The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) announced the performance results of registered lift and escalator contractors for the past 12 months (i.e. from July 2014 to June 2015).
The EMSD has been using a Star Rating System to present the safety and services quality performance of contractors since January 2014. The ratings are based on the inspection results of the past 12 months. It aims at providing a useful reference for responsible persons of lifts and escalators in selecting the appropriate registered contractor to maintain their installations.
To facilitate the public to understand the performance of registered contractors, the user can select the name of any registered contractor on the webpage for immediate access to its information regarding the last CPR results, reported equipment fault incidents, warning letters issued to the contractor, records of prosecution and disciplinary cases.

EMSD is organising the "Outstanding Registered Electrical Workers Awards Scheme 2015" to arouse the safety awareness and enhance professionalism continuously among members of the electrical trade and to award registered electrical workers with outstanding performance in these two areas.
