Disasters are intuitively perceived by the average person as unintended, unplanned or unplanned disasters. Due to the large number of equipment in the factory area and frequent human-computer interaction, how to implement autonomous safety inspections to prevent machine failure and human negligence has always been an important issue in work safety. The safety and health team regularly continues to carry out occupational safety and health inspections in various factories, conducts hazard identification and risk assessment in advance for each operation, and proposes preventive and control measures for hazards to ensure the safety of employees in the workplace.

In order to grasp the reality of the working environment of employees and the planning implemented to assess the labour situation, it is necessary to develop appropriate strategies and comply with legal norms.
Establish a complete occupational disaster network notification mechanism, through which in addition to analyzing the types of disasters suffered by colleagues, we also track the recovery status of occupational disaster victims and conduct a resumption assessment. According to the results of the analysis of the type of disaster, the common disasters are held as education and training lectures for colleagues. In addition, in order to significantly reduce various forms of violence in various places, data books have been established and courses such as workplace unlawful abuse, workplace mental health and workplace skeletal and musculoskeletal injury prevention, and maternal protection plan advocacy have been established.
For all staff, we conduct safety and health disaster prevention courses for personnel, and provide explanations from professionals to improve the ability of new employees to respond to emergencies at work.
The safety and health team, for maternal, illegal infringement, overload, human factors engineering, workplace mental health, return to work, distribution assessment and work accident tracking care, planning and visiting factory first aid kit configuration, employee health examination report health consultation, and work environment improvement measures and suggestions.
An accident is not an unforeseen accident or misfortune caused by the intent, negligence, misconduct or omission of the parties. The causal relationship between physical illness and risk factors at work may be occupational injuries. The “prevention” of occupational injuries and diseases is very important, in order to implement occupational safety and health control, establish an executive organization for the division of powers and responsibilities, further strengthen the prevention of occupational injuries, and move towards the goal of the best healthy workplace.
In accordance with the relevant provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Law, NAFCOa regularly declares statistical analysis of occupational disasters online every month. In order to follow the handling of occupational disaster accidents, establish an occupational disaster accident notification mechanism to grasp the occupational disaster status of employees in real time. At the same time, the recovery status of those affected by occupational disasters is tracked for distribution and resumption of work assessment. The safety and health team will also immediately launch an accident investigation, conduct accident investigation and analysis, deal with it and develop improvement measures, and regularly advocate relevant safety and health matters to prevent similar situations from happening again.
In accordance with the labor health protection rules, NAFCO provides employee health examination services every year, including special physical examination and general physical examination. After the physical examination, according to the health classification management of the labor health protection rules, the labor health service doctor will formulate the health examination report for the abnormal items of the health examination, and at the same time manage and care to ensure that the health of the practitioners is in good health and there are no infectious diseases.
