Lakesmere Hong Kong Wins Top Safety Award

Leading cladding and building envelope specialist Lakesmere Group has been presented with the first prize at the Lighthouse Club Hong Kong’s Safe Subcontractor Awards 2017. The prestigious award is in recognition of the company’s commitment to maintaining the highest standards of health and safety during the installation of the standing seam roof at the Passenger Clearance Building in Hong Kong.

Lakesmere holds one of most robust health and safety records in the UK construction industry, with zero fatalities recorded in its 25 year history and an accident frequency rate 50% lower than the published industry standard. This successful model and proactive approach to health and safety has been replicated across the company’s work in the international market, most recently in the Hong Kong and South East Asia region, where Lakesmere’s dedicated Hong Kong team has been working with main contractors Leighton and Chun Wo to deliver the roofing contract for the new passenger clearance building for the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge.

The Lighthouse Club Hong Kong’s Safe Subcontractor Awards recognises the safe working practices Lakesmere has adopted throughout its work on this significant infrastructure contract.  The judges were impressed by Lakesmere’s dedicated and organised approach to health and safety on site. Other notable comments were that there was a good level of near-miss reports, top management were clearly very involved in site safety management, there were several health and safety initiatives, a high level of employee involvement and various health and safety training programmes implemented over and above statutory minimum.

Commenting on the prestigious award win, Mike Moloney, Project Director said: “With such a strong reputation for health and safety in the UK, Lakesmere has always been committed to maintaining the same high standards in the way that we approach our contracts overseas.  We are delighted to have been recognised at such a prestigious event as the Lighthouse Club Hong Kong Safe Subcontractor Awards and are extremely proud of everyone who has played a key role in the safe and successful delivery of the complex roofing work at the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge passenger clearance building project.”

The influential award scheme is organised by the Hong Kong brand of the renowned construction industry charity the Lighthouse Club and Lakesmere Hong Kong was presented with its first prize award at a special Contractor’s Dinner held on Friday 29th September.

Furthermore, in recognition of its exemplary safety standards and success, Lakesmere has been invited to speak at a forthcoming MTR (Mass Transit Railway) Projects Division Safety Innovation Conference and Exhibition in Hong Kong in early November.
