2022 Occupational Safety and Health Achievements
Non-Profit Safety and Health Promotion – Kuansin E Family
Since Kuanyin Chemical Fiber Plant established the Kuansin E Family in 2017, the plant has been assisting the government in the promotion of occupational safety and health management. The 2022 implementations are as follows:
1. On September 14, 2022, the Office of Labor Inspection of Taoyuan City Government invited Kuanyin Chemical Fiber Plant to co-host a campus occupational safety program at Chih Ping Junior High School. During the event, the plant provided an immersive VR experience for students and guided them to understand hazard recognition and prevention. The falls simulated through the VR devices illustrated the severity of the hazard and the importance of using PPE. After the event, Taoyuan City Government presented the certificate of appreciation to acknowledge Kuanyin Chemical Fiber Plant for co-hosting the program.
2. On November 10, 2022, the plant attended the 2022 Digital Occupational Safety and Health Sustainability Seminar held by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Ministry of Labor (OSHA). The lectures helped the plant learn from the practices of its industry peers, including safety and health improvements, production safety management and self-governance implementations. The exchange helped Kuanyin Chemical Fiber Plant to further improve occupational safety and health.
3. The plant helps members of the Kuansin E Family diagnose occupational safety and health issues and proposes improvement measures. As of the end of November 2022, the plant had provided 59 recommendations for improvements mainly associated with equipment and facility safety protection as well as regulatory management. Among them, 58 recommendations have been implemented and completed, reaching 98.3% in the improvement rate. Compared to the previous year, the total cases that require recommendations were down by seven, and the improvement rate increased noticeably by 1.3%.
Kuanyin Chemical Fiber Plant has been involved in the implementation of the Safety and Health Family Program for small and medium enterprises since 2020, and has seen dramatic improvement in terms of reducing safety and health deficiencies. The program has heightened staff awareness and helped them reduce such deficiencies through construction improvement or administrative management. It has also helped foster a workplace culture that values occupational safety and health.
The plant has demonstrated notable results three years into the safety and health family program. As a recognition for such effort, the plant received the merit award from Bo-Chang Li, Deputy Director-General of OSHA, during the 2022 Digital Occupational Safety and Health Sustainability Seminar.
