Challenges and Opportunities
Occupational health and safety is one of the fundamental keystones in how GC conducts its business. Inappropriate safety management can cause disruption to the production process and affect the operation of our stakeholders along the supply chain. In order to become the leader in sustainability management, GC has developed a safety management infrastructure and guideline as well as strengthens employee safety awareness internally and externally, which include all types of activities carried out by employees and contractors through cultivating safety culture in process safety management, and personal safety management, in order to streamline our safety operations as well as to avoid any incidents.
Occupational Health and Safety Management
GC creates the safety structures and procedures ensuring the personal safety, the process safety as well as safety risk assessment for employees and subcontractors by having the expertise in Quality, Safety, Health and Environment: QSHE to evaluate the outcome periodically. GC has developed a safety management infrastructure and guideline that coincides with GC Management System (GCMS), Process Safety Management (PSM) and ISO 45001. GC also strengthens employee safety awareness both within and outside the organization, which include all types of activities carried out by employees, contractors and key suppliers, in order to streamline our safety operations as well as to achieve the ultimate goal of becoming a Zero Accident Organization.
