Workplace Safety

ASUS elevated the awareness of worker safety and ensured workplace safety through safety and health hazard identification, education and training promotion, disaster prevention drills and coorganizing emergency response training with local fire departments, among other self-management, in addition to the rollout of Workplace GO Safety Reward System to all employees and setting "incident-free" target.

To boot, with an eye on encouraging participation of all employees and achieving effective communication, ASUS established an "Occupational Safety and Health Committee" comprising 18 working level and management members. Meetings are convened quarterly to review the relevant safety and health issues stipulated in the laws and regulations, including the contents of occupational disaster investigation reports, operating environment monitoring results, safety and health education and training and annual audit results.

Every year, ASUS invites SERASUS members from various departments and Safety&Health Dept. to jointly conduct the "Environmental Consideration and Safety and Health Risk Identification". At the same time, with an objective two-way view, the past occurrences, potential hazards, current affairs issues, annual audits or incidents reported by stakeholders of various departments are reviewed, and the Annual Material Environmental Considerations and Intolerable Risks are determined by the composite rating.

Healthy Workplace

ASUS adheres to the business philosophy of "inspire, motivate, and nurture employees," by providing annual health check-up service, which is superior to the provisions set out in the "Regulations Governing the Labor Health Protection,"to its employees. In addition, any abnormality discovered in the check-up is analyzed, managed and tracked according to the level of severity. Doctors and nurses regularly monitor the abnormality, assist in medical referrals, and promote various health promotion activities. We believe this could help employees to have a healthy body.

The participation rate of colleagues in Taiwan hit 95% in 2021, and with the care and follow-up by occupational health nurses, some 80% of individuals with highly high anomalies have completed their re-examinations, treatments or improvements. Additionally, ASUS achieved the goal of sustainable operation of healthy workplaces by partnering with neighboring hospitals, while promoting health activities.

ASUS provides occupational disease prevention and consultation with professional medical specialists for employees, and developed a health management platform to carry out ergonomic hazards, maternity protection, overwork and abnormal health check-ups so as to filter at-risk groups. Intervention care would be offered by nurses, occupational safety personnel, and human resources personnel, and where necessary, clinical consultations would be arranged to execute the prevention and management of occupational diseases. Occupational specialists have stepped in to improve and follow up with personnel with ergonomic, maternity and overwork anomalies in 2021.

ASUS takes the physical, mental and spiritual health of employees very seriously and promoted holistic health development plans, with health advocacy covering:

In 2018, ASUS received the highest honor (the National Occupational Safety and Health Award - Corporate Standard Award) from the Ministry of Labor, and the Taipei City Safety Award - Excellent Unit for 4 consecutive years.

Five-Star Psychological Care

Over and above organizing online psychological seminars for employees to participate in, articles related to pandemic prevention were posted on the employee care website from time to time to stick with our colleagues through thick and thin.

 

Caring of Female Employees

In order to take care of the health and safety of employees during pregnancy, we offer pregnancy gifts and courtesy parking spaces, and settle special rest chairs in the room to help pregnant mothers feel comfortable and relax during their lunch breaks. In 2019, we optimized the environment of the breastfeeding room through access control and independent compartments, providing a friendly environment for breastfeeding.

In 2021, the return to work rate for females after parental leave in Taiwan and after maternity leave in China was 84% and 94%, accordingly; the retention rate for females after returning to work for 12 months in Taiwan and in China was 84% and 81%, respectfully. The high return to work rate and retention rate in Taiwan and China show that ASUS would not force females to leave due to pregnancy or parenting and that it is committed to providing a gender equality environment.

Parent-child Relationship

This helps to reinforce parent-children relationships and share the same hobby, and nurture positive family interactions. There are also family days and department gathering days for the family members to join. Summer camp and winter camp are also organized for the children.
