Creating a safe and friendly workplace is our purpose. Understanding current situations, identifying potential hazards, assessing risks, and abiding to the relevant regulations are the building blocks in setting an occupational safety and health management system. We continue to systematically improve the operating procedures and the working environment to reduce the potential hazards and employee exposures. Shalu plant and Taichung Harbor Plant successfully obtained ISO 45001: 2018 and CNS 45001: 2018 certifications in October 2019.

Total work hours in 2019 were 1,020,792 hours. There were 9 occupational accidents: 2 incidents of caught in machinery happened while replacing and checking the equipment; 2 incidents of lacerations happened during operating and cleaning the equipment; 1 incident of muscle strain happened while moving load; 1 incident of falling happened during physical inventory count; 3 traffic accidents (not occupational-related hazards). All of the above accidents caused a loss of 197 workdays as they were categorized as temporary total disability. No accidents occurred for our independent contractors while contracted by our company.

In response to occupational accidents, we provided basic first aid to injured employees on the spot then seeked for emergency medical services to minimize the risk of further injury. We assessed the situation to evaluate and analyzed the causes of accidents. According to the laws, the injured employees receive compensations in wages, and medical expenses as well as emotional support to ensure they have proper care while injured. After identifying the causes of these accidents, we found that the key factor
contributing to these incidents was not abiding by the operating guidelines as prescribed. Therefore, education and training courses would be the focal point in the management of occupational safety and health. For the traffic accidents occurred to and from work, we off eredtraffi c safety education and training classes to improve and raise awareness among employees.
