  H1 

Note 1 –

Industrial accidents rate

Number of industrial accidents (Respective categories / sectors )

Average number of manual workers engaged for each year at construction sites (Respective categories / sectors) / 1000

Note 2 –

Number of reportable industrial accidents (Whole Industry) = Reportable industrial accidents (New Works includes both Civil and Building Works) + Reportable industrial accidents number (RMAA Works)

Note 3 –

Reportable industrial accidents (New Works includes both Civil and Building Works) = Reportable industrial accidents (Public Sector Sites) + Reportable industrial accidents (Private Sector Sites).

Note 4 –

Number of manual workers before 2003 excludes E&M workers and those workers work at the sites under the charge of the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department and the Environmental Protection Department but the data includes those workers after 2003.

Note 5 –

Number of manual workers excludes the workers work for RMAA works. For sites under the charge of Government departments, manual workers in some 40 selected major occupations at the skilled and semi-skilled levels are covered in the administrative returns furnished by the respective Government departments.

Note 6 –

The industrial accident rates for Whole Industry and RMAA Works are not available due to the exclusion of workers for RMAA Works in the overall number of manual workers as mentioned in Note 5 above. Hence, only the total number of industrial accidents is presented for these two categories.

Note 1 –

Fatal accidents rate

 

Number of fatal accidents (Respective categories / sectors)

Average number of manual workers engaged for each year at construction sites (Respective categories / sectors) / 100,000

Note 2 –

Number of fatal accidents (Whole Industry) =Fatal accidents (New Works includes both Civil and Building Works) + Fatal accidents number (RMAA Works)

Note 3 –

Fatal accidents (New Works includes both Civil and Building Works) = Fatal accidents (Private Sector Sites) + Fatal accidents (Public Sector Sites)

Note 4 –

Number of manual workers before 2003 excludes E&M workers and those workers work at the sites under the charge of the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department and the Environmental Protection Department but the data includes those workers after 2003.

Note 5 –

Number of manual workers excludes the workers work for RMAA works. For sites under the charge of Government departments, manual workers in some 40 selected major occupations at the skilled and semi-skilled levels are covered in the administrative returns furnished by the respective Government departments.

Note 6 –

The fatal accident rates for Whole Industry and RMAA Works are not available due to the exclusion of workers for RMAA Works in the overall number of manual workers as mentioned in Note 5 above. Hence, only the total number of industrial accidents is presented for these two categories.

HS3 Number of Summonses Convicted per HK$100,000,000 Gross Value of Construction Works

HS3.1 Whole Industry

Category: Whole Industry

Sector: N/A

Overall performance demonstrated an improving trend before 2011 except RMAA works. In 2012, the numbers increased in all sectors compared to 2011. Performance in the public sector was generally better than that in the private sector in the last few years. The rate for Public Sector was kept below 0.5 over the past 9 years.

  H3 

Note 1 –

Number of summonses convicted per HK$100,000,000 gross value of construction works

 

Number of summonses convicted (Whole Industry / Respective categories or sectors)

Gross value of construction works (Whole Industry / Respective categories or sectors) (at constant (2000) market prices) / 100,000,000

Note 2 –

Number of summonses convicted (Whole Industry) can be calculated by the formulas below:

  1. Number of summonses convicted (New Works includes both Civil and Building Works) + Number of summonses convicted (RMAA Works), or;
  2. Number of summonses convicted (Private Sector) + Number of summonses convicted (Public Sector)

 

Note 3 –

Gross value of construction works (Whole Industry) = Gross value of construction works (at construction sites) + Gross value of construction works (at locations other than sites = RMAA Works).

Note 4 –

Gross value of construction works (at construction sites) can be calculated by using the formulas below:

  1. Gross value of construction works (Civil Works (Structure & Facilities)) + Gross value of construction works (New Building Works (Buildings)) or;
  2. Gross value of construction works (Public sector construction sites) + Gross value of construction works (Private sector construction sites)

 

Note 5 –

Number of summonses convicted per HK$100,000,000 gross value of construction works (Whole Industry), Number of summonses convicted per HK$100,000,000 gross value of construction works (New Works) and Number of summonses convicted per HK$100,000,000 gross value of construction works (RMAA Works) are calculated by the number of summonses convicted divided by the HK$100,000,000 gross value of construction works in respective work type x 100,000,000.

Note 6 –

Number of summonses convicted per HK$100,000,000 gross value of construction works (Public sector) and Number of summonses convicted per HK$100,000,000 gross value of construction works (Private sector) are calculated by the number of summonses convicted divided by the gross value of construction works (Whole industry) instead of the respective sector due to the different in the coverage for RMAA Works.

Note 7 –

Based on notes 5 & 6 above, index group of those for Whole Industry, New Works and RMAA Works cannot be compared directly with the index group for Public Sector and Private Sector.

Note 8 –

Data for 2001 to 2004 is not available.
