Management and Economics of Construction Safety in Hong Kong
Hong Kong had a very bad record in construction safety in the 1980s
and before. Since the early 1990s, a number of statutory
regulations have been enforced in order to improve safety in Hong
Kong's construction industry. The results of these efforts can
gradually be seen, and this is evidenced by the significant drop in
construction accidents in recent years.
This book is important in keeping construction professionals
informed about Hong Kong's experience in construction safety. It
begins with an overview of safety management systems generally
adopted in the Asian context with the support of construction
accident statistics from a number of countries or cities. Other
topics include factors which influence site safety programmes,
construction safety management systems, safety legislation, safety
auditing, the procedure of accident investigation, the Hong Kong
government's mandatory SSPS (Site Supervision Plan System) that all
contractors and authorized persons/registered structural engineers
have to follow, and construction safety economics.
