Quality and Safety Day 2018
The EMSD makes continuous improvement to the quality, environment, occupational health and safety (OHS) of work to enhance the quality and efficiency of its services, thus facilitating the delivery of outstanding services to the public by client departments. We organised the Quality and Safety Day 2018 (Q&S Day) with a theme of “Quality, Safety, Innovation, Succession”, at the Lecture Hall of the Hong Kong Science Museum on 26 November 2018. Mr. George Tee, Chief Technology Officer of the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation, and Mr. Poon Yut-ming, Safety Leader of CLP Power Hong Kong Limited, were invited as our officiating guests to share their valuable experiences on innovation and safety respectively at the Q&S Day. More than 200 guests and colleagues attended the event to appreciate the presentation of award-winning projects by various teams.
Mr. Richard Chan, Assistant Director/3, said in his opening address that two important elements of “innovation” and “succession” had been added to this year’s Q&S Day with a view to promoting the research and development of E&M innovative technology and encouraging the application of I&T by colleagues to improve the services we provide to the Department and our clients. To facilitate the management, development and succession of knowledge, the Best Knowledge Contributor Award was added this year to encourage experience and knowledge sharing among colleagues via the “Interest Groups” (IG) of the Knowledge Communities. The IG was set up to promote mutual learning and exchange.
The Q&S Day shared the awarded Best Improvement Projects, the Best OHS Enhancement Projects and the Best Green Projects. The Best Service Delivery Enhancement Award goes to the champion of the Best Improvement Projects, Remote Fault Monitoring System of High Mast Lighting Devices. By utilising self-developed remote data collection device and mobile data technology, this system can monitor the condition of high mast lighting systems, and analyse the current of power boxes for prompt replacement of high-pressure sodium lamps with potential problems. This not only saves manpower and resources for inspection and enhances work efficiency, but also enables members of the public to benefit from lighting installations with more stable performance. All improvement projects highlighted our colleagues’ efforts to strive for improvement on delivering quality engineering solutions for winning clients’ trust and support.
