Safety concerns in Hong Kong construction. People who work to build things in Hong Kong are worried about accidents. They say just checking the sites isn’t enough to stop accidents. They want more training and better safety rules to keep everyone safe.
Inspections Not Enough
Some groups think that when the government checks the construction sites, it doesn’t really solve the problem. They believe these checks don’t always find the real safety issues because work stops when inspectors come, making it hard to know if things are actually safe.
The main issue, according to the groups, is that workers and bosses at construction sites don’t always follow safety rules. They think it’s because construction schedules are tight and people might not know enough about being safe.
Fixing the Problem
To prevent accidents, they think it’ll take more than just inspections. They want stronger rules, better training for everyone, and more time for workers to do things safely.
Worries About Accidents
There have been many accidents lately, especially when lifting heavy things during construction. This has made everyone more worried about how safe it is to work on construction sites.
Importance of Training
Some experts say that workers need better training, especially those handling heavy things. They think if there are stricter rules and proper training, everyone will take safety more seriously.
Problems with Checks
These experts also say that the people who check the sites might not always know the dangerous spots. The workers who know more about the risks are too busy with paperwork to check things properly.
Still a Big Problem
This year, there have been at least 20 very serious accidents in construction work. The government says they’re watching closely and will talk about this issue to try and make things safer.
