On managing workplace health and safety in Hong Kong, a legally-required safety management system incorporates 14 elements. As its name implies, any system, including a safety management system which adopts the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, necessarily involves system elements and sequential flow, which demands the “Plan” element to precede the other three elements. Similar safety tools, such as the Fault Tree Analysis and Event Tree Analysis adopt the same vertical flow pattern. The Speaker will however focus his presentation on an alternative approach in managing workplace health and safety, using a flat or horizontal mode of safety ideas collection, commonly known in the management field as brainstorming, and propose a combination of the two methodologies.
Remarks: The seminar is free of charge. Enrollment is on a first-come first-served basis. Members register on-line will be acknowledged automatically. Information collected here will be used solely for the administration of this event.
