Chemical Safety Online Conference on “Safe Use of Chemical Disinfectants and Pesticides”

CPD unit under Hong Kong Safety and Health Certification Scheme : 2

Chemical disinfectants such as bleach and alcohol disinfection products are widely used in different industries under pandemic as a measure to maintain personal and environmental hygiene. For some industries like cleaning services, arboriculture and horticulture, and catering, pesticides are used to control pests. These chemicals, if not properly handled, may pose harm to workers and members of the public.

The Chemical Safety and Health Advisory Committee of OSHC is going to organize the Chemical Safety Online Conference under the theme "Safe Use of Chemical Disinfectants and Pesticides". Representatives from the Labour Department and the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department will highlight the safety tips when handling the chemicals. Consultant from the Council will introduce SME Sponsorship Schemes, in particular the schemes to enhance chemical safety.

With a view to aligning the regulatory system of dangerous goods (DGs) with the international standards, and at the same time enhancing the safety of the manufacture, conveyance, storage and use of DGs, while facilitating the operation of the trade and the daily use of DGs by the public, legislative amendments are made to the Dangerous Goods Ordinance (Cap. 295) and its subsidiary legislation. Representative from the Fire Services Department will address the new regulatory regime and its control of chemical disinfectants.

The prize presentation ceremony of Chemical Safety Poster and Sticker Design Competition 2021 will also be held at the Online Conference.
