ISG in Hong Kong is honoured to have received a gold award in the category of “Best Refurbishment and Maintenance Contractor in Occupational Safety and Health” during the 19th Construction Safety Forum and Award Presentation held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on 6th July 2018.

Jointly organised by the Occupational Safety and Health Council, Labour Department and several other organisations in the construction industry, the award offers recognition to companies adopting best practices in occupational health and safety at construction sites.

Our recently completed hospitality project, Yan Toh Heen at InterContinental Hong Kong, was shortlisted for the competition. In May, a judging panel consisting of governmental officials visited the construction site for inspection, and ISG briefed them of its safety policies.

In keen competition with over 20 entries from other well-known industry players, ISG impressed the judging panel with a well-organised safety plan and risk assessment, good housekeeping, full personal protective equipment (PPE) and secure equipment used on the construction site.

Proud of the tremendous achievement, head of HSQE in Hong Kong, Tony Kwok, commented: “Safety has always been a top priority for us. Kudos to our safety management and project teams who consistently work hard together to ensure safety across every site is a high priority.

Tony continued: “The prestigious recognition from the judging panel leaves a lasting impact for us to further promote occupational health and safety in our workplaces." 

"We strive to be the role model with the highest level of safety consciousness within the local construction industry.”
