Hong Kong Occupational & Environmental Health Academy (HOEHA)
The Hong Kong Occupational & Environmental Health Academy (HOEHA) is an independent, not-for-profit training and research organization. Our mission is to protect and improve occupational health for the working populations and environmental health for all. The main strategies include capacity building for occupational and environmental health professionals through integrated and specialized training, assessment of occupational and environmental health needs and challenges with evaluation of the strategies in addressing such needs through research, and facilitation of evidence-based practices in the field through knowledge transfer with accreditation and consultancy projects.
Background of HOEHA
In 2014, with the Hong Kong Workers’ Health Centre (HKWHC, a non-governmental organization) entering her 30th year of commitment and services in protecting workers’ health, members of the Board of Directors (including specialist medical doctors, occupational hygienists, rehabilitation therapists, social workers and other occupational health & safety professionals) decided to take a step forward in realizing their vision by setting up an academy (HOEHA) to provide quality training to professionals for enhancing professional standards and to facilitate the development of good occupational and environmental health practices in the field through research, accreditation and consultancy projects.
