Heart Caring Campaign TVB Interview
April 22, 2024

Recently, there have been several cases of sudden deaths of construction site workers at work in Hong Kong. In the past two years, the construction and security industries had the highest number of non-accidental deaths of employees at work, so what are the reasons for this? And what is the effectiveness of the Heart Caring Campaign launched by the authorities targeting at these two industries?

To raise awareness of the risks of cerebro-cardiovascular diseases (CCVDs) and encourage healthy lifestyles among the frontline workers in the construction and property management industries, the Labour Department and the Occupational Safety and Health Council launched the “Heart Caring Campaign”. Through various health risk assessments, health information and online and offline “Heart Caring” activities, frontline workers are encouraged to establish healthy lifestyles with healthy diets, physical exercises, quit smoking and stress management, etc., thus ”Early Screening”, “Early Prevention” and “Early management” could be made possible regarding any CCVDs related problems and reduce the risks.

KML has signed the Heart Caring Charter since the end of 2022 and has become a Heart Caring Company. We have made a commitment to actively build a healthy workplace and prevent cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases among our employees. Our dedication and efforts have not gone unnoticed. In 2023, KML was honoured to receive the Heart Caring Organisation Award - Outstanding Organisation. We are delighted to share that our company has been invited to share our experience on TVB's "A Closer Look" program. This incredible opportunity allows us to inspire others and provide valuable insights on preventing cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases in the workplace.

Hong Kong Council on Smoking and Health (“COSH”) organised the Hong Kong Smoke-free Leading Company Awards (“the Awards”) together with the Occupational Safety and Health Council (“OSHC”) and Radio 1 of Radio Television Hong Kong (“RTHK”) in 2023.

KML Engineering Limited (“KML”) is honoured to receive the Hong Kong Smoke-free Leading Company Awards 2023 Gold Award. This recognition is a testament to our unwavering commitment to creating a smoke-free environment and promoting a healthier lifestyle for our employees.

 

KML implemented a smoke-free policy as early as 20 years ago. In light of this accomplishment, our Deputy Managing Director Mr. Eric Luk had the privilege of being interviewed by media, where we had the opportunity to share our company's journey towards becoming a smoke-free leading company.

Employees can leave their seats to stretch and watch smoking cessation videos to learn about the scourge of smoking while doing Zero-time Exercise.

 

Additionally, we have taken proactive steps to create awareness and educate our employees. In the pantry area, we play informative smoke-free videos that highlight the benefits of a smoke-free lifestyle and provide smoking cessation information, such as quit hotlines and assistance organisations.

December 29, 2023

KML Engineering Limited (“KML”) has consistently embraced our commitment to social responsibility, with a particular focus on nurturing and supporting the growth of the youth.

The bespoke work experience programme orchestrated by KML proved both intensive and rewarding. KML assigned four colleagues as mentors to share the professional knowledge required on the job with the students. This mentorship involved sharing insights into various professional aspects, enabling students to actively participate in day-to-day software development, attend pivotal engineering meetings, gain insights into product embedding processes, and contribute to quality control and testing efforts. KML has been focusing on the research and development of Automatic Fare Collection System for years.

They were sincerely impressed by the meticulousness of the staff.

Beyond the professional realm, our colleagues fostered a mentorship that transcended the workplace, organising lunch gatherings that facilitated open discussions. These sessions were instrumental in helping students discover their personal interests, gain an understanding of diverse job roles within the engineering sector, and explore potential career paths. Students conveyed that this experience not only deepened their comprehension of corporate operations and employer expectations but also instilled the right work attitudes and values, preparing them effectively for their future endeavors and allowing them to savor the satisfaction of successful work.

KML is honoured to be part of the Programme, collaborating with students and gaining valuable insights into the career aspirations of the younger generation. This experience will inform adjustments to our company's employee training strategies. Looking ahead, KML remains committed to making positive contributions to the community in various aspect.

The First Open-air EV Charging Station in Tai O Officially Opened KML Actively Supports the Government to Promote Green Transportation Policy
January 30, 2023

The car park located on Tai O Road near Tai O Bus Terminus has recently completed the installation of electric vehicle (“EV”) charging infrastructure, becoming the first public EV charging station in Tai O. This EV charging station not only benefits the residents in Tai O, but visitors to Tai O can also use it for free. On the day of charging station was put into operation, the residents were eager to use it immediately, which showed that the EV charging facilities were very popular among the public!

KML Engineering Limited (“KML”) was pleased to undertake this project, providing professional services in the design, installation, testing and project management for the EV charging station. This is a brand-new, design flexible and socially inclusive medium EV charging station, comprising charging piles equipped with 2 or 3 chargers according to the needs, and a designated charging point for the disabled person. The ingenious layout design not only saves space but also supports simultaneous charging for multiple electric vehicles. In the consideration that EV charging station is in proximity to the coastal area and in an open-air suburban environment, KML also deliberately incorporated these considerations into the design of the charging pile to enhance the water-resistance and anti-collision capabilities of the charging facilities. 

The number of first registrations of electric private cars in Hong Kong has been growing rapidly in the past few years, and the supply of EV charging parking spaces cannot keep pace with the demand. KML welcomed the EV-charging at Home Subsidy Scheme (“EHSS”) which launched by the government and subsidised the installation of EV charging-enabling infrastructure (EVCEI) in the car parks of the private residential buildings, and has already actively participated in the tendering works of EHSS consultancy services. Looking ahead, KML will continue to connect with more organisations for the provision of good quality EV charging infrastructure installation solutions and professional consultancy services, further promoting green driving for vehicular carbon emission reduction and making Hong Kong a greener and more sustainable city.

During our contract works in some stations of the Tung Chung line, our Project Team devoted to improving the system design in addition to carrying out basic modification and replacement work. The Team’s effort had brought significant improvement to the reliability of the entire smoke curtain system, which impressed our customer and led us to gain another opportunity this time. We were honored to win another contract for similar nature in some stations of the East Rail Line and West Rail Line. Our Project Team will actively face any challenges not only to ensure the smooth progress of the project, but also minimize disturbance to the normal operation of the stations.

KML Engineering ‘s green footprint in Refurbishment and Replacement of AHU and PAU project
April 01, 2021

The air conditioning systems play an important role in enabling a pleasant journey when traveling by the MTR trains through maintaining a comfortable environment in the MTR stations.

Comparing to a traditional centrifugal fan, an array of smaller fan units named Fan Grid offers more possibilities to noise control and flexible maintenance. In addition, the use of EC plug fans in air conditioning system is the latest energy-saving technology. Together with the introduction of PMSM, a motor with higher efficiency in its performance, energy consumption is going to be significantly reduced. KML Engineering always cares about the environment and is pleased to have the role to incorporate green elements into our engineering projects.
