Welcome to the
safety academy
for Samsung
Semiconductor’s partners and
their employees

Samsung Semiconductor operates a dedicated department that focuses on partner environmental safety management support. In 2020, we carried out periodic environmental safety assessments at 511 of our key partners, which were followed up with consulting services for the partners that we found needed improvement.

Our partners’ safety
our safety

The assessments revealed that 36 of our partners were highly vulnerable to risk and needed urgent change in how they manage on-site health and safety. To help those partners raise their environmental safety management standards, we provided consulting tailored to each of the partner’s environments. As a result, they saw significant improvement in 373 areas including periodic training, risk assessments and environmental contaminant management.

Samsung Semiconductor also offers professional environmental safety training to our partners through the Environmental Safety Academy. The courses are designed to raise awareness of the importance of environmental safety across the supply chain and help our partners and their employees create a strong health and safety-conscious work environment.

Strengthening the safety capabilities of partner companies through training

We provide training to executives and employees of our partner companies through the Samsung Semiconductor Partners’ Environmental Safety Academy. The Environmental Safety Academy is a program that we have run since 2019 to raise awareness of environmental safety and strengthen the capabilities of partner companies’ executives and employees. With the opening of the Environmental Safety Academy in 2019, we opened the Pyeongtaek Environmental Safety Academy in 2022, and are offering professional training related to environmental safety to our partner companies. We are running 25 courses and 300 training sessions per month, including legally mandatory training, an environmental safety training system, and a self-study support program.

A spacious five-story
building for partner
employees to receive
advanced training

The Environmental Safety Academy is situated on the outskirts of Seoul near our Giheung/Hwaseong sites and offers different types of innovative health and safety training in a large five-story building.

The building is large enough to offer a mix of training methods and amenities, from classrooms, VR experience rooms and a musculoskeletal center to rest areas, providing ample space for both lecture-type and on-hands learning. In addition to training courses, the academy offers seminars for partner CEOs as well as mindfulness sessions for managing stress.

Shifting the paradigm of safety management to focus on the people

In order to manage the environmental safety risks of our partner companies, we are training explosion-proof technicians and risk assessment specialists for them. We also carry out inspections on the assessment results in order to implement practical improvements and effectively prevent serious accidents according to the work risk assessments of our partner companies. In 2022, we conducted a training program for explosion-proof technicians and trained 630 explosion-proof technicians for a total of 64 partner companies. Also by training 1,294 risk assessment experts for 494 partner companies, we prevent accidents and contribute to improving our partner companies’ own safety management capabilities.

“To build a forward-thinking
environmental safety system,
we need health and
safety management to shift
to a human-centered paradigm”

- Park Chanhoon, Executive Vice President of
Global Infrastructure
at Samsung Electronics

By offering not just technical training but also leadership courses and mindfulness sessions at the Samsung Semiconductor Environmental Safety Academy, we aim to create a human-centered paradigm for health and safety management.
