Protecting the occupational health and safety of employees is the basic responsibility required of a corporation. Safety first and cautious protection are our core values. All production bases have incorporated the OHSAS 18001 occupational safety certification management system, which defines clear regulations for operation practices that employees are to observe. These include labor management procedures, an environmental safety and health handbook, health regulations, and occupational illness prevention regulations, thereby providing a comprehensive set of measures aimed at protecting the health and safety of our employees.

Getac's management target is to achieve zero deaths and occupational illnesses. We continue to implement workplace health and safety management practices in the hope that all of our employees can work happily and return home safely.

There were sixteen reported cases of employees suffering disabling injuries in 2017. The disabling injury frequency rate (IR) was 0.24 (per 200,000 hours of work). There were no workplace fatalities.
