Occupational Safety and Health Risk Management

Comprehensive identification of occupational safety and health risks helps to detect potential hazard factors early, and annual management plans assist in controlling and eliminating the factors. GIGABYTE establishes the relevant risk assessment process, and the occupational safety and health contact person of each business unit performs regular risk scoring. Risks are divided into 4 levels according to the scoring results. Level 1 represents the highest risk and level 4 represents the lowest. Further assessment of whether the Company’s current operating control procedures are sufficient to respond to the listed risks are then conducted. When necessary, a management process will be adjusted according to the identification results to prevent the occurrence of occupational accidents.
