Work suspended on Tuen Mun construction site after accident

The Secretary for Labor and Welfare, Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, said the authority has suspended the operation of a construction site at Tuen Mun where a worker there was struck dead by a falling crane hook on Tuesday.

The 62-year-old man was driving a crane lorry at the construction site for Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge when he was hit by a 500 kilograms hook.

Cheung rejected accusations that the industrial accident is linked to the government’s ambition to speed up the construction.

He said the government puts workers’ safety at its highest priority and urged contractors to strictly follow safety rules.
