Industrial Safety & Health


Petroleum products and natural gas are highly flammable substances. In handling them, CPC has consequently always placed heavy emphasis on industrial and health safety, as well as on fire prevention, in order to maintain continuity in its operations, protect its employees from harm and safeguard lives and property in communities surrounding the company’s plants. Apart from compliance with Taiwan’s relevant laws and regulations, CPC has also drafted – and strictly enforces – its own safety and accident-prevention protocols. These are modeled on those of the advanced countries of the EU, the USA and Japan and have been suitably adapted to reflect local conditions and operational characteristics.


Industrial safety is the foundation of corporate development. To achieve its goal of ‘100% industrial safety, zero% accidents’ CPC is constantly and actively strengthening its safety culture through implementation of a policy based on safety disciplines – thorough inspection, concern for employee wellbeing and responsible healthcare, risk management and systematized operations – in which employee buy-in and continuous improvement are the key elements. Accordingly, CPC’s industrial safety performance has been recognized not only at home but also internationally, as is demonstrated by the medal awarded by the World Safety Organization in 2005; and it has often been a recipient of the annual Excellence in Organizational and Personnel Promotion of Occupational Safety and Health awards from Taiwan’s Ministry of Labor.



In line with its emphasis on a culture of industrial safety and healthcare, CPC is putting particular effort into the following focal points. The company is working especially hard at raising awareness of these issues and team spirit among both employees and external vendors in the interest of creating a safe and comfortable working environment.

  • Implementation of the Taiwan Occupational Safety and Health Management System (TOSHMS) together with a continuous process of improvement with respect to its operational environment.
  • Reinforcement of industrial safety practice mandates for contractors and the establishment of contractor self-management in order to reduce    occupational accidents among their employees on CPC sites.
  • In conjunction with the implementation of occupational safety laws, conducting periodic reviews of industrial safety and health regulations as well as continuous review and revision of standard operating procedures.
  • Strengthening industrial health management protocols, scheduling employee health checkups, analysis and tracking of those health checkup results, promotion of a healthy lifestyle and emphasizing the importance of employees’ mental health.
  • Implementation of risk management and process safety control techniques and the establishment of equipment safety management processes – periodic, regular thorough inspection of oil and gas tanks and pipelines and the installation of monitors and leak detection systems along their extended sections.
  • Strengthening of fire prevention and response capabilities, along with the organization of local joint emergency response teams – ensuring that the manpower, facilities and emergency response and rescue gear used by all units are mutually supportive, so as to minimize losses due to fire and other disasters.
  • Implementation of on-site safety inspections with graded results, continuous improvement through observing preparedness at system, equipment and implementation levels; and heightening general awareness of the importance of industrial safety disciplines.
  • Empowering industrial safety inspections with the inclusion of ‘management by walking around’ by senior managers; and by carrying out professional-standard pre-operational industrial safety inspections of new and renovated workplaces, with any and all deficiencies discovered to be tracked through the information system until remedial improvements have been completed.
  • Planning and execution of safety and health training and awareness programs, the development and provision of online study courses and the establishment of an industrial safety test-question database. Additionally there will be the compilation and publication of industrial accident case study-based teaching materials.
  • Reinforcement of the functions of the Safety Information Center, arranging for study material to be available on loan and installation of a system for handling online requests for industrial safety data.
  • By classifying the identified emergencies, CPC has developed various emergency response drills and regularly conducts emergency simulations to strengthen contingency and disaster prevention capacity. In 2017, CPC held a total of 309 disaster prevention drills, 7 emergency response drills without warning and 4 large-scale emergency drills.
