Implementation of Safety and Health Supervision and Management

To ensure that safety and health are effectively managed and monitored, we encourage employees to call our internal 1911 service line immediately if they find any safety and health issues in the workplace that could affect them. At the same time, employees can use the labor-management meeting to propose safety and health improvement suggestions, and the responsible unit will evaluate and respond to the proposals according to their content. In addition, the ESH Team conducts an annual hazard assessment of the activities and service areas of all workers in the organization. At the same time, ESH Team conducts risk and opportunity assessment by investigating the needs and expectations of stakeholders. The ESH Team also sets management objectives for high-risk and high-opportunity items and propose a management plan, and track the implementation progress through regular meetings on a quarterly basis. 

We take every accident in the workplace seriously. When an accident is reported, we provide health care to the injured employee, initiate investigation with labor representatives, develop corrective measures and conduct internal promotion to prevent recurrence of the accident.

Strengthening Safety and Health Participation and Awareness

We believe that in order to build a safe and hygienic workplace culture, it is essential to strengthen the safety and health awareness of workers. We disseminate safety and health information through multiple channels such as internal and external meetings, education training, health education, and health promotion activities to raise employees' awareness of safety and health, and to remind them that if they encounter hazards in the workplace, their own safety should be their first priority and they should be notified afterwards.   

We also value the participation, consultation and communication of workers. Acer Taiwan has set up an Occupational Safety and Health Committee, which meets quarterly to review and discuss related business activities. In order to enable employees to understand the safety and health management practices and results, we have set up an internal safety and health website and information platform, and at the same time, we are able to communicate with workers immediately in response and feedback to build mutual consensus.

Constructing a Healthy Workplace Culture
