The Labour Affairs Bureau pledged to continue to intensify its efforts to promote occupational health and safety and strengthen dialogue and cooperation between workers’ associations, organizations and contractors.

The statement added the contractor “can only resume work after receiving approval from the Labour Affairs Bureau”.
