Contractors fined for violation of safety legislation
     Yongnam Engineering (HK) Limited and Siu Wah Steel Work Company Limited were each fined $30,000 at Kwun Tong Magistrates' Courts today (September 16) for violation of the Factories and Industrial Undertakings Ordinance and the Factories and Industrial Undertakings (Lifting Appliances and Lifting Gear) Regulations. The prosecutions were launched by the Labour Department.
     The case involved a fatal accident that occurred on March 31, 2020, at a construction site in Tseung Kwan O. While a group of workers was carrying out metal strut installation work in a trench, a strut suspended by a crawler-mounted crane suddenly slipped and struck one of the workers. The worker sustained a serious injury and passed away on the same day.
