Occupational Safety, Health and Rehabilitation Specialty Group (OSHRSG) is a group of HKPA members with a special interest in Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) in workplaces and work rehabilitation.
Physiotherapy in OSH is about fostering a safe working environment and minimizing the risk and hazard at work. Throughout the risk assessment on workplace and individual, physiotherapists can provide professional advice on safe working practice with proper equipment and ergonomics. Besides, we also help injured workers return to work through treatments and re-training. If the worker could not successfully return to work with full function, physiotherapists would negotiate with the employers for the potential work adjustment.
OSHRSG has the following objectives:
- To keep our members up-to-date knowledge, latest development and the study opportunity in the field of Occupational Safety, Health and Rehabilitation (OSHR)
- To raise the public awareness by working hard on promoting the proper ergonomics and OSHR information in various means, including interviews in social media, health carnivals and talks, etc.
- To liaise with other related local and international associations and organizations, for the sake of upholding the OSH standard in Hong Kong
