EMSD releases lift and escalator contractors' latest performance ratings

     The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) today (April 10) announced the performance ratings of the registered lift and escalator contractors for the past 12 months (from April 2016 to March 2017) for public reference.

     According to the rating results, 32 registered lift contractors and 18 registered escalator contractors were awarded the Safety Star. Among these contractors, 16 registered lift contractors and 12 registered escalator contractors had not been found non-compliant with the safety and maintenance requirements as reported in the last two consecutive announcements of performance results, and were therefore given the highest rating of five Quality Stars. The EMSD conducted 9,766 inspections of lifts and escalators during the period.

     The rating results, conviction records, summaries of the warning letters and equipment failure records are available on the EMSD's website (www.emsd.gov.hk/emsd/eng/pps/le_pub_mpr.shtml).
