Challenges

The company places importance in implementing measures related to health and safety in the workplace with efficiency
and consistency in order to reduce the risk of accidents resulting in injury and loss among employees, contractors, and members of surrounding communities as well as disruption to business operations.

Execution

The company is concerned with the quality of life and workplace safety of all its employees, including contractors working at its offices and power plants, in line with the vision “to be an accident- and injury-free organization” and a code of business conduct that takes into account occupational health, safety, and environment via the organization’s health and safety measures. In addition, the company has designated Occupational Health and Safety Officers to inspect and improve the workplace environment for safety on a consistent basis, in compliance with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and related safety standards.

Moreover, the company also prioritizes health by offering education to employees and contractors along with annual health examinations. In conjunction with these measures, the company also requires new hires to undergo a health check prior to beginning employment to ensure that all personnel are in good health and capable of performing their duties effectively.

Code of Business Conduct with Regard to Occupational Environment, Safety, and Health
Safety Week Project

The company carried out the Safety Week Project to foster occupational safety awareness among employees through a training program under the topic “Health and Safety in the Work Environment,” aimed at increasing the efficiency of accident prevention in the workplace.

Aside from this, the program also covered the exchange and dissemination of knowledge and operational guidelines among staff, community leaders, and educators through activities such as a poster contest on safety in power plant facilities, safety-related games, an open house for community members, and training on electrical safety. Preliminary results show that the Safety Week Project was successful in promoting safety awareness among employees and strengthening relationships both among members of the organization and between the organization and the community.

Hearing Loss Prevention Project

The company is concerned about the health of employees who operate in high noise areas. Therefore, to ensure the health and safety of personnel, the company has conducted a hearing loss prevention program in conjunction with implementing monitoring, improvement, and hazard prevention measures within areas of power plants that expose employees to noise over the standard of 85 decibels by performing sound surveys to determine areas of potential high noise exposure, setting policies for noise hazard prevention and control, and informing staff of the noise levels of various areas in the power plants, along with offering education and training in accordance with the hearing loss prevention program and providing appropriate and adequate protective equipment for noise exposure.

The company also carries out annual assessment on the efficacy of its hearing loss prevention program conducted by the Occupational Health and Safety Officer, the results of which indicates awareness and caution among personnel when operating within areas that pose a risk of high noise exposure, compliance with hearing loss prevention measures in utilizing the appropriate protective gear at all times when operating in areas of the power plant with noise higher than the accepted standards, and attendance of noise hazard and hearing loss prevention training, along with disclosure of noise hazards and problems with personal noise protective equipment in order to improve the program in subsequent years.
