Abstract

In late February 2023, the Hong Kong government committed to fully implementing the Smart Site Safety System (SSSS) on a specific amount of public works for the Construction Industry in Hong Kong. Though the government supports a significant push by the public sector, it is foreseeable that different levels of challenges may be encountered at this initial stage of system development. This study focuses on studying the effect of the implementation of SSSS in the industry and discusses the challenges it will face. The study will include interviews with industry professionals in four fields, including those responsible for creating and selecting systems, training, supervision, implementation and execution. Therefore, interviews with these professionals are conducted to share their views and the doubts raised in the industry and opinions on the solutions and division of labour at various levels to understand better the implementation of a safe and smart construction site system.
