Labour Department to regularly publish conviction records on contravention of safety legislation
     The Labour Department (LD), starting from today (December 14), will upload to its homepage (www.labour.gov.hk) the conviction records in respect of contraventions of occupational safety and health (OSH) legislation for public inspection with a view to raising the OSH awareness of the industry and the community at large.
     A spokesman for the LD said, "The LD's homepage will list the conviction records of duty-holders in the past two years in respect of their contraventions of the Boilers and Pressure Vessels Ordinance (Cap. 56), the Factories and Industrial Undertakings Ordinance (Cap. 59), the Occupational Safety and Health Ordinance (Cap. 509) and their subsidiary regulations, including the names of the convicted companies, offence locations, dates of offence, regulations involved, brief descriptions of offences, dates of judgment and sentences. According to the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (Cap. 486), the above published information will not include the names of the convicted persons."
     The spokesman added, "The new arrangement will help the relevant stakeholders and the public grasp the duty-holders'
compliance conditions on OSH legislation. The LD will update the information every three months."
     For any enquiries, please call the LD's Legal Services Division at 2852 3716.
