Contractor fined for violation of safety legislation
     Liberal Engineering Limited was fined $99,000 at Shatin Magistrates' Courts today (November 25) for violation of the Factories and Industrial Undertakings Ordinance and the Construction Sites (Safety) Regulations. The prosecutions were launched by the Labour Department.
     The case involved a fatal accident that occurred on April 27, 2022, in Tai Po. While three scaffolders were erecting a bamboo scaffold at the external wall of a detached house, the scaffold suddenly collapsed, causing the scaffolders to fall to the ground. As a result, one scaffolder sustained fatal injury while another was injured.
