• Lighthouse Club Hong Kong Health & Safety Awards

    17 July 2018

    On the March 16, a large gathering at the Garden Lounge of the Hong Kong Club gave testimony that the event remains as attractive as ever with record entries being received for the categories of Golden Helmet and Safety Leadership.

    In addition a new category Health & Safety Supplier of the Year was initiated and attracted numerous high quality entries paying testimony to the efforts of the supply chain in its support of construction health and safety.

    “It was extremely difficult to select a winner”, stated Stephen Pollock the safety sub- committee chair, he went on “such was the number and quality of entries we formed a number of separate judge panels to do justice in assessing the obvious efforts of many”.

    The Golden Helmet was awarded to Dr Philco Wong, Projects Director of MTR Corporation who has been a long term supporter of Lighthouse Committee and advocate of sharing safety resources and information amongst the Hong Kong construction sector. The entries for two further candidates Tony Small of Gammon and Ian Livingston of the Airport authority were so compelling that the committee made special awards of ‘Highly Commended Approach to Safety Leadership with KL Lee of Dragages HK receiving a commended award in the same category.

    The Derek Smyth Safety Leadership award once again went to the
    Airport Authority Hong Kong who demonstrated in their submission detailed plans to protect the health and safety of its workers. Two further submissions from MTR Projects Division and West Kowloon Cultural District were so extensive in their commitment that the panel felt merited ‘highly commended’ recognition in this category.

    Lastly the first winner of the Health & Safety Supplier of the year award went to the Lighthouse Club’s long term safety partner Hilti (HK) Limited with Liebherr (HK) meriting highly commended in this same category.

    As a closing gesture to the awards Ada Fung, President of the Lighthouse Club HK, was grateful to receive a fundraising cheque from Hilti (HK) of $30,000.00
