Specific Measures in health and safety management

> E.S.H > Safety and Health Planning and Management > Specific Measures in health and safety management

Our Safety and health management system applies a pre-review approach:

1.Risk assessment: safety and health risk assessments are conducted on a periodic triennial basis, and whenever any new processes are in development or introduced, such as with the introduction of new chemicals, machinery and equipment, with deployment of all appropriate precautionary measures or other necessary controls to reduce risks to within an acceptable range.

2.Regulatory compliance: all updated safety and health regulations are reviewd quarterly, with compliance audits every six months, to ascertain impacts or areas in need of improvement, and undertake health and safety risk assessment, to minimize possible impacts , ensuring corporate compliance with all laws and regulatory requirement, with all such periodic assessments published on our corporate intraweb.

3.Establishing objectives, target areas and management plans: to ensure implementation of our environmental and safety and health policies, we rely on risk assessment and regulatory compliance audits, to establish priority areas for risk improvement efforts, and where the regulatory environment does not conform to stakeholder expectations, we establish additional safety and health guidelines to continually improve our workplace environmental safety and health risks, while enhancing our corporate safety and health performance.

Work environment and personal safety protection measures

In production activities and service, we have established the following protection measures for a safe, clean, and comfortable work environment:

 

1. Plant safety

  1. The safest and most appropriate zoning is implemented based on production needs in the plant area. These zones include the operation zone, storage zone, equipment zone, and office zone to ensure employees can carry out their work in a safe space.
  2. In addition to the automatic fire alarm system, we have equipped fire detectors, fire extinguishers, and fire hydrants thorough the plant and the fire detector central control in the security guard duty area for 24-hour surveillance.
  3. We establish safety rules and safety guidelines for operation to ensure operation accuracy, employee safety, and product quality, such as protection measures for devices, machines, and facilities.
  4. The factory building is equipped with mechanical security facilities and broadcast systems, and clearly indicated emergency exists as specified by the law.
  5. Fire equipment, protective equipment, and alarm systems are maintained periodically to ensure operability at all times.

 

2. Operation environment and employee safety

  1. Hazardous substances, dangerous goods, and organic solvents are segregated, labeled, and equipped with warning signs.
  2. Workplace identification and the provision of appropriate work environments, such as temperature, humidity, brightness, ventilation, cleanliness, and so on.
  3. For the concern of employee health, we arrange periodic health examinations for employees, including general and special health examinations. General health examinations refer to the employee health examinations specified by the occupational health and safety regulations. The frequency of general health examinations is once every two years. Special health examinations are arranged for employees working in special workplaces, such as dust, noise, ionized radiation, and dimethylformamide. They are arranged once a year.

 

3. Facility safety and safety awareness fortification

  1. Water foundations in the plant are cleaned, filters are replaced, and water quality is examined regularly.
  2. A safety protection system is established and workforce and equipment are carefully planned. An emergency response organization is established with different teams assigned with different duties. Exercises are held regularly.
  3. Safety and health education and training activities: Safety and health education and training activities are arranged and implemented based on the annual safety and health demands. These activities including new employee, in-service, and disaster prevention training. We outsource training for employees operating dangerous machinery and equipment and require them to obtain the certificate of pass. We also arrange professional training for special personnel, such as personnel engaging in occupational safety and health management personnel, first aid, and organic solvent operation. By doing so, we ensure the close connection between production and safety and health.

Contractors Safety and health management

To ensure the safety of factory workers on the construction and to maintain the surrounding environment, the Company has established relevant management system and E- management system for contractors. Prior to the co-operation, the contractors would sign the “contractors’ safety, health and hygiene agreement” and complete the safety and health training to ensure that prior, during, and after the operations are in accordance to the regulations. We also require that, before the construction, the applicant is required to fill the “Contractor work permit and construction environment risk form”, and asking the safety and health unit to provide us with a security guard office to be used as a basis for inspection. Construction personnel entering the plant must swipe card and have ID checked before being accompanied into the plant by the applying section supervisor. Those persons who have not undergone or passed safety and health education and training must complete the related education and training and receive certification before applying for a temporary construction pass and entry together into the plant area with the applying section supervisor.


Product liability insurance

We endeavor to ensure all our products comply with international guidelines, and concomitantly provide adequate protection for our consumer's rights. So since 2005, we have sought reputable international insurance firms to provide us with full comprehensive product liability insurance coverage. Since most of our production involve active and passive frequency components, product or functional losses (poor frequency vibrations or incapacitance), are unlikely to mean for our distribution channels and ultimate consumers any physical injuries. Thus, we have obtained product liability insurance, to meet the highest ethical requirements, thereby rightly improving our corporate image in line with our international competitors, while sharing any risks and responsibilities from our distribution channels.
