HSEO wins Triple Gold Award for Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme

The Health, Safety and Environment Office (HSEO) has once again been selected as a Triple Gold Award recipient of Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme 2018 organized by the Hong Kong Internet Registration Corporation Limited (HKIRC). The Scheme was initiated by the Office of Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) and the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) in 2013. Starting from 2018, the HKIRC has taken up to organize the new round of the Scheme while OGCIO serves as the co-organizer and EOC as the independent advisor. HSEO has been a recipient of the Gold Award since the inception of this Scheme.

 

Since then, HSEO and ITS have been promoting this to other departments for website development. The Scheme aims to encourage adoption of web accessibility to facilitate access to online information and services by all segments of the community including persons with disabilities.
