Mr. Y. K. Kam








As a dedicated member of the Occupational Safety and Health Council (OSHC), Mr. Y. K. Kam served as a founding consultant between 1989-94. During his tenure, Mr. Kam rendered invaluable assistance to OSHC in the development of safety and health management directives and approaches for workplaces, especially factories and industrial undertakings. In addition, he was keenly aware of the importance of application of safety management in the workplace. In 1994, he accepted the offer from the then Hong Kong Polytechnic as Head, Health and Safety to establish a health and safety office (renamed as Health, Safety and Environment Office in 2004). In the seminar, Mr. Kam will share with participants how he translates the theories into health and safety programmes/practices, and what precious lessons he has learned in his university career spanning more than two decades.
