Mr Lee expressed concern about the fatal accident in West Kowloon, reiterated that the person in charge of the site should do a good job in risk management and safety awareness, and the operators should also do a good job in prevention, emphasizing that occupational safety work is a long-term work and will continue to be promoted in the future.
When asked how to prevent non-compliance with the legal requirements of the industrial accident at Principal Square Shopping Centre on Austin Road, Mr Lee described the industrial accident in Kowloon West as serious and necessary to participate together to avoid the occurrence of industrial accidents. He also pointed out that the occupational safety and health law has been increased to impose up to two years in prison, but no matter how many laws are required, everyone should participate in it and make their own efforts to prevent accidents.
He pointed out that in addition to occupational safety and health legislation, occupational safety and health culture is required, and both site managers and operators will be aware of its importance. He pointed out that the recent promotion of technology to assist occupational safety and health requires strict compliance with the measures, and the Government will also conduct inspections to follow up after accidents and understand the truth.
He also said that no matter whether the penalty is raised or the guidelines are written, operators, participants and operators will strictly implement it, and the Government Inspection will spare no effort to clarify responsibilities every time an accident occurs, and the Labour Department has immediately inspected the hidden working environment.
