Occupational Safety and Health
Due to the nature of our industry, incidents at the worksites may have detrimental effects on the health and safety of our workers, and our workers are valuable to our Group and to the successful execution of the E&M engineering projects. We endeavor to comply with all relevant laws and regulations on labour, health and safety by routine evaluation of the hazards of our projects and work out feasible working procedures in a way convenient and effective to operators which are reviewed and updated periodically to maintain its effectiveness.
Generally, the main contractors of construction projects will have established the workplace safety and health procedures which all their subcontractors, including us and our subcontractors, are required to comply with on-site. For every project, our on-site safety officer/safety supervisor will ensure that work place safety procedures are adhered to by our employees and by the employees of our subcontractors in conjunction with the safety officers of the main contractors.
Numerous safety-related initiatives and measures are put in place to safeguard the health and safety of our employees. For example, we have redesigned ancillary equipment to improve convenience and mitigate risks to our employees. By replacing the heavy-duty welding gas cylinder cart with the light-duty detachable cart, employees are no longer required to use prolonged extensive rubber tubes to connect the gas cylinder for gas supply. The new cart also reduces the physical effort required in gas cylinder transport and minimises exposure to safety risks.

We have implemented a registration system to ensure all on-site equipment and tools are in good condition and can be safely used by on-site workers. Tools and equipment brought by subcontractors for use on-site are categorised and assigned a registration code in the registration system which also includes the registration date and the subcontractor’s company name. Aside from the two minor cases, the Group has complied with laws and regulations relevant to health and safety of our employees.
