鼓勵工友報讀。 

            在建築地盤內,安全督導員對協助促進地盤中受僱人士的安全及健康,擔當著重要的角色。目前《工廠及工業經營(安全主任及安全督導員)規例》雖然未有列明對安全督導員的訓練要求,但安全督導員若要有效執行法例對他們的要求,僱主有責任確保他們得到合適的訓練。 

            就業界要求的基本訓練課程,職業安全健康局已於2017年底推出了一個22小時的「安全督導技巧訓練綜合證書」課程(詳情可參閱附夾的單張)。這課程內容精簡、時數較短、以單元形式讓學員靈活報讀、提供銜接安排及公開予具備相關地盤督導經驗的人士報讀。課程的訓練重點包括進行初步風險評估、認識和應用安全工作系統、進行安全視察以協助工地監察安全工作系統的執行和跟進改善措施。 

            此外,建造業議會亦正積極籌備其22小時的「地盤安全督導技巧課程」,初步計劃於本年第二季推出。 

            上述課程不但提供相關知識協助安全從業員執行其職務,而且在長遠而言,有助培養工友的安全文化,改善建造業的安全表現。勞工處希望藉此機會鼓勵註冊安全主任安排在其機構工作的安全督導員報讀上述課程。 

            如有疑問,請致電與本處邱浩德先生(電話:3586 2122)或本人(電話:3153 4723)聯絡。
