獲銅獎的合約，是為不同的政府場地的升降機及自動梯，提供全面保養和維修服務。值得注意是該承辦商為這項工程合約創設的兩項安全措施 ─ 於更換主纜時使用安全工作平台；及安裝提示標籤，從而減低因大意而忘記拆除控制板內旁路接線的機會。
We encourage our contractors to be considerate and make every effort to minimise negative impact on affected parties, as considerate practices such as caring for workers, neighbours and the environment are conducive to delivering value to the public. We also encourage them to maintain a high level of work safety in order to provide uninterrupted maintenance services for our clients’ facilities, thereby better serving the community.
It is with this spirit that we congratulate our contractors who have exhibited a highly considerate attitude in their work site practices and won awards in the most recent 20th Considerate Contractors Site Award Scheme, jointly organised by Development Bureau and Construction Industry Council. Five EMSD contracts won a Bronze Award and four Merit Awards. One of the five awards was for new works contracts while the rest were for repair, maintenance, alteration and addition works contracts.
The Bronze Award went to a contract for the comprehensive maintenance and repair of lift and escalator installations at various Government premises. Two safety measures taken by that contractor are noteworthy – the safety working platform for suspension rope replacement, and the bypass wiring indicator that minimises the chances of overlooking the bypass wires in control panels which should be removed after maintenance or repairing works.
