EMSD requests MTRCL to investigate staff assessment mechanism
     The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) has grave concern about the media report of cheating by staff of the MTR Corporation Limited (MTRCL) during qualification assessments. The EMSD today (June 6) demanded that the MTRCL carry out investigation and submit detailed information to ensure that the entire process of staff assessment is conducted in strict accordance with the requirements and guidelines of the MTRCL.
     The EMSD emphasised that the safety and reliability of the railway system, with a daily patronage of over 5 million, is of utmost importance. Apart from investigating the cause in the event of a railway incident and ensuring the MTRCL's full and effective implementation of all identified improvement measures, the EMSD will also conduct regular inspections and monitor the MTRCL's strict compliance with its safety management system, including staff training and competence management, so as to ensure railway safety.
