To continuously enhance the safety awareness and technical standards of electrical workers as well as cultivating a work safety culture in the trade, the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) has been collaborating with trade associations over the years to organise different publicity activities. The Outstanding Registered Electrical Worker Awards Scheme is among one of them. The Scheme aims to select outstanding electrical workers in the trade to recognise their excellent performance and promotes trade paradigms. Besides, trade members can learn how the award winners implement a work safety culture in their work. This year, the EMSD will collaborate with the Hong Kong and Kowloon Electrical Engineering and Appliances Trade Workers Union and the Hong Kong Electrical Contractors’ Association to resume organising the Outstanding Registered Electrical Worker Awards Scheme, with a view to further encouraging registered electrical workers to improve quality control and work processes, thus fostering the trade to set an example and enhance professional standards.


  1. To consistently encourage registered electrical workers (REWs) to promote a work safety culture;
  2. To continuously enhance the technical standards of REWs;
  3. To promote trade paradigms and invite REWs to share their insights/give demonstrations to trade members for reference.
