    作為承建商/分判商/僱主:

    2.         必須為竹棚架工作的工人提供安全的進出途徑;

    3.         提供適當的防墮設備,如全身式安全帶、防墮扣、穩固點、獨立救生繩給工人使用,有關詳細要求,請參閱勞工處發出的《安全帶及其繫穩系統的分類與使用指引》。 此外應實施完善的監察制度,保證工人完全及妥善地使用安全設備;

    4.         必須為工人提供充足的資料獨指示、訓練和監督以確保工作安全。


    作為前線管工及工友:

    1.     於搭建,拆卸及於竹棚架工作時,工人必須配戴安全帶,並繫於穩固點、獨立救生繩上,不可隨意把防墮設備繫於窗框、窗鉸或任何不穩固的繫穩物上;

    2.     工人應在合資格人員監督下進行搭建或拆卸竹棚架;

    3.     工人必須已接受適當訓練和足夠經驗。


    作為安全從業員:

                  勞工處於20166月就工地車輛和流動作業裝置撞倒工人的致命意外,發出過一

    份「工地車輛和流動作業裝置的風險控制」的系統性安全警示,旨在提醒有關人士留

    意系統性安全問題及所需採取的預防意外措施,以保障從事類似工作的人員安全。並

    列出主要常見的系統性安全不足的問題,當中包括:

     

                  沒有針對涉及交通或工地車輛或流動作業裝置的操作,進行風險評估

                  及制訂安全工作系統;及

                  交通管理不善,以致控制措施不足以防止有人遭移動中的工地車輛或

                  流動作業裝置撞倒。

     

                  鑑於近期再次發生同類的致命意外,本處希望藉此電郵再度向有關人士强調系

    統性安全的重要性和所需採取的預防意外措施,避免同類意外再次發生。並附上該份

    警示的中文版及相關網頁連結,以供參考。

    Dear Sirs / Madams,

     

                  The  Labour Department (“LD”) issued a Systemic Safety Alert of “Risk Control of Workplace Vehicles and Mobile Plant” in June 2016 in response to the  fatal  accident  involving  workplace  vehicles and mobile plants. The purpose  of  the  alert is to draw the attention of relevant parties to the

    relevant   systemic   safety  problems  and  accident  prevention  measures

    necessary  to protect people engaging in similar works activities.  It also lists  out  those  major systemic safety deficiencies commonly found, which

    include:

     

                 failure to conduct risk assessments and to formulate a safe

                    system  of  work  involving  the  traffic  or  operation of

                    workplace vehicles or mobile plant; and

                 poor traffic management with inadequate control measures to

                    prevent  persons  from  being  struck  by  moving workplace

                    vehicles or mobile plant.

     

    2.           In view of recent recurrence of the similar fatal accidents, LD would

    like  to  reiterate with this email to further emphasis to relevant parties about the importance of the systemic safety and relevant necessary accident prevention  measures  to  prevent  similar  accidents from happening again.

    Copy  of  the  Alert  in  English and the relevant weblink are attached for

    reference:
