Occupational Health and Safety
BizLink remains committed to protecting the environment, reducing risks, providing a safe and healthy work environment, and creating an outstanding life for our employees. BizLink established the Global Sustainability Center (GSC) in April 2020, which is responsible for occupational safety and health management at our 17 production sites and 5 offices worldwide. Furthermore, BizLink’s production sites appoint full-time, dedicated and professional safety and health personnel, who are responsible for carrying out and implementing safety, health, and environmental protection work based on the ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System, so as to promote compliance with local occupational safety and health regulations at our production sites.
BizLink Group has established the incident investigation procedure, which requires any work-related accident that takes place at a production site, along with details of the accident, to be reported to the GSC and the human resource management team within 24 hours, and a review and improvement report to be submitted shortly thereafter. In 2021, BizLink recorded a total of 70 work-related accidents (including near-misses), and completed all incident investigation and improvement reports. Hand injuries accounted for 68.6% of all accidents while 48.6% resulted from improper operation based on an analysis of the statistics on work-related accidents throughout the year. BizLink has launched the protective equipment inventory audit plan in 2021 to carry out a comprehensive review of all hand-operated machinery and equipment with the aim of reducing the risks of hand injuries. Meanwhile, BizLink has established safe operating procedures and conducts pre-onboarding and regular training for operators to prevent injuries resulting from violations of these procedures among operators.
No work-related death was reported at BizLink in 2020.
