Fully Implement a Safety Culture to Enhance Individuals' Awareness
UMC has dedicated significant effort to promoting and developing its industrial safety and health activities. UMC also understands the importance of practicing and implementing industrial safety measures as a means to realize sustainable growth. As such, UMC not only invests in preventive equipment to conform to international standards, but also trains its employees on health and safety practices and instills the values of sustainable growth. Since 2005, following the lead of UMC's chairman, UMC has promoted the "Safety is my Responsibility" program to implement self - management and safety protection activities in each division with the goal of a zero-accident rate. UMC hopes to distinguish itself as the standard for practicing industrial safety and health activities.
Industrial Safety Management
After adopting international standards, UMC established and implemented its environmental, safety and health management system. In 2001, UMC had ISO 14001(International Organization for Standardization Series 14001, an ISO standard for environmental management) and OHSAS 18001(Occupational Health and Safety Assessment series 18001) certificates. In 2019, UMC had ISO 45001 (International Organization for Standardization Series 45001, an ISO standard for management systems of occupational health and safety) certificate.
In terms of internal safety management measures, since 1997, executive managers including the chairman, vice-chairman, presidents, vice-presidents, and fab directors have conducted semi-annual environmental safety and health inspections for each fab. The fabs not only report their achievements in safety and hygiene programs, but also review improvement measures and results. Through the participation of executive managers, better safety methods and systems can be adopted through discussion and introduced to each fab to help establish better safety and hygiene management.
For preventive equipment management, UMC's comprehensive equipment safety management measures require that UMC's vendors propose a third-party SEMI S2 evaluation report prior to equipment procurement to ensure all equipment meets safety requirements. When moving and positioning equipment in the fabs, UMC conducts many safety control programs, such as finding the best path for transport, mobile safety control and directional equipment unloading.
To ensure all equipment strictly complies with safety standards, UMC also conducts a three - stage equipment sign - off program for equipment installation. The first stage is to test if the equipment is functioning as designed. The second stage includes checking built-in fire control mechanisms and the completion of various protective equipment installation and labels. The final stage includes verifying the readiness of its standard operating procedure, the completion of the training programs for those who operate it, and if deficiencies found in the previous two stages have been corrected. Equipment will not be released unless it passes all three stages of the equipment sign-off program.
Safety Performance Indicators
UMC continues to promote various safety and hygiene management programs to prevent injuries and accidents during manufacturing processes and daily activities. Through periodical update, safety performance indicators can be used as the basis for continually achieving excellent safety performance.
UMC cares about labor safety and hygiene, and uses computerized system for reporting and investigation of accidents/incidents. Accidents/incidents are reviewed monthly for root causes and preventive actions. The data of Injury Frequency Rate (FR) & Injury Severity Rate (SR) from year 2015 to year 2019 are listed below :
FR = (Number of Lost time cases ÷ Number of hours worked by all employees) × 1,000,000
SR = (Number of lost workdays ÷ Number of hours worked by all employees) × 1,000,000
No major accidents. The disabling frequency rate (FR) and the disabling severity rate (SR) were 0.23 and 2 respectively in 2019, and both were far below the average rate in Taiwan semiconductor industries.
