Providing a safe, comfortable and hygienic workplace while looking out for the well-being of our employees are important concerns for the companies. We have established a Safety and Health Committee to overlook occupational safety and health management system. The committee meets every quarter. The committee members include occupational safety personnel, department heads, engineers, technical personnel, resident nurse, and labor union representatives. They convene to discuss and implement the occupational safety and health policies, coordination and management of various educational training plans and the implementations, environmental plans and follow-ups, and health management and occupational disease prevention, and occupational accident investigation report, and assessment management performance.

To allow our employees to become more familiar with the operation of the occupational safety and health management system, we entrust consultants to provide relevant education training and perform site surveys such as hazard analysis and risk assessment, contractor management and change in management. Through drills and on-site training, our employees gain a deeper understanding of occupational safety and health; thus, we create a safer and healthier workplace.

 

Each year, we invite the firefighters of Fire Bureau of Taichung City Shalu Station to Shalu and Taichung Harbor plants to hold a fire prevention training course and conduct a fire drill. The training included learning about different types of fire, planning primary emergency escape route and contingency routes, fire preventions, and crisis management. A hands-on experience on how to put out a fire.

Work safety concerns and occupational accident prevention are important to us. We continue to reduce risk factors at our workplace, and we regularly conduct training workshops in occupational safety and health management. The training courses emphasized on the prevention of caught injuries due to the high occurrence rate.

 

Total work hours in 2020 were 1,017,936 hours. There were 7 occupational accidents:2 incidents of staircase slip and sprained injury; 1 incident of chemical burn; 1 incident of caught by the machine; 3 traffic accidents coming and leaving from work. The above accidents caused a loss of 124 workdays as temporary total disability. No accidents occurred to our independent contractors while contracted by our company. Our disabling frequency rate has dropped from 5.88 in 2019 to 2.71 in 2020, and the frequency severity indication also lowered from 0.80 in 2019 to 0.65 in 2020.

Responding to occupational accidents, we provide basic first aid to injured employees on the spot then seek for emergency medical services to minimize the risk of further injury. In compliance with the laws, the injured employees receive compensations in wages and medical expenses, and emotional support. We assess and evaluate the causes of accidents to prevent them from happening again in the future. We found that the key factor contributing to these incidents was that employees did not abide 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 provided traffic safety education and training courses to improve and raise awareness among employees.
