To maintain high workplace safety standards,
Samsung continuously assesses its workplace for potential risks. All Samsung sites worldwide have health and safety management system standards in place. Since the ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System was established in 2018, all Samsung workplaces, beginning with those in Korea, made the transition from OHSAS 18001 certification to ISO 45001. As of the end of 2020, all worksites have acquired the ISO 45001 certification and have implemented an occupational health and safety management framework that meets the latest ISO 45001 specifications.
With the updated occupational health and safety management system, Samsung strives to provide a safer and healthier workplace for all employees and prevent work-related injuries and health issues.
Samsung Semiconductor’s dedicated fire brigade and chemical response teams operate 24/7 to ensure they can be dispatched to any site at any time.
They also offer emergency support to the local communities. The teams receive regular training to deal with the different types of emergencies that may arise and continue to carry out research and implement innovations to offer an emergency response service tailored to meet the specific needs of semiconductor workplaces.
Safety compliance during management and supervision
Sustainable best safety compliance
With the prompt response to an accident, assessing and eliminating harmful risk factors in advance is the
key to preventing safety accidents.
Samsung Semiconductor has a dedicated organization that conducts safety and health risk assessments to identify harmful risk factors in advance.
A total of 12,833 risk assessments were conducted in 2022, and of those, 90 cases of high-grade improvements were identified and fully resolved.
Samsung Semiconductor has processes in place to safely handle new chemicals and prevent related accidents before using these chemicals.
When introducing a new chemical, we conduct a “chemical pre-assessment” to assess environmental, safety, health, and disaster prevention hazards and risks, and even after the in-house introduction of such chemical, follow-up checks are carried out through the work environment assessment.
