Hong Kong Updates Workplace Fatality Report Form

The Hong Kong Labour Department has revised Section 15 of its Employees' Compensation Ordinance -- the section that addresses employers' duties to report the death of any employee or an accident resulting in an employee's death or incapacity. The revised section concerns details to be reported if the employer is a subcontractor or a subsidiary of a holding company and is covered by an insurance policy taken out by the group of companies to which it belongs.

Employers in Hong Kong must file this report with the Commissioner of Labour in duplicate within seven days of a fatal accident and within 14 days of an injury accident that is covered by this section. The form, available in English at www.labour.gov.hk/eng/form/ecd/pdf/f2.pdf, requires the employer to detail how the incident occurred, the name and address of the insurance company providing coverage at the time of the accident, the employee's average working days per month and compensation, compensation paid to an injured worker if he and the employer agreed to a direct settlement, and specific injuries suffered.

Part II is a further breakdown of the incident and the equipment involved; it must be completed if the accident occurred at a construction site. A supplementary form asks for additional information if the incident involved a fall from height.
