Last week, the tropical cyclone "Lion Rock" struck Hong Kong, and a scaffold collapsed at Beverly Hills on Broadwood Road, Happy Valley, causing one death and one injury.

The chairman of the Hong Kong and Kowloon Scaffolding Tongjing Union, Ho Ping-tak, stated on the TV and TV program "Millennium" today (13) that similar large-scale scaffolds are rare to collapse, saying that if the construction involves the external wall shakedown, some of the scaffolding will be stabilized. The wall connector was removed.

He pointed out that the current law does not restrict the outdoor work arrangements for Typhoon Signal No. 3, which is considered to be a gray area.

The chairman of the Hong Kong and Kowloon Scaffolding Tongjing Union, Ho Ping-tak, pointed out that in general, wall mounts are installed on the outer walls of the construction site to stabilize the scaffolds, and wall mounts are installed after the wind blows. However, when the construction involves the external wall destabilization, some of the sheds will be stabilized. The wall connector of the rack is removed, or it may cause danger.

He pointed out that the current law does not stipulate that outdoor work is not allowed under Typhoon Signal No. 3, and that there is a gray area.

He pointed out that due to the "food wind" in some areas, even under Typhoon Signal No. 3, the wind is relatively strong, and it is dangerous if workers work under the scaffolding.

He suggested that the site foreman should adjust the arrangement of outdoor work according to the situation.
