This Webinar provided by CABE Hong Kong Secretary CHU Chun Wah and his wife Annisa LEUN will cover the following: 

It has been long established that employees have a legal right to be protected on safety and health at work. Mandatory duties on duty holders are prescribed in safety legislation and sanction may be imposed for violation of the safety law. There were cases in Hong Kong that site management staff were prosecuted for failing to act or omission in carrying out their statutory duties. On the other hand, victims in a work-related accident or their beneficiary may claim damages against the duty holders within the branch of negligence in Common Law.

The objective of the talk is to enhance the safety awareness of the site management staff who are expected to exercise reasonably practicable measures to prevent accident and ill health at work. Content of talk includes a brief introduction on the criminal and common law liabilities, possible consequences and sanction imposed on the duty holders for breach in statutes and common law principles. Speakers will share their views with emphasis on risk assessment and safe system of work in accident prevention in Hong Kong.
