We will share the working environment and identifying the job hazards to the workers’ families aiming to enhance the workers’ safety awareness by the direct and positive influence from their family members. In CGC Safety Fun Day 2015, one of the visited workers in Home Visit Scheme was invited to share his feeling of the Home Visit Scheme to the guests. This worker reminded other workers to always stay alert to safety and promoting the site safety culture to their co-workers.
