香港工程師學會回應沙中綫事件

(香港,二零一八年八月八日) 香港工程師學會(下稱「學會」)關注到沙中綫項目事件持續帶給整個社會、港鐵公司及整體工程界的衝擊。學會歡迎政府決定採取迅速而果斷的行動。

學會不會就政府當局在新聞稿中所引述發現的屋宇圖則差異發表評論,但從表面上相信證據必須非常充分和有力,而且應該是有足夠理由要求港鐵公司立即改變高級管理層,並向執法部門再次報案作出調查。因此,學會期望當局作出迅速調查及處理這事件,以恢復市民對相關工程及工程界從業人員的信心。

對於像沙中綫這樣規模龐大的工程項目,需要六百至七百名監督人員去監管大約五千到六千名從業人員,其複雜性不難理解。在這方面,學會深信港鐵公司應會提供足夠的法律支援,並讓三名已離職的工程總經理去獲得所需資料,以保障他們的權利去澄清事件,即使他們已離開了港鐵公司。畢竟,任何事故都是發生在他們在職工作期間,亦應涵蓋於相關港鐵工程項目誠投的專業保險。

學會重申對若被裁定犯有不誠實或欺詐行為的會員,不論其資歷,學會不會容忍及定會採取適當與相應的紀律行動及處分,這包括將他們驅逐出學會。

香港工程師學會回應沙中綫事件(補充)


(香港,二零一八年八月八日) 香港工程師學會(下稱「學會」)收到不少媒體查詢為何黃會長並沒有署名於今早的聲明,因此懷疑黃會長已辭任會長一職。事實上我們收到黃會長指示,他不會就相關沙中綫工程發表任何意見或評論。另外黃會長亦已致函所有學會會員,在他向港鐵辭職後將會全身投入會務事宜。

如因此有任何混亂引起,我們表示歉意。

The HKIE’s Response to the Shatin to Central Link Incident


(8 August 2018, Hong Kong) The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) is disturbed of the turmoil caused by the Shatin to Central Link (SCL) incident that has brought to the public, the MTR Corporation Limited (MTRCL), and the engineering profession as a whole. The HKIE concurs with the government in taking immediate and decisive actions to settle this issue.

 

The HKIE is not in a position to comment over the discrepancies in relevant drawings as alleged. It appears though, they must be of some sufficient and strong evidence, and with firm grounds for the government to demand the MTRCL redressing the senior management, and again reporting the incident to the law enforcement agency for further investigation. As such, the Institution opines the facts of this matter could be elucidated soon enough in restoring the public confidence in the relevant SCL project and the engineering profession.

 

A complex project as SCL, would require some 600 to 700 supervisory staff to supervise 5,000 to 6,000 working staff. The HKIE believes that the MTRCL will provide relevant legal assistance to the three concerned general managers who have left their posts, and allow their acquisition of necessary information to protect their rights in making clarification of the incident, considering that the matters of the incident occurred during their tenure of employment, which should also be covered under the professional insurance purchased for the MTRCL project.

 

The HKIE will reiterate that should any member be found guilty of dishonesty or fraud, the Institution would not accept such conduct and would take appropriate disciplinary actions, including expulsion from the Institution, regardless of the qualifications of the member.

香港工程師學會成立專責專家小組 跟進「沙中綫」鋼筋接駁工程事件 The HKIE Sets up an Expert Task Force for the “Shatin to Central Link” Steel Bar Installation Incident

(香港,二零一八年七月五日) 香港工程師學會(下稱「學會」)非常關注近日有關大型鐵路工程質量的傳媒報導,支持香港政府就港鐵沙中綫的鋼筋接駁工程,成立獨立調查委員會跟進,以釋公眾疑慮。為維護業界專業水平和回應公眾關注,學會理事會決定成立專責專家小組,研究現行專業守則,並會就公眾對有關事件提出的疑問,從專業角度提供意見和作出解說。

 

香港工程項目能達至國際的質量要求與安全水平,乃屬公眾的合理期望;專業人士秉持嚴謹操守,亦是香港的核心價值。作為代表本地工程界並擁有法定地位的專業團體,學會高度重視業界的專業水平,期望工程的質量與安全都符合標準。學會根據會章及紀律規章處理學會會籍的申請和紀律程序,致力維持專業水平,並對違反專業操守人士作出懲處。

 

沙中綫鋼筋接駁工程的報導近日引起公眾廣泛關注,亦引起了一些對本地工程業界專業水平的討論。學會成立的專責專家小組,將會研究與專業水平和操守的相關議題,同時為公眾提供專業意見,避免公眾產生不必要的誤解。

 

專責專家小組由李行偉教授、工程師,區達光教授、工程師和楊建明工程師組成,他們都擁有豐富的建造和結構工程專業知識和經驗。小組會待獨立調查委員會完成調查並發表報告後,研究並作出建議。若獨立調查委員會發現事件牽涉個別人士專業失當,學會亦會按既定機制作出跟進。

 

香港工程界多年來認真、嚴謹地為每項工程把關,讓香港工程項目贏得國際美譽,得到市民信賴。學會期望小組能夠為業界把脈,提供寶貴意見,維護業界聲譽和公眾信心。

 

由於今次事件與學會會長黃唯銘博士、工程師的個人工作事務有關,上述安排與相關後續工作,均交由高級副會長余錫萬工程師全權跟進,黃會長不會參與其中。

附件一:專責專家小組成員資料


 

(5 July 2018, Hong Kong) The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) is very concerned about the media reports on the quality of the latest large-scale rail project, and supports the Government’s initiative to set up an independent commission of inquiry on the steel bar installation incident of the Shatin to Central Link. To uphold the industry standard and alleviate public concerns, the HKIE decides to set up an expert task force to study the existing code of practice and to provide expert opinion and explanation on public enquiries on the subject matter.

 

It is a reasonable expectation that projects in Hong Kong attain international quality and safety standards. To maintain a high professional standard is also the core value of Hong Kong. As the local engineering professional body set up by the Ordinance, the HKIE values highly the professional standard and in turn maintains the quality and safety standard for projects that are developed and built in Hong Kong. The HKIE handles membership applications and disciplinary actions in accordance with the Constitution and Disciplinary Regulations. Disciplinary actions will be taken for those who fail to observe the professional conduct.

 

The latest media reports on the steel bar installation incident of Shatin to Central Link have aroused public concerns and raised queries on the professional standard of local engineering profession. In this regard, the HKIE decides to set up an expert task force to study the professional standard and conduct arising from this incident. At the same time, to mitigate unnecessary misunderstanding on the matter, the HKIE will provide professional opinions and explanations on enquiries related to the profession.

 

The task force is comprised of Ir Prof Joseph Lee, Ir Prof Francis Au, and Ir K M Yeung. Together they have ample professional knowledge and experience on building and structural engineering. After the release of the investigation report by the independent commission of inquiry, the task force will study and make recommendations to the HKIE. Should misconduct of any individual member be found, the HKIE would follow up in accordance with the existing mechanism.

 

The engineering industry takes each and every project in a serious and professional manner. That is why Hong Kong engineering projects have won international reputation and trust of Hong Kong people. The HKIE is highly concerned on the quality of the latest project and hope the task force will take the pulse of the industry and offer their opinion to maintain the industry’s reputation and public trust.


Due to the private professional practice of President Ir Dr Philco Wong, Senior Vice President Ir Ringo Yu will follow up on this case and Ir Dr Wong will not be involved.
