safety and disaster prevention protocols are strictly enforced

Petroleum products and natural gas are highly flammable substances. In handling them, CPC has consequently always placed heavy emphasis on safe working practice as well as specific fire prevention measures. That is vital to maintaining continuity in its operations, protecting its employees from harm and safeguarding lives and property in the communities adjacent to the company’s workplaces. Apart from compliance with Taiwan’s relevant laws and regulations, CPC has also drafted – and strictly enforces – its own workplace safety and

disaster prevention protocols. These are modeled on those of the advanced countries in the EU, as well as the USA and Japan, and have been suitably adapted to reflect local conditions and operational characteristics.

A safe workplace for everyone: fulfilling safety and health policy objectives​

Industrial safety is the foundation of corporate development. CPC has a goal in that respect, sloganized as ‘100% industrial safety, 0% accidents’ and to achieve it has adopted policies that will deliver a universally safe workplace, enlightened risk management and general concern for employees’ state of health. The company is constantly working to beef up its workplace safety culture through the implementation of basic and well-tried disciplines – such as thorough inspection, concern for employees’ well-being, responsive healthcare, informed risk management and systematized operations – in which employee buy-in and continuous, incremental improvement are 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 several times been a recipient of the annual Excellence in Promotion of Occupational Safety and Health awards from Taiwan’s Ministry of Labor.

KEY POINTS IN CPC’S INDUSTRIAL SAFETY & HEALTH POLICIES

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.
  • By classifying its identifiable emergency scenarios, CPC has developed the appropriate specific emergency response drills and regularly conducts emergency simulations to strengthen its contingency and disaster prevention capacity. A total of 310 emergency response drills were held in 2018, including eight in the no-warning category and four expanded exercises.
