Since we began to disclose health and safety information in 2003, we have maintained a record of zero workplace fatalities of our employees. There have also been no confirmed incidents of non-compliance with relevant laws or regulations relating to the provision of a safe working environment and the protection of employees from occupational hazards which have a significant impact on Swire Properties.

One of our 2020 KPIs is to maintain a LTIR below 2.0 for our employees. As part of our management approach to prevent workplace accidents, we conducted education and awareness talks for our employees tailored for different areas of our business, such as managing deliveries that involve a truck-mounted crane for frontline employees in our Hong Kong portfolio, slip, trip, and fall (“STF”) prevention in our Chinese mainland portfolio and construction safety, working at height and prevention of heat stroke for workers at our construction sites.

In 2020, our LTIR decreased by 23.3% compared to 2019 and our lost day rate (“LDR”)12 increased by 12.9% compared to 2019. In response, we have carried out corrective measures and reviewed the compulsory induction safety training for our Chinese mainland frontline staff.

Internal Health and Safety Performance Awards

In January 2019, we launched an internal awards scheme in Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland to commend our management offices for outstanding health and safety performance, hoping that the scheme will further strengthen our safety-oriented culture.

This scheme gives out several awards, including:

  1. The Zero Lost Time Injury Award ("Zero LTI Award"), which is based on a management office’s health and safety performance. There are three categories for this award: zero lost time injury for 180 days, 500 days and 1,000 days. This year, Sino-Ocean Taikoo Li Chengdu, INDIGO and Taikoo Li Sanlitun in the Chinese mainland and Pacific Place and Citygate in Hong Kong received the 180 days Zero LTI Award, while Taikoo Hui in Guangzhou and Island Place in Hong Kong received the 500 days Zero LTI Award.
  2. The Outstanding Health and Safety Performance Award, which is given to the management office with the best health and safety management at work for that year. The 2019 award was presented to both Taikoo Li Sanlitun in Beijing and Cityplaza in Hong Kong.
  3. The annual Emergency Drill Video Contest, organised for the past three years, documents emergency responses in different situations, ranging from fire control and helping passengers trapped inside an elevator, to a rescue mission in a confined space. This year’s contest was won by Taikoo Hui in Guangzhou.
