Show safety a priority: Kevin Yeung

The Government will investigate the Hong Kong Coliseum concert incident and adjust existing safety standards if needed to ensure that performances are held safely, Secretary for Culture, Sports & Tourism Kevin Yeung said today.   Meeting the media, Mr Yeung said: “This is an accident that none of us wants to see. It is our responsibility and our determination to make sure that the same incident will not happen again.   “As the owner or the management of this venue, the LCSD (Leisure & Cultural Services Department) has made an agreement with all the hirers on the arrangements of performances.   “Also, the hirer has the prime responsibility to make sure that the set-up is safe - both for all the performers as well as the audience. They also, for any particular set-up on the stage, have to have a professional registered engineer to certify that the set-up is safe for that purpose.   “So for this particular incident, we will embark on a very detailed investigation with (the) support of relevant departments and also some professionals to make sure that we go deep into the cause of the incident and make necessary adjustments, for example, to the procedures as well as to the (safety) standards, to make sure that future performances are safe, both for the performers as well as the audience.”
