Occupational Safety and Health Management Plan

GIGABYTE Headquarters, Taoyuan Nanping Factory as well as the Dongguan and Ningbo Factories in China have all obtained ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety System certification. The scope of management includes employees, on-site contractors, visitors, and any personnel near the workplace that may affect organizational activities. Please visit Quality and Environment Management Certification to review the certificates.

A permanent OHS contact point was established in each business group to ensure effective OHS management. The Occupational Health and Safety Committee was also set up, which is composed of the Group Operation Management Center, managers of business units, as well as labor representatives, whose the number account for more than one-third of the committee members. The OHS Committee is convened quarterly together with subsidiariesʼ OHS Committees to examine OHS management policy and matters, and to continue optimizing and managing the OHS risks at the company to ensure a safe and hygienic working environment for employees.

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 defines risk assessment processes, which are then periodically assessed by the OHS contact point in each business group. The assessments cover operational frequency, workflow, equipment and materials used, and operating environment. Risks are divided into 4 levels according to the assessing results. Further assessment of whether the Company’s current operating control procedures are sufficient to respond to the listed risks is then conducted. When necessary, a management process will be adjusted according to the identification results to prevent the occurrence of occupational accidents.
