Health and Safety Workplace

Health and Safety Management

Employee health is a top priority and key consideration for AcBel. Creating a safe and healthy work environment that protects employees from potential health and safety hazards is one of the company's core objectives. AcBel focuses on five aspects: "Health Management and Promotion," "Disaster Prevention and Handling," "Occupational Health and Safety Risk Management," "Occupational Health and Safety Education and Training," and "Occupational Disease Prevention and Control." These guidelines aim to build a workplace environment with "Zero Discrimination, Zero Bullying, Zero Work-Related Injuries, Zero Occupational Accidents, and Zero Pollution." This approach ensures that all employees receive comprehensive care for their physical and mental well-being, enhances the overall competitiveness of the company, and also safeguards the well-being of contractors and employees from on-site contractors.

Apart from adhering to the RBA (Responsible Business Alliance) Code of Conduct, AcBel has also implemented ISO 14001 Environmental Management System and ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System. By following the regulatory framework, the company identifies hazardous sources, assesses risks, and develops preventive or mitigation plans to enhance employee safety and reduce the occurrence of workplace hazards, thereby creating a better and safer work environment.

In addition to complying with Taiwanese legal requirements, AcBel goes beyond local regulations at its other production sites. It establishes "Occupational Safety and Health Committees" following the framework of ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System, which consists of representatives from both labor and management. These committees are responsible for managing occupational safety and health and employee well-being. Through risk prevention, innovation, and continuous improvement, AcBel aims to reduce operational losses and enhance regulatory compliance, thus improving the organization's resilience. In 2022, there were 211 issues related to occupational safety raised and 926 risk identifications and assessments conducted in Taiwan. Through committee discussions, continuous efforts are made to optimize the workplace environment.
