Hong Kong groundhandler Hactl wins 4 Hong Kong OSH awards
HONG KONG’ largest independent air cargo handler – Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) – has won four awards in the 20th Hong Kong Occupational Safety and Health Award scheme, organised by the Occupational Safety & Health Council (OSHC).
Hactl achieved the top honours (Gold) in both the Safety Management System Award (Other Industries) and OSH Promotion Award categories. The former – regarded as the definitive accolade for corporate safety measures – recognised Hactl’s exceptional health and safety culture, which has achieved a 70 per cent reduction in workplace accidents since 2014.
The OSH Promotion Award meanwhile focused on Hactl’s “Safety Week 2020”, which upheld the company’s strong policy of educating staff and business partners in workplace safety. This important annual event continued in an online format in 2020, to overcome the challenges presented by Covid-19.
Hactl also secured Silver in the OSH Enhancement Program Award, and Bronze in the Occupational Rehabilitation Award.
Hactl’s chief financial officer Amy Lam received the Safety Management System (Other Industries) Gold Award from OSHC chairman Alan Chan Hoi-shou. The Gold Award for OSH Promotion was meanwhile presented to Hactl’s Head of Safety, Sustainability and Quality Assurance, Benny Siu.
Said Ms Lam: “As a caring employer, we will continue investing in staff wellbeing since nothing is more important. Our aim is to create a culture of constant safety vigilance in which staff takes care of themselves and those around them.”
