Details :

The new Lifts and Escalators Ordinance (Chapter 618) ("the Ordinance") have come into force and repealed the previous Lifts and Escalators (Safety) Ordinance (Chapter 327) since 17 December 2012. The Ordinance introduces a series of enhanced control measures including extending the coverage of the legislation; strengthening the registration regime of personnel engaged in lift and escalator works; increasing the penalty levels of offences; and improving the regulatory processes to enhance efficiency.

A new position, i.e. Responsible Persons ("RPs"), has been introduced into the Ordinance. The RPs, including owners of a lift/escalator and any other person who have the management or control of the lift/escalator, e.g. facility management practitioners or property maintenance executives, have the duty to ensure their lift/escalator is kept in a proper state of repair and in safe working order.

In the talk, the speaker will introduce the details and principles of the Ordinance, e.g. equipment compliance, quality control, registration system, public monitoring, record keeping, etc
