Powerchip Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp.(PSMC) adheres to a culture of safety and promotes the standard that "Safety and hygiene are not extras but are an important part of everyone's work" so all employees develop active safety habits. It is important to drive home a "Keep your working hands safe and secure" mentality into the minds of every worker. By doing this the employees will develop the values of positive safety and active improvement. By implementing standard operating procedures and checkpoint controls, both the plant and workplace environment are well protected.
In addition to providing sufficient resources and support from supervisors at all levels, the department is also encouraged to take the initiative to participate in the proposal improvement and training discussions. By taking this initiative and using it as the immediate starting point, PSMC wants “zero work injury” as the expectation for everyone. All are called to improve their awareness of one's self, the environment, the machines, and the products, in order to strengthen the overall safety of the individual, colleagues, manufacturers, guests, and everyone at the facility
The essence of this safety culture has the following characteristics:
Safety and Health Management Strategy
The company integrates the requirements of ISO14001, OHSAS18001 and TOSHMS into the Environmental Safety and Security Management System for PSMC and certifies the company's regular audit and verification requirements. Through the integration of safety, health, environmental protection, fire protection, security, and insurance, the Risk Management Division is responsible for the corporate culture of the executive and everyone, and forms a solid foundation for security management.
Essential risk management
In line with the spirit of continuous improvement of the Environmental Safety Management System, the operations of the plant areas, capacity planning, and abnormal accidents are identified in order to update risk identification. If the overall environmental hazard and chemical hazard operation risk result is high, then the Safety and Environmental Protection Committee will evaluate and discuss a resolution to ensure that all hazards are within an effective control scope to allow colleagues to work in a safe environment.
Deep-rooted Active Safety Culture
PSMC is achieving a "positive safety culture" through the development of safety habits and
Personalized functional training
The plan makes all colleagues aware of the types of safety and health education training courses that should be completed by all employees and the time required for completion. In addition to arranging the physical courses, PSMC produces its own courses in risk management - more than 200 courses! Through the "Education and Training Electronic System", the courses can be used to learn and actively track the training cycle anytime anywhere. Colleagues can directly enquire about their own training courses and receive confirmation through the system.
Improve operational risk mastery
By integrating information from the contractor's electronic management system, the Special Operation Permit Application System, and the Access Control Management System through the processing of the system's Real-time Information System, the output of the Special Operation Risk Matrix Map can quickly and clearly grasp the risk imposed by a contractor's entering the factory.
Instant Chemical Hazard Risk Management
From the perspective of the life cycle management of chemical use, it should be divided into risks and control measures during the stages of chemical introduction, chemical storage, chemical use, chemical disposal, and brush barcode operations through the chemical collar/use process. The information from each stage is incorporated into the electronic system of chemical safety management to effectively control the use/storage of chemical information in the plant.
Plant Disaster Prevention System Integration Decision
The Integrated Disaster Prevention System can grasp the most opportune time of emergency rescue when an anomaly occurs. The Emergency Response Center or factory department duty supervisor monitors the safety status of the plant at all hours. If hazardous material is properly disposed of the first time, personal injury and environmental pollution can be lessened. At the lowest level, equipment losses can be significantly reduced and plant resilience can be improved.
