Speaking at the ceremony, the Permanent Secretary for Development (Works), Mr Lam Sai-hung, said that innovation and technology will be the key to prosperous development of the construction industry. Industry stakeholders were urged to make good use of innovation and technology and adopt a multi-pronged approach to enhance site safety, with a view to achieving the goal of "zero accidents" in construction sites.
Also officiating at the ceremony, the Chairman of the Construction Industry Council (CIC), Mr Chan Ka-kui, pointed out that site safety is the responsibility of all site personnel. The CIC will continue to provide support to the industry in applying innovation and technology in site operations.
The Considerate Contractors Site Award Scheme was jointly organised by the Development Bureau and the CIC. Fifty-five sites received awards this year, of which 29 came from the public works stream and 26 from the non-public works stream.
