Performance ratings of registered lift contractors updatedThe Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) today (June 2) announced the results of the Contractors' Performance Rating (CPR) of lift contractors for the past 12 months (from June 2010 to May 2011) on the EMSD website (www.emsd.gov.hk/emsd/eng/pps/le_pub_mpr.shtml).
A total of 37 contractors with marks from 50 to 100 are listed in the CPR results, with 10 contractors scoring full marks of 100. The rating scheme comprises two parts, namely the Maintenance Index and the Safety Index, with each part offering maximum marks of 50. The performance rating is updated quarterly and the cumulated performance monitoring points are valid for 12 months.
Apart from publishing the CPR results, the EMSD has also updated summaries of warning letters issued to registered lift contractors and the lift incident summary record for public reference. In the quarter from March to May 2011, the EMSD issued two warning letters to two contractors, Nikkin Lifts and Escalators Limited and Otis Elevator Company (HK) Limited. The record of warning letters is available on the EMSD website (www.emsd.gov.hk/emsd/e_download/pps/le/warning_letter_list.pdf). In addition, there were four reported lift incidents related to equipment failure in the quarter mentioned above.
