Tatung Health and Safety Guidebook
In the case that recognition of dangerous materials is unsatisfactory, or that safety management has not been satisfactorily accomplished in the factories, there may be effects of varying degree to the health and safety work, and as a result, causing frequent disasters. This will not only threaten the safety of employees, but also the safety of the publics, as well as adversely impact the surrounding environment. Therefore, Tatung stipulates that the company should be in accordance with relevant health and safety regulations in "Company Rules" and holds employees' health examination (free of charge to the employees). Tatung also issues "Tatung Health and Safety Guidebook" to employees in order to raise their awareness regarding to occupational risks.
Health and Safety Committee
Tatung holds "Health and Safety Committee" meetings in headquarter and factories to communicate and review the contents and progress of health and safety issues. The percentage of labor representatives is better than the requirement of regulation (at least 33%). The headquarter also organizes regular health and safety committee meetings and invites the representatives in the factories to enhance the communications within the company.

In order to raise the awareness of occupational health and safety among the employees and prevent occupational accidents, Tatung opens health and safety related training classes for new recruits, general employees, and managers in headquarter. The training classes introduce the related health and safety regulations such as "Occupational Safety and Health Act" and demonstrate the prevention measures of the occupational disasters. The factories and subsidiaries also organize training courses for the needs of the business operations such as VOCs & Designated Chemicals class, Job Safety Analysis class, Fork lifters and Stationary Cranes training class, etc.
As for regulation promotion, Tatung organizes "Tatung Corporate OHS Seminar" every year. The seminar was held in March 2018 and the topic was introducing labor health protection act amendment and case study on occupational accidents.
