[Distinguished Public Officers] Carrie, Chief Environmental Protection Inspector of Environmental Protection Department

Winner of The Ombudsman’s Awards 2020 for Officers of Public OrganisationsWong Ka Lai, Carrie, Chief Environmental Protection Inspector (Regional South) of Environmental Protection Department“Take action promptly with perseverance and determination.” (The video is in Cantonese) "On an afternoon in 2018, a large amount of milky water was discharged into the Shau Kei Wan Typhoon Shelter. Shortly afterwards, numerous complaints and enquiries reached me and my team. I immediately deployed staff to collect water samples and led other team members to trace the source of contamination. At the site, we saw that a whole stretch of the Typhoon Shelter had turned white, but the discharge had already stopped by that time, making it more difficult to trace the source. Losing no time in gathering evidence, we finally identified a construction site on the flat roof of a housing estate as the possible source." "Despite the challenges in the investigation, my team and I worked with determination and didn’t give up. In the following week, we visited the site every day to gather evidence, and reconstructed the sequence of events despite the absence of witnesses. Eventually, we not only successfully prosecuted the main contractor and subcontractor concerned but also monitored their extraction of residual milky water from the stormwater drains to prevent further pollution of the Typhoon Shelter."

Senior Health Inspector

The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) is responsible for the inspection of food safety and food premises, the enforcement of food-related legislation and monitoring the public cleansing service. Having been working at FEHD for 24 years, Health Inspector Yuan Wai-lun was assigned to take on various duties and has recently been charged with health promotion duties. As a Health Inspector, Yuan maintains close contact with the public. He said that most likely people would not say thank you for their assistance directly. But eventually they would let FEHD know it had done a good job. To qualify as a Health Inspector, a candidate is required to hold a Higher Diploma in Environmental Health from the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE) or equivalent, plus grade 2 or above in both Chinese and English subjects in HKCEE. But what Yuan considered to be the most important attributes of a candidate are a passion for public service and a sense of mission. A health inspector should also have excellent communication skills and the ability to enforce the law in an impartial manner. Organisation chart
