ISG in Hong Kong wins a silver health and safety award
ISG in Hong Kong is delighted to have received a silver award for the second year running at the 20th Construction Safety Forum and Award Presentation Ceremony, which was held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Wan Chai.
The award is organised by the Occupational Safety and Health Council, Labour Department, together with government departments, unions and associations, construction site management, safety professionals and frontline workers with excellent occupational health and safety standards.
This year, ISG’s ongoing refurbishment and alteration and addition (A&A) project for Alexandra House in Central, was shortlisted.
Alexandra House is a high-risk and highly technical scheme that includes working at height and structural works, which requires high safety standards for accident prevention.
Our safety team has implemented an effective Safety Management System (SMS) and committed to a high standard of occupational health and safety.
Among the eight shortlisted organisations, ISG’s exceptional health and safety practices were rewarded with a silver award in the ‘Best Refurbishment and Maintenance Contractor in Occupational Safety and Health’ category.
HSQE manager in Hong Kong, Tony Kwok, commented: “The award is a motivating reward to recognise our team’s efforts in maintaining high healthy and safety standards for this complex project, involving implementation of SMS, risk assessment, regular safety inspection and audit, routine meetings to review the effectiveness of SMS.”
Operations director, Mark Osborne, said: “We have been actively supporting and reinforcing our safety culture across all sectors of our business and are extremely proud to have had our efforts recognised in consecutive years.
“This focus will continue as we implement our new ‘Choose safe. Choose health.’ campaign.”
