PolyU believes that training is one of the key management practices in organizations.  Effective training facilitates the transfer of knowledge, skills and attitudes to employees and students, resulting in enhancement of health, safety and environmental (HSE) performance.  Changes in attitude and behavior through the training process are also beneficial in nurturing a positive health and safety culture in the University.  Moreover, from legal perspective, the provision of health and safety trainings supports PolyU on assurance of fulfilling general duties as an employer. 

HSO identifies university-wide training needs of university members with diversified spectrum of HSE concerns.  Our trainers, as subject matter experts of specialized areas, design and deliver appropriate training courses to enable participants to meet the HSE expectations of PolyU.  There is a variety of HSE trainings available from HSO, covering general HSE education, technical safety training for specific operations (e.g. laboratory and research) and know-how in HSE management. 

We organize HSE trainings in form of traditional classroom training as well as e-learning (online training) using LEARN@PolyU platform to enable best fit learning experience for a particular subject.  Furthermore, the risk-based approach of our trainings encourage systematic problem solving of dynamic HSE matters in day-to-day university activities. 

All staff and students are encouraged for active participation in our HSE trainings to drive PolyU’s safety to next level.
