Catering Safety and Health Promotional Campaign
Description of campaign:
The OSH conditions in high-risk industries have always been the Council’s top concern and we spare no effort in promoting safety in the catering industry. During the year, we organised large-scale seminars, various award programs and competitions, launched television and radio programs and provided subsidies to SME in purchasing safety equipment. We also worked closely with trade unions, as well as our media partners to distribute lucky bags to front-line staff of different restaurants before Lunar Chinese New Year to increase their safety awareness. All these initiatives pave the way for enhancing safety awareness of both the employers and employees and bring about continuous OSH improvement, not only for the enterprise but also for the entire industry.
