Occupational Safety and Health
We value employees’ safety and health and we improve the work environment and reduce the occurrence of occupational hazards to achieve our goal of “zero harm”.
The plants also established the Occupational Safety and Health Committee which convenes regular meetings to review and adjust occupational safety and health promotion plans. Employees can also participate in making occupational safety and health decisions through labor representatives to ensure that the occupational safety and health policies meet the needs of onsite employees and protect the safety and health of all employees.
The plants have passed the international certification for the OHSAS 18001 Occupational Safety and Health Management System. YFYCPG introduced and converted to the Health, Safety and Environmental Management System which serves as one of the ten pillars of the YFY Excellence System (YES).
We established the 6KE (key element) operation management system for plant operations and procedures and assigned dedicated employees to serve as "Safety Pillar Coordinators". We provide them with the necessary knowledge and skills and rigorously require the full participation of all employees.
We actively use related design tools, machinery, work methods, and work environment designed based on human factors and ergonomics to eliminate human-factor hazards, prevent human-factor harm, and avoid musculoskeletal injuries from repetitive use of muscles in operations.
