Value for People
The Safety and Environmental Sub-committee and the Site Safety Sub-committee are responsible for managing the Group’s health and safety matters. In 2021, comparing the Hong Kong industry’s data to our past accident rate, the former is 29.5 while ours is 5.3, demonstrating our good on-site monitoring. At construction sites, the Site Safety Sub-committee conducts weekly inspections to ensure that any identified safety issues are addressed promptly. Safety officers at each site also closely monitor safety-related issues and take effective corrective actions promptly whenever necessary. We carry out independent safety audits every six months to evaluate our safety effectiveness. Site workers are encouraged to report risks through a variety of channels including notifying the safety officer, attending committee meetings and using suggestion boxes.
If risks are identified on-site, our safety officer will apply control measures to mitigate the hazard, which include ensuring that workers use proper personal protective equipment and that all equipment used has been inspected by qualified personnel. In the event of a work-related incident, the safety officer will conduct a formal inspection with relevant parties to document the matter, including its causes as well as recommendations and follow-up actions to prevent similar incidents in the future. Inspection findings from work-related incidents will be included in the investigation report and communicated to the Site Safety Sub-committee during regular meetings.
On top of internal safety teams, external safety consultants are hired on-site to advise on the Group’s overall occupational health management system. In addition to internal events within the company, we have safety consultants solely focused on safety issues to ensure full safety compliance, avoidance of fines and protection of the health and safety of our employees. They also serve as a buffer between management and workers in soliciting feedback and implementing change, contributing to a more advanced health and safety management system.

In an effort to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr Lee Ka Kit, Peter and Dr Lee Ka Shing, Martin, the Group’s Chairmen, established the privately-financed Henderson Development Anti-Epidemic Fund (“the Fund”) back in January 2020. The Fund has since launched a series of relief measures and initiatives in Hong Kong and mainland China to support the community and fight the virus. As of March 2022, the Fund has contributed around HK$150 million worth of anti-epidemic supplies and monetary support.
