Health and Safety
Through analysis of management on occupational health and safe production of 2016, we further have determined the Group’s direction for improving occupational health and safety for 2017 based on the previous successful experience, arranged emergency drills for employees, strengthened the promotion of self-help knowledge, provided external training for employees to learn about first-aid knowledge, and established a social responsibility working group to organize annual safety inspections and pre-holiday safety inspections.
We have built a clear organizational structure of safety production management and established a safety management committee. The Group fully applied the “OHSAS18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System” and “ISO14001 Environmental Management System”. Based on the actual condition of the Group, we have established 29 procedures and management documents in various categories, covering emergency management, fire control management, dangerous goods management, construction management, safety training and safety production inspection, so as to implement safety management in all aspects.
